A hot chocolate to remember

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Ottawa|Recipes and Food

I was so busy telling you about our recent coffee date at the Scone Witch that I forgot to write about about the fancy hot chocolate I enjoyed at Quelque Chose here in Westboro the other day. BEHOLD:

Hot chocolate at Quelque Choses in Ottawa

Isn’t it gorgeous? It was extra sweet, especially when paired with a lovely companion and fine conversation.

I confess that this MAY have inspired me to buy a mini-blowtorch. I want all of my hot chocolates to look like this!

Speaking of Westboro, if you’re a fan of Westboro Village and want to hear about great local finds, I recommend you sign up for my e-newsletter for exclusive Westboro content. I send one out every month or so, when I have something good to share. :)

Is this what you indulged in after we chatted? I have yet to try the hot chocolate….

Yes it was! It was a really nice treat. I’m definitely bringing the kids next time. :)
