We scoured the metroplex in hopes of finding the best cups out there, and from rich drinking chocolate to a frozen version for warmer days, here’s where you’ll find the best hot chocolate in DFW.

Book Club Cafe

On the east side of DFW, the tastiest sips can be found at the Book Club Cafe. They offer 12 and 16oz hot chocolates, a variety of flavored milk and a menu filled with locally-sourced ingredients and freshly baked bread. There’s a family-friendly vibe, and, pre-COVID, they often had live music and other events at night. The Rowlett location is connected to the city library, so be sure to grab some reading material before you head in. If you’re looking for something stronger than hot chocolate, be sure to order “The Benny.”
