L.A Burdick Chocolate Cafe

While exploring the Gramercy/Flatiron neighborhoods over the weekend, my sister and I happened upon the most adorable little chocolate shop and cafe a little ways over from Gramercy Park, called L.A. Burdick. We were in the mood to stop and rest for a bit, so we popped in and helped ourselves to their Iced Hot Chocolate (SO decadent), and a few pieces of handmade chocolates. It was delicious and such a lovely little treat! The shop was adorable and charming, with a homey, slightly shabby-chic vibe. It was quiet, not crowded, and just had a great vibe, almost like a cute gift shop you would find in a small town in Vermont or something (kind of a weird description, but that was how it felt!) You can buy chocolate bars, cocoa powder, tea, and more, or sit yourself down and enjoy a chocolately drink, a coffee, or one of their gorgeous pastries. I definitely recommend stopping in if you ever find yourself in the area, and I can’t wait to go back. Stumbling upon adorable little spots like this reminds me why I love this city so much!

    You had me a "chocolate cafe" haha! This sounds like a great place…my kind of place. I will have to remember this for the next time I take a trip to NY.

    This is one of my favorite coffee/chocolate places in NYC! We'll have to go together.

    You are spot on in your description. The original L.A. Burdick's is in Walpole, NH…a stone's throw across the Connecticutt River from Vermont!

    I love L.A. Burdick! FYI if you're ever in Boston there is one in the Back Bay and another in Cambridge! It's so great to sit and sip a hot chocolate during a snow storm!

    They need to have one in Chicago as well! I used to go there when I was in Cambridge MA.
