It is hard to leave the house, but these warm drinks, especially those involving chocolate, are worth getting into the car and making the drive.
Let's make our first stop at Sweet Mimis Cafe & Bakery in Saratoga. The muffins, cookies, scones, and bars would be the main reason to stop here, at least for me, but bottomless coffee or hot cocoa are both great warm drinks to grab. Top with whipped cream, and I'll take two.

Are you looking for a hot latte or cappuccino? You can get traditional vanilla, mocha, or caramel latte at Pallate Cafe on Broadway in Saratoga. You can even get a regular cup of coffee or tea and sit and relax with friends.
One place you might be surprised to grab a warm drink, the Saratoga Winery. The Saratoga Winery & Tasting Room is known for its selection of handcrafted wines, but did you know about their drink specials? Try a Maple Hot Toddy or Boozy Hot Chocolate; both of those will keep you warm.
