People have all sorts of food passions....who knew hot chocolate could inspire such dedication and a perfect little place to learn and indulge yourself? Just the ticket to snuggle up with a big bowl of your chosen brew on a miserable winters day.

We go to knoops all the time, and often drive into Rye just to visit. I've never found anywhere that makes hot chocolate and milkshakes this good. Staff and owner are also excellent, highly recommended.
