Special. That’s the first word that comes to mind when we think about the hot chocolate from this West Village cafe. From the toasted marshmallow that slowly melts with every sip to the deep, rich chocolate that carries it, this is the best, classic cup of hot chocolate in the city. Even if you usually order your hot beverages in a small cup, this drink will make you want to order an XXL. But since this isn’t 7-Eleven, you’ll have to settle for the large and return for another cup sometime in the future.
While the soft serve itself at Mah Ze Dahr is definitely good, the toppings and cones set this place apart (the flavors change every few weeks, and might include things like espresso chip and vanilla). The housemade waffle cone is thin but never gets soggy, and the toppings, like broken pieces of their chewy, salty chocolate chip cookies, are so tasty you’ll want to ask for a separate cup of them on the side. Don’t do that - just get a whole cookie instead.
