YYC Hot Chocolate Fest is Back!

The 11th annual YYC Hot Chocolate Fest is starting February 1 and running for the month of February. There are a record 85 cafes, restaurants and chocolatiers competing for the awards of YYC’s Best Hot Chocolate, Best Spirited Hot Chocolate and special Cup That Runneth Over Award – and when you visit The Westley, you can try two of the hot chocolates in this friendly competition supporting Calgary Meals on Wheels!

Don’t forget to head over to to vote for your favourites!


Proper French chocolate serves as a base for this velvety but not heavy Hot Chocolate! T2722’s chocolatier also handcrafted an out of this world chocolate spoon, so unique you might get more than just chocolate! Vote for T2722!


Mexican hot chocolate with house made vanilla bean pistachio syrup, topped with a decadent marshmallow whipped cream! Covered in a pistachio crumble and served with a gluten-free pistachio cookie on the side.

Available as a delightful non-alcoholic treat… but we all know winter in Calgary is long, and many of us could use a little extra spirit to get us through. We add a splash of rum and green chartreuse to pull it all together. Vote for Fonda Fora!

We’re looking forward to seeing you in February (with a hot chocolate in each hand)!
