When it’s this cold, it's easy to stay inside and cozy up in front of the fire. But if you are trying to carry on as always, you may need something extra special to help you face the wintery weather. Treat your kids and yourself to a tasty treat by checking out one of these local coffeehouses' hot chocolates.

Buon Girono Coffee

This coffeehouse opened up their first location in Grapevine more than 10 years ago, and has since expanded to Fort Worth and Southlake. And it’s no mystery why – their espresso drinks are tasty until the last drop, and their European Hot Chocolate is a game changer. It’s combination of rich flavors and creamy finish will have you coming back for more. Buon Girono Coffee is located right by Carroll Senior High School, so it’s a great pit stop after school.

Crepes Bistro

If you have time for breakfast this morning, check out Crepes Bistro in Colleyville. Their sweet and savory crepes, which you may see in our next issue – hint, are enough reason to stop in. But their delectable Hot Chocolate is definitely a reason to stay. To really step up your hot cocoa game, add in one of their flavors or sauces to create your own delicious masterpiece. It’s the perfect place to slow down and take time for yourself before jetting off on the rest of your morning. 

RE:defined Coffee House

This Grapevine coffee shop, which is opening a second location in October, is known for its cozy environment and delicious drinks. Their Hot Chocolate Chip will definitely put a smile as you continue through your day. They use melted TCHO Chocolate Chips to help their recipe stand out. So whether you are jetting out the door or want to linger a while with your newspaper, RE:defined Coffee House is a great place to start out your day.


For a classic hot chocolate recipe on the go, stop by your local Starbucks. Their signature Hot Chocolate is the perfect treat for finishing your errands or making it to work this morning. With steamed milk, vanilla and mocha-flavored syrups, their cups are known to keep both kids and parents happy. And their chocolate drizzle is the perfect addition on top. Because nothing goes better with chocolate than chocolate.
