Thick hot chocolate in Zurich?

Hi all,

Just wanted to ask if anyone has happilly come across a cafe serving a real thick/rich hot chocolate beverage?

The best one I have tried yet in town was at Café Schober, and while it was nice it was not really to the standards I describe.


Disclaimer: I am aware that what I am describing is more like 'melted chocolate' rather than a drink, and I deal with the calorie conscience in person.

Thanks,
Ella

My favorite places for hot choc are Spruengli, Teecafé Schwarzenbach, Confiserie Honold, Cakefriends and Felix

Indeed! Dear me.. I hope the mods can edit it! Didn't realise - I'm sorry!

No I haven't tried it, so have you? Was it like this?

Cheers
Ella

Spruengli has many options to chose from and yes, I remember the hot chocolate I had was very rich in flavor and thick, almost like chocolate sauce.

Re: Thick hot chocolate in Zurich?

I think the stuff you're looking for is called cioccolata densa.


No idea where you'd get it, unless you fancy a trip to Lugano.

What about Cafe Felix at Bellevue? Been a few years, but I seem to recall....

My favourite is at Café Schober. I ask them to make it extra hot - and I think that makes it taste so much better than the lukewarm temperature at which they serve it usually.
