Take a look at our favorite hot chocolate picks in Marietta, and share your favorites with us.
No matter how old I get, the holidays mean it's time for one thing—hot cocoa. And there is no shortage of this wintery beverage in Marietta! So who do you think serves the best hot chocolate in Marietta? 1. Le Cafe Crepe is my favorite place to get hot chocolate on Marietta Square. Chocolate Chaud (hot Coco heaven)—it earns its name. From the strong freshly-melted dark chocolate to the thick whip cream to the light sprinkle of cinnamon, it's the perfect drink to fight off the cold. While you're at Le Cafe Crepe, try one of their crepes. I suggest Crepe Californienne (vanilla custard with lemons and oranges), Crepe Brazillienne (chocolate mouse with raspberry sauce, cherries and almonds) and Crepe Francaise (cinnamon apples with butter and …

Plans are underway on a $770,000 renovation of Atherton Square, between the Marietta Visitors Bureau and Cool Beans near Marietta Square. When complete some of the improvements will include brick sidewalks leading to Atherton Square, replacing the Visitors Bureau's roof and making the restrooms in the Visitors Bureau handicapped accessible. Construction, which is funded by a federal grant through Georgia's Transportation Enhancement Program and city funds, is expected to begin in June 2014.

Tell us what is your drink of choice and where you start your mornings in Marietta.
I love coffee, understatement. I'm sure if I added up how much money I spend a year on coffee I would be horrified, so let's not go there. Here are the main stops for my morning beverages. Take a look and tell us where you go for your coffee. 1. Canvas Cafe: I wish I got to go to Canvas more often. When it comes to their vanilla latte, it's the perfect amounts of espresso and vanilla, leaving you with a satisfying start to the morning that's not too bitter and not too sweet. Take a closer look at Canvas with our review. 2. Cool Beans: I love Cool Beans' chai tea, but their vanilla lattes seem to come out under mixed. A sip of espresso (a bitter experience) followed by a sip of vanilla (too sweet). So if you're on the go take a moment …
