Best Hot Chocolates In Mumbai To Explore This Winter In 2020

There couldn’t possibly be any debate without the mention of Hot Chocolates as one of the better drinks than all the Cappuccinos and Mochas of the world. While some like their assortments limited to Tea and Coffee but Hot Cocoa is the only exceptional beverage that has managed to capture that sweet string in our hearts. The only debate remaining after that is which kind of toppings would compliment a Hot Chocolate and make it more tempting and irresistible than it already is.

Generally the ideal image set by Rom Coms on how to enjoy Hot Cocoa is by sitting near the fireplace on a winter afternoon, snuggling into your coziest blanket, reading a book or watching Netflix can now only be considered old school and fictional too. For us Mumbaikars, a drink like Hot Chocolate is for those who want to sit in a café with their BFF and catch on the gossip they’ve missed since their last meeting.  Well, as our loving contribution and tribute to the goddess of beverages, we have curated this special list of Best Hot Cocos in Mumbai that are a must visit this time of year.
