It’s that time of the year again, the one where your cheeks are rosy, your feet are cold and you try to get as cozy as possible with a favourite cup of  hot chocolate. Something to delight all of your senses and excite your sweet tooth as you walk around exploring the beauty of Sibiu City. We understand the joy that hot chocolate brings, how it connects you to a warm childhood memory and mostly so under the twinkling lights of the city. Hot chocolate for us is an experience so we’ve selected the best hot chocolate places if you want to stay in or take it to go. We put flavour first on this list, and trust me it doesn’t get tastier (or sweeter) than this.

The Refresh

An excellent option for the most unique of the holiday classic, try hot chocolate with brownie and coconut flakes, or how about a hazelnut delight? They all come served with whipped cream and if you decide to dine in,  a very cute holiday-classic mug. It’s overflowing with the true sweetness of the holiday season and the experience is right in the heart of the Piata Mare.


Here me out on this one, it’s about a ten minute walk outside of the city centre, however it is the only one with such a delicious selection of holiday hot chocolate. Who can resist a gingerbread flavoured hot chocolate, or bubblegum white hot chocolate? That’s the benefit of going to this artisanal local bakery, because they push the limits on what a good hot chocolate consists of and their flavour is unbeatable. Also, if you’re looking for hot chocolate with an edge we recommend trying their bailey’s blend, warm licheor and chocolatey goodness, it’s a chocolate work of art!

Chocolate Delice

If Willy Wonka visited Sibiu this is the first place, he would go. Chocolate Delice is well, chocolate heaven in Sibiu. Not only do they have chocolate making workshops, but if we’re talking about hot chocolate they turn up the heart to the next level with their hot chocolate bombs. This is a big explosion of delicious taste. Think, artisanal chocolate, with hot fresh milk poured over. It’s only a matter of seconds until the chocolate bomb burst with flavour and draws you with its wicked good charm.
