Just touring the city and stopped for hot cocoa. If you dont stop here then you are a fool. YUM! We took advantage of filling up on a half pound of chocolate for our trip home.

A family tradition during the holiday season is to grab a hot chocolate & take a carriage ride. The two are across the street from one another. It's always such a delectable treat. This year my silly son opted out of his hot chocolate and...More

We ended our day by stopping at Ghirardelli! Talk about ooey gooey dessert! Every dish is huge! It's good to share! It was very crowded and on a rainy/snowy cold day, that's not the best situation as the seating is limited, and you don't want...More

Some of the worst service I have had at a coffee/ice cream place. There were 6 ppl working and it took us 15 minutes to get 2 small Carmel lattes and they made the wrong drinks so we had to wait another 10 for them...More

We visited several times during this holiday season, and enjoyed the hot chocolate as well as the Muir Woods ice cream sundae. The hot fudge in the sundae is the main event and never disappoints, though I wish there was more of it! The hot...More

Tell your kids that if they behave you'll take them here. Mom and Dad will also greatly enjoy their extensive menu of sinful desserts!

Wonderful quality ice cream in the heart of Chicago. I went to the one by the Wrigley building...not advertised but fell upon by chance. You just cant say enough of the quality they put in their product. Always a stop now when I am there

We recently visited this establishment to purchase chocolates as gifts. When we entered, a nice young sales associate welcomed us (party of 5), and offered us chocolate samples. As we browsed, someone else entered and the manger spoke in a loud and sharp tone to...More

Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan
Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent
Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago
River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out
neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the
place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with
shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and
dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
