If you are like me, you look for an excuse to go out and act all Sex and City by wearing a fun outfit just because or you feel fat and want to dress casually, but still go somewhere nice. Mindy’s Hot Chocolate is an adorable spot to plan a ladies’ night out or just the cutest date ever.
Mindy’s can be found just north of the hustle and bustle of the Wicker Park and Bucktown shops and bars on Damen Ave. The sleek furnishings and warm colors of the décor create a chic atmosphere without being pretentious.
Whether you’re looking for something savory or sweet, Mindy’s does not disappoint. The burger is sinfully good with aged cheddar and house made pickles on top, as well as, house made potato chips on the side. The pork belly salad should not even be called a salad, because it is so delectably tasty, you wonder whether or not you’re even eating a salad.
When it comes to desserts here you can’t go wrong with an award winning pastry chef in the kitchen creating things like the chocolate “souffled” tart with salted caramel ice cream or the brioche donuts with hot fudge and caramel corn. You can always choose to sip your dessert by getting a hot chocolate with house made marshmallows or my personal favorite, the chocolate martini. Cheers!
