Where Else Cafe, Viman Nagar, Pune
This quaint café is a great option if you want to hang out with your buddies after college. They have Mexico inspired Spiced Hot Chocolate, Milk and White Hot Chocolate too so you can take your pick. All of them seem fine but the one that is most loved is the Dark Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows. It is a good idea to top it with some sweet fluff and add a good balance to your dark chocolate.
Wafflin' Around, Viman Nagar, Pune
This café is spread across 4 outlets in the city and they offer a decent Hot Chocolate. The Hot chocolate here is rather too sweet for our liking but they add cacao powder to add the balance. The fancy and upmarket interiors of the quick eatery are nice and you can chill here for a while.
Daily Treats, The Westin Pune Koregaon Park, Pune
The luxurious experience of enjoying a fancy cup of Hot Chocolate is unmissable. You must drive down to Daily Treats and spend some quality time here with plush interiors and fine service. The Hot Chocolate is served with a topping of Whipped Cream and that adds a really good touch. You can always ask them to top it with some warm chocolate sauce that adds another note of bitter chocolate goodness.
Sante Spa Cuisine, 1st Lane, Koregaon Park, Pune
Amongst the very few organic, vegetarian and health food restaurants, this has been a favourite of many. The Hot Chocolate here comes with some dusting of Valrhona, premium French chocolate that is outstanding. The bitter aftertaste of the Hot Chocolate is amazing and something that can be addictive too. You can make your Hot Chocolate with Almond Milk or Coconut Milk if you are vegan.
