    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!!!

    This is the best chocolate. They use excellent cocao and not too much sugar, so you really taste the chocolate. Yum! Favorites include snowmen, honey caramel, "Richelieu", pave glace and hot cocoa.

    Pro tip: Burdick's will automatically give you a to-go cup if there are no open tables. Send a member of your party to immediately secure a table while the other waits to place an order.

    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.

    There is a terrific variety of hot chocolates to try, from milk chocolate to spicy dark chocolate and single source chocolate. Come back every week and try them all.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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!

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

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

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

    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

    Addictive Hot Chocolate. A piece of heaven on earth. Order it half Dark / half white for a premium tasting experience.

    Chocolate is good, but the service really left me and my party extremely disappointed. It only works well if you take your order to go.

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

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