    The hot chocolate is heavenly! It's thick, richly chocolatey (not a sugar bomb), and meant to be sipped and savored.

    Tried the Salted Maple Rosemary Latte. Now, I'm not a big fan of maple anything, and I've never had rosemary in my coffee, but I decided to trust the barista. Simply fabulous. I guarantee I'll be back
