What happens when you mix a cup of hot, creamy milk, add melted chunks of rich, pure chocolate and infuse it with chili or cinnamon or mint? You get that hot and sweet heaven-in-a-cup treat called hot chocolate. Here are 5 places to experience Montreal’s amazing hot chocolate.
Juliette et Chocolat
Juliette et Chocolat has a the hot chocolate menu to rival all hot chocolate menus. Here are just a few ways you can order it:
Your Traditional choices are: dark extra bitter, bitter, milk or white.
If you prefer Dark Vintage hot chocolate, which is described as “intense and strong in taste, each with unique flavor,” there are more than a handful of different kinds of chocolate to choose from.
Then there are the Milk chocolate drinks to choose from which are smooth, mild and “have caramel, vanilla, honey and hazelnut notes”.
The Alcoholic chocolate drinks cannot be underrated. From the Choco-mojito (dark chocolate and cream of mint) to the Snow White (cold white chocolate with Baileys), these are ultimate adult versions of hot chocolate.

Suite 88 Chocolatier
If you are lucky enough to visit Suite 88 Chocolatier, you will be able to experience heaven in a cup. This is certainly not your ordinary hot chocolatier.
Take, for example, their Pumpkin Chai Hot Chocolate. It’s made with real pieces of rich chocolate melted in cream and perfectly flavored for a mouthful of fall flavor.
Or their Cayenne Chili Hot Chocolate. It’s made the traditional Mayan way and comes with the warning “Not recommended for those with sensitive tastebuds.”
Some other hot chocolate flavors at Suite 88 are: sea salt, ginger, orange, cinnamon and vanilla.
All of Suite 88’s hot chocolate drinks are made with chunks of real chocolate, never with powders or syrups.
