Hot chocolate is a drink that can reduce levels of cholesterol and lower blood pressure; it is a signature of the winter season. Paired with various flavors that range from mint to marshmallows, we narrowed down the best spots around Cairo for that perfect cup of hot chocolate that will warm you up.
With the slogan “you know the deal when the chocolate is real,” Chouchou has been an unstoppable force in the field of crafting vibrant and diverse éclair flavors. Apart from éclairs, Chouchou is killing it with its authentic French hot chocolate recipe. It’s a must-try as it is made with pure Valrhona Guanaja Chocolate (a dark chocolate couverture from French chocolate makers Valrhona). If you’re not a big fan of dark chocolate, however, and prefer white chocolate more, then Chouchou got you covered with the Valrhona Ivoire white hot chocolate version. Currently, you can find Chouchou at Arkan Plaza, Phase 2, Gate B, at Sheikh Zayed City.
Whether it’s lunch, dinner, or breakfast, Ovio provides a unique selection of fresh bread, delicious patisserie, and flavorsome dishes that are inspired by their European heritage. They have a few branches in Cairo; Maadi, CFC Mall in New Cairo, and Galleria40 in Sheikh Zayed City. They also have two other branches in Marassi Marina and Diplo (both on the North Coast.) Ovio’s Belgian hot chocolate hot is definitely delectable. You can even enjoy it with their signature Viennese cakes.
Located in Arkan Plaza 2, Koffee Kulture (KK) is one of the most prominent breakfast and brunch spots in Cairo. They offer a new approach to hot chocolate that no other place has done before.

It’s definitely a new approach and you can try it now to satisfy your chocolate cravings.

Vasko is an incredible genius when it comes to serving hot chocolate, with locations in CFC Mall, Point 90 Mall, Cloud 9 Mall, Mall of Arabia on the 6th of October, and Ramses St. in El-Korba. Even better, you can pair their famous chocolate cookies with one of their superb hot chocolate; a blend that is both crunchy and flavorful.
