Edible Long Island, a media company telling the story of how the Island eats and drinks, is a great source whether you’re looking for a great breakfast spot, the best lobster roll and everything in between. This week, we highlight delectable hot chocolate.

To order with whipped cream or without whipped cream? That is no question at all.

 

If you are looking for something warm and sweet to get you and your family through the cold this winter, check out these local coffee shops for a cup of hot cocoa.

The Babylon Bean has always been one of my favorite places to stop in for a quick bite to eat and grab a Café Au Lait. Now that I have children, I love popping in for hot chocolate after going for a stroll through Babylon Village.

As a longtime fan of The Babylon Bean, I was thrilled when their sister shop, The Bay Shore Bean opened in my hometown. Now I can bundle my kids and dog up for an afternoon walk into town. The atmosphere is warm and cozy with live music on the weekends. Plenty of spots to sit and thaw out with a little coffee and hot cocoa.

The Bay Shore Bean, 47 East Main Street, Bay Shore (631) 647-7971, open Monday – Thursday 6:00 AM – 11:00 PM, Friday & Saturday 6:00 AM – 12:00 AM, Sunday 6:00 AM – 8:30 PM

This is a fun and funky little coffee shop located in the heart of Northport Village. Make sure you order plenty of their famous freshly baked pastries for your family to enjoy with their signature hot chocolate. Don’t fret if hot chocolate isn’t quite your thing, stop by the espresso bar instead!

Caffé Portofino, 249 Main Street, Northport (631)262-7656, open every day 7:00 AM – 8:00 PM.
