If it’s hot chocolate you’re looking for, Cincinnati’s got you covered. From a Belgium dive to a wine bar to a market chocolatier, you’ll find a delicious cup of cocoa to beat winter’s chill in the Queen City. I found four versions, each unique from each other and yet all so delicious. Plus, we discovered some fun stops along the way!
I grew up going to Cincinnati’s Union Terminal with my Grandpa, typically around the holidays. With my tiny hand in his, we’d wander from one end to the other, admiring the mosaic murals and the ten-story high ceilings in between. The appreciation I have now is thanks to him. Here are my favorite things about Union Terminal and what you mustn’t miss!
I get really excited when there’s something new I get to try in my local area. Especially when it’s been under my nose the whole time. That was my experience with Alglamesis Bros in Cincinnati. I grew up thinking Graeters was the Queen City’s one and only, but there’s room to share. This old-fashioned parlor is an experience to visit and serves not only really yummy ice cream, but Italian ice and chocolates, as well.
