Christmas Hot Chocolates at Melba, The Savoy

The festive season is well and truly upon us and the cold is rolling in, so to keep us warm, Melba, The Savoy's gourmet counter on the Strand, is offering the perfect winter warmer. Its new selection of hot chocolates are devilishly decadent, featuring the innovative toppings the counter is famous for.

Customers can choose between traditional, Brazilian or festive hot chocolate before adding any combination of sumptuous toppings such as crushed macaroon, cookie dough and crunchy chocolate pearls. Drinks can be finished off with a drizzle of chocolate or salted caramel sauce for an additional luxurious touch - the perfect stop over on the way to skating at Somerset House, or as a break from shopping in Covent Garden.

Melba's usual 'to go' menu includes freshly baked breads, pastries, jarred breakfast, British sandwich classics, and a range of signature éclairs.

For those needing some Christmas gift inspiration, Melba also offers gift items from The Savoy such as beautifully crafted gingerbread houses and luxury stollen, as well as a festive selection of its signature eclairs. The eclairs are beautifully presented and are certainly a perfect pairing to the hot chocolate.
