Le Chocolat du Bouchard: A Piece of Paris in the Chicago Suburbs
If you are looking for a little bit of chocolate heaven in the suburbs, Le Chocolat du Bouchard is the place to go. Le Chocolat Bouchard satisfies both those looking for a little dessert out or searching for a decadent gift or even those desiring something tempting to bring home.
When we originally visited Le Chocolat Bouchard, the destination consisted of a lovely chocolate cafe on one of the main drags of downtown Naperville. The cafe was and still is a wonderful place to stop for your favorite chocolate concoction including lattes, milkshakes, hot cocoas, sundaes, martinis and more! Of course, Le Chocolat Bouchard does not skimp on pastries and chocolate decadances including truffles. A quick turn around the cafe also reveals an amazing selection of single origin chocolate bars from around the world. So much to choose from!
On this visit, I had hot cocoa on the mind. After browsing the menu, I chose the Salted Chocolate Caramel and it was so yumptious that I had no problem finishing it!
My husband opted for a malt. We actually were visiting Naperville during on unseasonably warm winter day, so I am sure that my husband was pretty excited to have a malt! He went for the Venezuelan Dark Chocolate and once again the beverage quickly disappeared!
Le Chocolat du Bouchard has expanded since our previous visit. Next door to the cafe, you will npw find a treasure trove of chocolate creations that will make you feel like you have been transported to Paris.
The chocolate shop is truly a magical sight and like nothing else we have seen in the area--a place you just have to spend a few minutes absorbing!
If you are stumped for Valentine's Day, Le Chocolat du Bouchard is an easy and perfect choice! Le Chocolat does have some lunch selections during the week (not Saturday and Sunday) but the real story is the chocolate! We just have to visit whenever we are in Naperville!
