Top Spots for a Hot Chocolate in Cornwall

Published: Thursday 10th Oct 2019

For that scrumptious treat on a wintry day, not much beats a steamy, creamy hot chocolate.  But where to start?  Here’s our mouth-watering guide of our 3 best spots that’ll tickle the taste buds:

Poldhu Beach Café

Snuggle into your cosy layers and wrap your toasty mitt-clad hands around a cup that’s full to the brim with delicious liquid chocolate at Poldhu Beach Café.  Enjoy the views of Poldhu Beach near Mullion in far West Cornwall 363 days a year. From a ‘no frills’ classic hot choc to the ‘special’ that sports masses of cream, marshmallows and chocolate sauce all topped with Crunchie, Maltesers, Smarties, Rolo or Reese’s.  It’s glorious!

Kernow Chocolate

A hot chocolate from the specialists in ethically sourced chocolate making, Kernow Chocolate, will take you right back to your first taste of hot chocolate.  Watch Cornwall’s largest artisan chocolatiers at work, then relax back in their café with a mug of mouth-watering melted homemade chocolate.

Woods Café, Cardinham Woods

Cardinham’s Woods Café is the hidden woodland café that you’ll stumble upon whilst exploring Cardinham Woods for that gorgeous winter walk.  It’s a fairy-tale, Hansel and Gretel style cottage that whole-heartedly welcomes furry pooches too.  In winter, the ice cream shed transforms into a hot choc shed with an array of flavours from rich salted caramel to festive chocolate orange.
