Best Hot Chocolate Spots Near Naperville to Keep You Warm and Cozy

Embark on a cocoa-filled journey with these amazing hot chocolate spots!

While you can enjoy a cup of hot chocolate year-round, it just hits differently when it’s in the dead of winter. If you find yourself in the Naperville area, there are a number of places known for their delicious drinking chocolate. Here are our favorite finds.

Le Chocolat du Bouchard

Le Chocolat du Bouchard is also known as a west suburban chocolate heaven. After one sip of their rich and decadent hot chocolate, you’ll know exactly why. This gourmet chocolatier knows a thing or two about balancing the perfect chocolate taste, which is why they mix Belgain and Swiss cocoa styles. Their works of art are served in eight flavors, including mint chocolate, vanilla chai, toasted marshmallow, chocolate carmel and hot chocolate cherry.


Belgian hot chocolate is considered superior to other kinds of hot chocolate due to its ability to melt instead of bake. Get your chocolate fix at Firecakes, which elevates Belgian hot chocolate with a handmade mix of chocolate buttons, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Kids will enjoy topping it with their choice of chocolate shavings, hot fudge, caramel or sprinkles.

Café La Fortuna

If you haven’t tried Mexican hot chocolate before, Café La Fortuna has you covered. Their Mexican hot chocolate is made of a mixture of various spices, including cinnamon, vanilla, cloves and ancho chili pepper. These ingredients give off a sweet and spicy taste, creating a richer flavor and a more intense hot chocolate experience that’ll keep you wanting more. 

Owl & Lark

If you’re craving hot chocolate, Owl & Lark more than delivers on instant satisfaction. While their hot chocolate may sound simple, it’s made with pure love – otherwise known as a house made vanilla-mocha puree. The result is a velvety smooth hot chocolate that you’ll want to take your time sipping and savoring.

Wheely’s Coffee Lounge

Hot chocolate enthusiasts will love sampling all of the varieties offered at Wheely’s, which sets themselves apart by skipping a chocolate syrup base. Instead, they source the highest quality cocoa for their tasty creations like the Nutella, caramel, coconut, vanilla, peppermint mocha, Snickers or Oreo varieties.
