I used to buy L.A. Burdick chocolates and hot chocolate mix a long time ago. I forgot that they were located in Cambridge, MA. So, while visiting Boston, we took an Uber from our hotel to L.A. Burdick for the old times’ sake. We stopped there twice. Once for breakfast and once for an afternoon treat. What we tried was good but on the sugary side.

Hot Chocolate
It was rich and chocolatey but a little on the sweet side.

Pain au Chocolat
It was good but not as flaky as we like.

Ham and Cheese Croissant
It tasted fine but a little dense.

It was a good aromatic chai.

Mocha Cake
This reminded me of triamisu. It had layers of coffee butter cream, dark chocolate ganache and cocoa powder.

Harvard Square
It was a chocolate cake with walnuts, chocolate ganache and a hint of rum. Very rich and comforting.
