St Louis House of Fine Ice Cream & Desserts

The kids recommend wholeheartedly the St Louis Hot Chocolate, which is their finest chocolate (dark or milk) heated and whipped with milk, topped with shavings of milk chocolate.  The other option is their regular hot chocolate – which comes with the rim of the cup dipped in melted chocolate as pictured below. This is one time when it is essential you lick your cup, and once you’re done, you may need to wipe off any chocolate smile on faces afterwards.

We also like their churros which comes with more melted chocolate for dipping. We’ll also sometimes order just a shot of the melted chocolate for a treat without the churros ie a tiny espresso glass or shot glass filled with warm melted milk chocolate.
