Hot Chocolate at Caffe Caldesi, London, United Kingdom

Caffe Caldesi is found on a cute little street right off Marylebone High Street in the heart of London. In the evenings it is completely full. Caldesi is a Michelin recommended restaurant that focuses on good, simple, authentic Italian food. Each of the tables in the café have a small newspaper that they produce every season with updates and information about the restaurant. I sit down and read through it. They talk about the Italian way to a better life, sourcing fresh and organic ingredients. The restaurant even has a cooking school where you can learn how to cook authentic Italian dishes.

So you can imagine that I was expecting a hot chocolate with the same quality as everything else they are doing. I sat myself down on a table near the window and watched as the bartender prepare my drink…with Cadbury hot chocolate powder. Really?! What happened to authentic Italian? Organic? Quality ingredients? Cadbury isn’t bad but I was expecting something worthy of a Michelin recommended restaurant. The hot chocolate was presented very nicely but was too sweet for me.

Verdict: The atmosphere is nice and cosy so maybe try this place out for dinner, or for a coffee or nice glass of Chianti but don’t come for the hot chocolate.  Caffe Caldesi, 118 Marylebone Lane, London £2.93
