Best hot chocolate

Where is the best hot chocolate in Jackson Heights?  8)

From my adventures so far:

Best hot chocolate: 969 NYC Coffee

Worst hot chocolate: Espresso 77 (I don't think it actually contains any chocolate...)

It's always hot chocolate time :-)

I think 969 still has the best hot chocolate I have found. With Lety's as runner-up.

The hot chocolate from Farine is good especially with whipped cream and the shaved chocolate on top.

On the first cold snowy day, I head to La Nueva bakery for their chocolate caliente...not too sweet the way I like it.

Tried Farine's hot chocolate today. It was decent. Still much better at 969 NYC Coffee though.

Side note: I'm beginning to suspect the hot chocolate at 969 NYC Coffee must be really unhealthy because it tastes so much better than anything else I've tried.

Cannelle Patisserie's hot chocolate is amazing! I tried Farine's and found it underwhelming, seemed to be packaged nestle in milk. Have not tried 969's yet.

I have a feeling Oda's going to wonder why everyone is ordering his hot chocolate all of the sudden...

Oh no! That makes good alternatives even more crucial

I will investigate La Nueva and Cannelle soon...

Found Cannelle to be a bit too sweet. Of course, that can be fixed by adding more milk. Agree that Oda's is the best I've had in the neighborhood.

The one I occasionally make in my kitchen with bourbon.
