It’s almost impossible for me to wander by L.A Burdicks and not stop in. As soon as the weather gets cool it’s my go-to spot for a sweet snack and cozy cup of something.
The Swiss chalet inspired facade is hard to miss, but set off from the main drag, it always feels intimate. The space is divided into two parts-cafe and shop. Browse the boxed chocolates or the seasonal sweets in the shop where you can pick up unique specialty gifts. When you’re ready to order jump in line at the cafe and grab a seat at one of the 10 wooden tables and benches.
L.A Burdick is, of course, famous for their chocolate regardless of what form it comes in. The most popular order is their hot chocolate, and for good reason. Using blend and single sources it’s much richer and creamier than any store bought brand. Try it in milk, white or dark. They source globally and fairly so it’s a great chance to try cocoa beans from different regions around the world. If hot chocolate isn’t your thing, don’t despair, L.A Burdick has a full cafe menu with coffees, teas and sweets too!
