Will your heart lean towards a mug or a bowl? Psst! Don’t hesitate to ask for their recipe, and leave with everything you need to make this precious nectar at home!

La Pinte

Speaking of La Pinte’s delicious farm milk, did you know that besides a full range of milk products, their Ayer’s Cliff boutique offers exquisite caramels, succulent spreads, amazing coffees and hot chocolate drinks? A delicious cup of cappuccino and a rich-tasting mug of hot chocolate constitute the perfect complements to a family day spent outside in the snow. And for the next morning’s croissants, dulce de leche, chocolate spread and salty caramel will be your best allies.

1060 Westmount St., Ayer’s Cliff – 819 867-0131.


Chocolats Vanden Eynden

After a day on the slopes or ice fishing on Lake Memphremagog, how about stopping by a bar … serving chocolate? This is precisely what Magog’s Chocolats Vanden Eynden is proposing! Chocolate chips sold in bulk, fine chocolates sold individually, all kinds of chocolate bars, sweet treats, pastries and waffles, coffee and most important of all, divine hot chocolate drinks await!

Appalaches Torréfacteur Roaster

For nearly two years, this little gem of a business has been operating in the heart of the town of Mansonville: Appalaches Torréfacteur acts both as a micro-roaster and a small, very friendly café! Here, when it comes to preparing hot chocolate, they don’t take any shortcuts! Indeed, they choose only the finest quality ingredients! Warm La Pinte milk and melted chocolate made by Chocolat Dicitte (who produce all their chocolates from the beans to the bar!)… We say YES! For an après-ski family moment, this stop will become a true must.

4, des Pins St., Mansonville — 579 531-8787


Mange ta Main Garde l’Autre pour Demain

Finally, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention this very charming neighbourhood café/ready-to-eat caterer/ecological grocery store in Lac-Mégantic, although it has unfortunately not yet reopened its little dining area. However, this shouldn’t stop you from treating yourself at Mange ta Main Garde l’Autre pour Demain (MTM for intimates). By visiting their online boutique you’ll find everything you’ll need to feed your family very well! We especially suggest you add their different-size superb hot chocolate drink mix to your basket! Pick-ups are made at the café, Thursdays or Fridays, between 12:00 p.m and 7:00 p.m and on Saturdays between 8:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Some delivery options are available.

3807 Villeneuve St., Lac-Mégantic – 819 582–5136.

Géogène Café-Buvette

A true lair for specialty (and ethical!) coffee lovers, the Géogène micro-roaster’s Café-Buvette is the perfect place for an end-of-day family break. When you consider how much care the owners put into making their coffee, it’s no surprise to learn that their hot chocolate is made from grated bean-to-bar chocolate. As frothy as you wish, topped with your choice of marshmallows … it will quickly become your children’s favourite!
