The best hot chocolate in Paris for takeout
Whether you’re having it for breakfast or as a snack, hot chocolate is the best drink to warm up you during these cold winter days. Below is a list of the best addresses in Paris to get hot chocolate from.
Cyril Lignac’s Chocolate Factory
The pastry chef that works at La Chocolaterie Cyril Lignac has been creating all sorts of deliciously chocolaty treats since 2016. On the snack menu, we have a generous portion of marble cake, a chocolate chip cookie, marshmallow bears… In short, a whole bunch of crunchy, gourmet pastries and sweets created by Cyril Lignac and Benoît Couvrand. Of course, they’re even better with a hot chocolate to go.
La Chocolaterie de Cyril Lignac, 25 rue Chanzy, 75011 Paris.
To enjoy Angelina‘s hot chocolate at home, simply purchase a bottle of this old-fashioned hot chocolate for €10 from their online shop. All that’s left to do then is to heat the drink in a pan or in the microwave. It’s just like being there. The only downside is that the hot chocolate will not be accompanied by one of their exquisite Mont-Blanc deserts.
Angelina, 108 Rue du Bac, 75007 Paris.
Tenderness for takeaway? Go to Plaq, a chocolate maker on Rue du Nil. The hot chocolate is served with a huge knob of light cream that melts into the smooth drink. Pure pleasure.
Plaq, 4 Rue du Nil, 75002 Paris.
Looking for somewhere to get vegan hot chocolate from? Then look no further than Toraya, who prepares their hot chocolate with organic soy milk. You won’t get your hot chocolate served with whipped cream here, but rather with a touch of matcha tea that blends perfectly with the intensity of the cocoa.
Toraya, 10 Rue Saint-Florentin, 75001 Paris.
Since the best Belgian chocolate is also to be found in Paris, you might as well grab your cup of hot chocolate to take away at Pierre Marcolini‘s, in the 16th arrondissement. This chocolate maker travels to the four corners of the world to find the best beans to add to the hot chocolate or in the pastries. This year, Pierre Marcolini won the Best Pastry Chef of the World award at the World Pastry Stars 2020.
Pierre Marcolini, 89 Rue de Seine, 75006 Paris.
Mococha is like a chocolate library where the greatest names of French chocolate makers are stored. The shop specialises in very high quality handmade chocolates. This gives you an idea of what awaits you in a glass of hot chocolate. Pro tip: during the confinement, deliveries by courier are free of charge within a radius of 2 kilometres from the shop.
Mococha, 89 rue Mouffetard, 75005 Paris.
Yann Couvreur Pâtisserie
Thanks to click & collect, it’s still possible to pick up your hot chocolate from Yann Couvreur during the confinement. It’s also the perfect opportunity to snub one’s local bakery in favour of his many pastries on offer, such as the Iranian pistachio tart, a house favourite.
Yann Couvreur Pâtisserie, 137 avenue Parmentier, 75010 Paris.
Maison Aleph has created a new menu, one which mixes the tastes of France with those of the Middle East to reinterpret many wonderful delicacies. This is the case with its hot chocolate which has been mixed with three spices: cardamom, cinnamon and nutmeg. This hot chocolate is available in the shop or on the Maison Aleph website in 1 litre or 500ml bottles.
Maison Aleph, 20 rue de la Verrerie, 75004 Paris.
Edwart hot chocolate is perfect for those that love a strong cocoa taste. Its strong flavour is due to the fact that it’s made from chocolate that comes from Guatemala and Madagascar, which is melted in water to preserve the power of the flavours. Luckily, it’s possible to replicate at home with the hot chocolate preparation sachet that contains nuggets to melt.
Edwart, 17 rue Vieille du Temple, 75004 Paris.
