Stop No. 3: Xocolate
Location: 863 E. 700 South, Salt Lake City
The architecture is cool and the cocoa is hot at Salt Lake’s Xocolate, located conveniently next door to Nailed! Boutique. Despite the nice counter, cute chocolate display and super-helpful staff, this isn’t necessarily the place we’d go if we were hoping to sit down and chat with friends. It’s a little cold and the tables aren’t hang-out friendly.
But, to have a good cup of cocoa, yes definitely. Xocolate’s hot chocolate is served to-go. Don’t be fooled by the brew’s light and frothy texture or its creamy color—this chocolate is dark. And rich. With a regular chocolate at $3, for just 25 cents more, you can order yours “Aztec” for extra kick: a mixture that includes spices like hot peppers. We’ll definitely be going back when we’re in the mood for a hot chocolate that’s heavy on flavor and light on the stomach.
