On Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis there is a quaint shop called the Chocolate Café. The serve the best hot chocolate I have ever had, and I definitely suggest you check it out. They also have coffee, ice cream, and a smorgasbord of chocolaty treats.
A visit to the Chocolate Café is an especially good treat in December because you can see the Soldiers & Sailors Monument lit up like a Christmas Tree while warming yourself up with a cup of chocolaty deliciousness. I personally recommend the white hot chocolate, however, the Mexican hot chocolate is also really good and unique. It has a bit of a spicy kick due to the chili powder in it, but don’t let that scare you.
The Chocolate Café also usually has free samples available, and they’ll let you try almost any of the chocolates if you ask nicely. So even if you feel unsure about purchasing some of their tasty treats, at least stop by and give them a taste.
The Chocolate Café also has other locations in Indiana including; Castleton Square Mall in Indianapolis, South Bend, and Valparaiso.
