The 5 Best Places in Lakewood for Hot Chocolate This Winter
Although Lakewood is one of the best places in the world for winter weather (with temperatures usually hovering around the high 60s), that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little warm-up and decadence with a cup of hot chocolate from these Lakewood favorites:
- Javatini’s Espresso
- Romeo Chocolates
- The Merchant
- Viento y Agua Coffee House
- Coffee Parlor
4214 Woodruff Ave
Enjoy a micro-foam, steamed hot chocolate treat at Javantini’s Espresso. The friendly baristas prepare magic in a mug with rich Ghirardelli Chocolate and real whipped cream. Looking for something with a little more kick? Try a Mexican hot chocolate, complete with all the right spices to make you feel like your abuelita made a delicious treat just for you.

And if the warm California weather’s got you a little overheated, try your hot chocolate frozen with Long Beach Creamery ice cream.
