Where to Find the Best Hot Chocolate in Branson

With colder weather comes warmer drinks, holiday nostalgia and a constant craving for all things sugar and Christmas treats! It’s here, folks. It’s that time of the year to bring back the classic, the all-time favorite, the family staple…Hot Chocolate! There’s nothing better than a warm cup of hot cocoa in your hands topped with marshmallows as you walk along the Branson Landing, drive through Branson’s Christmas lights, or just cozy up to a fire at home. Here in Branson, you deserve to experience everything good this Christmas season. To help, we’re providing you with a list of the BEST places to find hot chocolate in town this season. Bundle on up, grab your hot cocoa, and explore all that Branson has to offer during the Christmas season!

1. Expresso

With Hot Chocolate on the menu all year-round, Expresso’s drive-thru in the middle of the Branson 76 strip is ready to fuel the rest of your day in Branson! Available in white, milk and dark chocolate, you can make the hot chocolate exactly to your liking. And make sure you don’t miss out on their specialty lattes, holiday drinks, and amazing treats like Thunder Muffins, Protein Pancakes, and more!

2. Sugar Leaf Coffee & Espresso

Located in the Grand Village shops, Sugar Leaf Bakery & Cafe has extended their shop and gives you…Sugar Leaf Coffee & Espresso! Decorated as the holidays change, Sugar Leaf changes up their menu year-round to grant you the best holiday-themed drinks, too! But don’t worry – they always have your classic hot chocolate on hand – with a GIANT marshmallow on top! Make sure you keep the lid off if you get your drink to-go so you can take in the spectacle that their giant marshmallows are. It really is the perfect place to take a break during your shopping in Grand Village, or to get you in the Christmas spirit with a hot chocolate before you stop into Kringle’s and do all your shopping for Christmas decorations!

3. Starbucks

We know everyone knows about Starbucks, but you can’t deny that their sugar-packed hot chocolate will give you the pep in your step that you need to explore downtown Branson, the Branson Landing, or even take a ride on the Branson Scenic Railway!

4. Sweet Bay Coffee Co

The perfect place to stop for a pick-me-up during all of your holiday shopping on the Branson Landing is Sweet Bay Coffee Co! They have everything from black coffee to lattes, signature mochas to Red Bull smoothies, and breakfast croissants to cookies! With something for everyone and conveniently located, this stop is a must-visit on your trip to the Landing!

5. White River Coffee Company

A little out of the town limits of Branson, White River Coffee Company in Rockaway Beach is the perfect place to get out of the busyness of the 76 Branson Strip and enjoy the serenity of the Ozarks. With specialty drinks, homemade paninis, delightful pastries and the perfect patio to enjoy the weather, this is the perfect place to take a break and enjoy good conversation with the friends and family you came to Branson with.

There may not always be singing waiters and rotating train chairs, but we can guarantee that Branson’s hot chocolate options will have you just as happy as the kiddos on the Polar Express. See you soon!
