The first sign this isn't your ordinary restaurant is all the vintage Easy Bake Ovens. The second is the hot cocoa, called the Barthelona, and made from chocolate imported from Spain. The top half-inch of the cup is covered with the day's "best whipped cream," a housemade vanilla bean froth that perfectly counters the decadent sweetness of the chocolate. Smaller appetites may want to try the "Shorty," a shot-glass sized serving that soothes the sweet tooth.
