When the cold wind starts to bring the chill to the Chicago area, we start to look for hot chocolate. At some point during the summer, I learned about The Heart of Europe Cafe in Barrington. I am frequently in Barrington during the fall and winter for various events, so I eagerly seized on the opportunity to check the cafe out.

Yes, I did get my hot chocolate. The hot chocolate is made by melting chocolate down from the bar. This is truly a sipping chocolate and one that you want to sit and relax to enjoy. Loved it! I have had similar in the past that were too decadent but this was perfect.
The entire cafe is an adorable spot to sit and relax in. There also is a kids' play area which is wonderful for families! Local art adorns the walls -- so you know I am smitten!
So happy to discover this cozy little nook. I can't wait to try more of the Heart of Europe's temptations!
