Even Channel Four was there, so you know that City Bakery’s month-long Hot Chocolate Festival is a big deal. I headed over with co-workers on the first day, on which the special flavor (which changes daily) was Lemon. It tasted like a lemon dusted crepe with melted chocolate, which is the consistency of their outrageously thick hot chocolate. The four of us could have easily shared a mug, which will make this a perfect date place to share some sweets with your sweet.
Come Valentine’s Day City, they’ll feature a Love Potion flavor (mysterious!) – and if things don’t work out, the staff consists of a number of very good looking young men.
