When we lived in Philadelphia many years ago, we used to go to La Colombe’s first location in Center City, not only for the coffee but most importantly for the delicious pastries. For health reasons, we don’t drink coffee that often but for the old times sake, we went to one of the La Colombe locations in D.C. to see if we still like the coffee. Their cappuccino and latte were fine but the hot chocolate and mocha were not that chocolaty at all.

My husband liked the cappuccino.

It was light on chocolate and heavy on coffee.

It tasted a little stale.

My brother liked the latte better than my hot chocolate. That does not say much!

Hot Chocolate
Very bad and not chocolaty at all. It was too watered down!!
