    Burdick's secret to its famous hot chocolate: hand-shaved chocolate warmed in milk -- decadence. For dessert, try the Harvard Square: a dense chocolate cake layered with walnuts and vanilla. Read more

    Everything! Wonderful ganaches. Hot chocolate is thick and rich, the small is heaven enough, the large is diabetes inducing. Cakes are delicious. You can't go wrong. But very pricey!!!

    AMAZING milk hot chocolate and macarons. All of their macarons are good and don't have all that unnatural coloring you see in many other places. Awesome environment with great service.

    Whoaaa: drink a milk chocolate Burdick Mocha. So good - probably the most chocolatey mocha ever! Also the chocolate-raspberry cake is the perfect mix of ganache and fruit.

    Best hot chocolate in Boston- make sure you check their small chalk board just to the right of the cash register for possible hot chocolate flavor of the day Read more

    Indeed awesome the hot milk dark chocolate. For first timers go for the classic. After that can try the single source, which is even darker.

    Aside from the hot chocolate, which is so delish & rich you only need the smallest size, for a change, try the chai latte. Splurge on a macaron or 2.

    This place is best for their dark chocolate, but they also pull the best shot of espresso in Harvard Square (unless you hike it to Simon's). Try both!

    Have the apple tart when in season! The apples are sliced into perfectly baked thin slices and arranged artfully on a yummy crust. So good!

    Hot chocolate at Burdick is the perfect winter day pick me up. Get the Demi size, it's perfect. Milk Chocolate is amazing, as is Dark Chocolate.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned the cannelés! Extremely crusty exterior with a moist center. Could be more custardy - but the flavor is phenomenal!

    Try the macaroons (only 75 cents!), soak up the European atmosphere, and above all, do not miss the hot chocolate--as rich as it comes. Read more

    The Boston Globe named Burdick’s hot chocolate as the best in Massachusetts, but don't leave without trying their lavender macaron!

    Yummy chocolate frozen yogurts from BoYo! One of the many chocolatiers you'll visit while going on a chocolate tour through Boston.

    try the 1/2 single source + 1/2 white/dark/milk chocolate! comes at the price of the hot chocolate and not the single source :)

    It can't be said enough. The hot chocolate here is so delish, I ended up buying some so I could make it at home. Well-worth it!

    I stopped here in my quest for the best hot chocolate in the world; this smooth, super-rich, flavorful cup is definitely in the running.

    Famous for its chocolate mice and hot chocolate, and not without ample cause. Also an excellent place to pick up gifts.

    Get a pot of the Russian tea, and a slice of the hazelnut/orange cake (you'll know it: it's thickly coated in chocolate). Nom.

    Rich hot chocolate and desserts! If you're coming from the Harvard T station, go down Church St instead of Brattle. I still find streets in Boston confusing...

    Their dark hot chocolate is very good but their chocolate macaroons are a massive fail. They are too tough for my liking.

    Addictive Hot Chocolate. A piece of heaven on earth. Order it half Dark / half white for a premium tasting experience.
    Elie Mouchrik · April 13, 2013
  • Jenny M.
    The lavender macaron, wrapped in a piece of wax paper for carrying, is the perfect chic treat. Pair it with a small dark chocolate and wander Harvard Square feeling decadent.

    Dark hot chocolate os to die for but make sure to ask for the demi. The small can be a bit heavy

    The hot chocolate here is the best in the area. The tiny 2oz serving is the perfect size. Nice staff always.

    Best REAL hot chocolate in Boston or most of the US ... or most of Europe for that matter. Just enjoy.

    Oh where do I begin.... Unique desserts and seasonal drinks. Buy a box of chocolate for that spoiled foodie. And get a hot chocolate for yourself

    Amazing hot chocolate. Not many seats and if they're all taken you're forced to get your order to-go.

    The Apple Tart is scrumptious with just the right amount of sweetness and a fresh apple flavor.

    Drinks don't taste any different in porcelain or paper so just enjoy the best chocolate in town however you were blessed with it

    Macaroons are $1 now... And rarely an available table! But so worth it!!!!

    Everything is amazing here. If you don't like chocolate, this place will convert you. And if you do, it's a cocogasm.

    Pour some sugar on me. Or down my throat. As long as it's in the form of a dark hot chocolate.
