Lofi isn’t just a popular music genre, it’s also a happenin’ cafe in Paradise! Stop by Lofi Cafe for a classic cup o’ Joe, or try one of their funky creations, like a Cranberry Snow (a blended holiday drink) or a Butternut White Mocha.

Ice Rink

What better way to spend an afternoon than drinking a hot cup of cocoa in between skate sessions? Treat yourself to a fun (and warm) day on the ice at Paradise Ice Rink.

Cozy Diner Bar And Grill

There’s no better place to get, well, cozy than at the Cozy Diner Bar and Grill! Order a giant hot chocolate (yes, the word “giant” is part of its name) with whipped cream (of course!), or a toasty mug of coffee. Pro tip: the French vanilla or mocha cappuccinos are delicious!

Barney O’Rourke’s

Grab a drink and a bite at Barney’s. They’re known for their hamburgers, but serve steaming hot drinks as well – perfect after a crisp day out on the town.


When in doubt, there’s always Starbucks! With fun seasonal drinks like Iced Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Lattes and Peppermint Mochas, it’s a great place to get into the holiday spirit.

Dutch Bros

If you’re looking for a superb cup of coffee on the go, Dutch Bros has you covered! Their holiday specials have fun names like Hot Sweater Weather Chai and Holly Jolly Rebel. If you’re not feeling too adventurous, just stick to their tried-and-true classics: the Kicker and the Caramelizer are two fan favorites.

Lynn’s Coffee & Crepes

Head to Lynn’s to get your coffee and crepes fix! Whether you’re in the mood for something sweet or savory, Lynn’s has it all! Grab a warm Caramel Macchiato or hot tea (like their Chai Tea Latte) if you’re not in the mood for coffee. And of course, a crepe!

Nic’s is the perfect place for a cup of hot coffee and soup, accompanied by a toasted panini. Try the French Toast Breakfast Panini for an explosion of salty and sweet flavors that can’t be beat, or the Pastrami Reuben Panini for a more classic sandwich. Yum!

Mad Natters Donuts

Pair a super soft, just-out-of-the-oven donut with a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate at Mad Natters. Their heart-shaped donuts are almost too cute to eat. Try one of their Maddy’s (a donut ham sandwich) for something truly unique!

Debbie’s Restaurant

Debbie’s is your answer for nostalgic diner fare. This family-owned restaurant is known for their breakfast classics, best paired with a mug of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.

Road Roasters

Prefer your brews to go? Pick up a bag of “Bah Humbug” Holiday blend or “Road Zombie” beans from Road Roaster Coffee Company, sold at Ace Hardware on Clark.

These are just a few places to get your hot cocoa on, so be sure to check them out this season!
