Hot Chocolate

I’ve found two great restaurants for hot chocolate… both with a different temptation. One serves chocolate from Chiapas and Tabasco and the other from Morelia.

Why didn’t I know there was so much wonderful chocolate in Mexico?

Chocolates Johfrej
Chocaholics beware. At Jesus 2A this chocolate shop has an addictive selection of hand crafted chocolates. My favorite is the dark chocolate with a bit of chile.

Johfrej uses cacao nacional from Tabasco and Chiapas.

I also loved the cup of hot chocolate. The best part was the elegant, Mexican inspired chocolate set it was served in which gave me two full cups for just 25 pesos.

Round II? I heard the ice cream is ridiculously good.
Café Cathedral
I’ll always walk out of my way to grab a good eye opener…especially when it involves chocolate and it was worth the trip to Canal 88 to get a delightful cup of cappuccino from Café Cathedral. Café Cathedral comes to San Miguel from Puerto Vallerta and their experience making great coffee shows.

They also use the best ingredients which includes organic coffee from Chipas and chocolate from Morelia.

The bonus: Everything is priced under 20 pesos.

Buen Apetito!
