Though some are so cocoa-obsessed that they insist on chocolate wedding rings and hot chocolate saunas, the majority of eaters are content to nap on white-chocolate cake-mattresses. Expand your chocolate palate with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of chocolate treats and more at Naked Chocolate Café, located on Walnut Street in Rittenhouse.
Naked Chocolate Café serves a myriad of house-made chocolate goodies, cupcakes, and refreshing drinks. Step to the counter and ogle artfully composed cupcakes such as the savory red velvet and spiced carrot cake ($2.50–$2.75). Those who ache to acquire decadent chocolate can simply order the café’s rich hot chocolate ($3.75–$6) or its refreshing frozen counterpart, which is topped with whipped cream and garnished with sprinkles ($4–$6). Or, fulfill a dream of having a computer in one’s noggin with the café’s computer-shaped chocolate molds ($4). A variety of other creatively shaped cocoa concoctions are also available on a daily changing basis.
Naked Chocolate Café’s hardwood floor and tidily arranged counter add to the shop’s tasteful, elegant atmosphere. Keep an eye on the shop’s Facebook page for special events, including musical performances from local artists and open-mic poetry on the first Monday of each month, when local poets congregate to read from Robert Frost’s The Jenga Block Not Taken.
Call at least 48 hours in advance for large specialty orders.

Here I can have a six course meal of really fine chocolate, with spicy Aztec sipping chocolate as my drink. Bliss. – JenniferR7279, Zagat > * A must-visit on cold winter days. I’ve had friends request shipments of the cocoa mix after moving away. Pure happiness in a cup. – StephanieT4906, Zagat
