Regardless whether you prefer the classic cocoa with whipped cream, homemade hot chocolate or one of the more adventurous varieties, there is something for everybody.

Every season has its charm and visiting Odense on a cold day can easily be a treat, especially for those of us that love hot chocolate. There is nothing cosier than sitting indoors at a “hyggelig” café, with a big cup of hot cocoa to enjoy time with family and friends. So it doesn't matter if you seek a classical hot cocoa with whipped cream, homemade hot cocoa or an entirely different third option, there is something for every taste. 

In Nørregade, close to H.C. Andersen's House and the old town, you'll find Ice café Nørregade. Here, you can warm up with a delicious, classic hot chocolate with either marshmallows or whipped cream.

At Cafe Kræz, right in the middle of one of the city's bustling squares, you can also find a classic hot chocolate with whipped cream. Here, you can also get a Lumumba, where the hot chocolate is accompanied by cognac.

If the craving for hot chocolate arises while you're strolling around the Brandts area, Mortens Chocolades is a must-visit. Mortens' hot chocolate has been awarded as the best hot chocolate in the city, among other accolades.

Papas Papbar is the perfect place if you have plenty of time. In addition to a fantastic cup of hot chocolate, they have over 600 different board games you can play while sitting in the café.

For a vegan alternative, Café Kosmos has you covered. They serve a good cup of hot cocoa with coconut whipped cream on top.

Winther's coffee and The, located at the corner of Vestergade and Kongensgade, offers the monthly cocoa selection, which you can purchase either in-store or at the To-Go window on Kongensgade.

In Jernbanegade, you'll find Sirup's, a cozy coffee and wine bar. Here, you can also enjoy a decent cup of hot cocoa with or without whipped cream, or a Lumumba made with Martell VS Cognac.
