Patrice Pâtissier

2360, rue Notre-Dame O, Montréal, QC H3J 1N4

This highly regarded pastry shop in Griffintown awaits you with a delicious hot chocolate enhanced with a sweet clover-flavoured froth.

Chocolat Genevieve Grandbois

138 Av Atwater, Montréal, QC H4C 2G3

The 65% Kalingo chocolate comes with a homemade marshmallow “skewer” and a Giandula biscuit, both covered in Dulcey blond chocolate.

Les Chocolats De Chloé

546, av Duluth E, Montréal, QC H2L 1A9

Chloé is back again this year for the third grand tour of hot chocolate, this time with a beverage made with white chocolate, matcha tea and lemon cream. Yum!

Au Festin De Babette

4085, rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2W 2M7

Our ‘seller of little pleasures” (true to its namesake) makes us want to be cold, just so we can go there and warm up with one of its hot chocolates, made with dark chocolate, ginger, cardamom and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

Automne Boulangerie

6500, av Christophe-Colomb, Montréal, QC H2S 2G8

This bakery on Christophe-Colomb, whose owners work hand in hand with local farmers, awaits you with a milky hot chocolate with almonds, chai spices and 58% cacao.

Café Prague

1317, av Van Horne, Outremont, QC H2V 1K7

This small cafe with a European feel in Outremont will surprise you with its triple choc and tonka bean (from the fruit of a Brazilian teak tree) variation on hot chocolate.

Crémy Pâtisserie Inc

2202, av du Mont-Royal E, Montréal, QC H2H 1K4

Thank to its mixture of Oaxaca chili-spiced dark chocolate – served with homemade marshmallows, we might add – it’s safe to say that Crémy will be making a lot of people happy on the crowded Mont-Royal Avenue. Take one sip and you won't be surprised Rémy Couture, Crémy's owner, won the Sugar Showdown on the Food Network in 2016. Get ready for a memorable treat!

La Fabrique Arhoma

1700 rue Ontario E, Montréal, QC H2K 1T4

Here they mix the hot chocolate with passion fruit and tarragon caramel to provide “a little pep in the winter”.

Le Butterblume

5836, boul Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2T 1T3

This new kid on Main hasn’t taken long to make a name for itself beyond Mile End! Go and see it for yourself while enjoying a hot beverage specially concocted for the occasion, with almond milk, ivory chocolate and orange zest.

Fous Desserts

809, av Laurier E, Montréal, QC H2J 1G2

Be warned, these people are genuinely crazy! Awaiting you here: a hot chocolate made with 70% chocolate from Venezuela, served with a smoked black cardamom infusion and white pepper. In store – for the adults among you – they also add a splash of bourbon “to warm things up.”

And it's a sixth time in a row for the MTLàTABLE festival, playing matchmaker between foodies and Montreal’s fine food establishments.
