In days gone by a cup of cocoa or hot chocolate was considered to be a bedtime drink, but not anymore. Winter is the perfect time to enjoy a cup of yummy hot chocolate, it's one of the best ways to warm you up on a cold winter's day.
Hot Chocolate can be difficult to get just right, it has to have the right balance of ingredients, not too strong and not too sweet. Apart from the ever popular cup of Cadburys Drinking Chocolate that you make at home, hot chocolate is available in most cafés, but where is the Best Hot Chocolate in Perth?
One of the best chocolate makers in Perth also makes one of the best hot chocolates in Perth. Koko Black in Claremont uses a traditional Belgium recipe to freshly make their hot chocolate. As well as their regular flavoured hot chocolate, there are other blends such as chilli, hazelnut and mocha available and a cup will cost you just $6.00.
Chocolateria San Churro have several stores in Western Australia, and have a whole range of hot chocolate drinks on the menu. Made to an authentic Spanish recipe their hot chocolate is thick, rich and flavoursome. Available in Classic Spanish, Aztec, Naranja, Madrid Mocha and several other flavours.

The Margaret River Chocolate Company – Chocolate Café in Margaret River or the Swan Valley has divine hot chocolate made from only the finest cocoas, sources from around the world. They have stores in Perth and Fremantle too but unfortunately no Cafés.
There are many cafes that have Hot Chocolate drinks on the menu. Why not try Epic Espresso in West Perth, Choux Café in Cottesloe and Hush Espresso in Fremantle, they all have reputations for serving great Hot Chocolate.
Hot Chocolate is a very popular drink at any time, hot, rich and velvety smooth. Delicious, tasty and perfect to sip on a cold wintery evening, but where's the Best Hot Chocolate in Perth?
My quest is slightly different in needing my hot chocolate dairy-free. Delight in San Churro's arrival was replaced with horror when I'm told the chocolate is premixed with milk! So authentic - not.
Thank you to baristas in other places who make it on request and in shock. :)
And Thank You Sarah - you've restored my hope of finding divine hot chocolate in Perth made by artistes!
