Perhaps you prefer a hot chocolate from  while eating breakfast or bumping into locals over your vanilla chai latte at 

With a variety of places to grab a hot pick-me-up, Wilmington has you covered when you need to take the chill off with a warm drink. 

Here at Wilmington Patch we enjoy a steaming latte or chai tea as much as the rest of you. We want to know which hot drinks in town hit-the-spot, and we need your help.

Post a comment here, letting us know what your favorite hot beverage is and where you get it. Simply leave the name of the place and drink if you choose, or, give us a little more, and share all the juicy details.

  • Since we have such a selection here in town, and it's so tough to choose one favorite, you may submit up to three eligible posts.
  • We’ll randomly select  a winner on March 11. The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to his or her favorite place.
  • Entries are due by midnight on March 10.
  • Be sure to follow all our contest giveaway rules, which can be found .

There are dozens of great places to snag something warm to drink — start taste-testing now.

On the go I enjoy a caramel apple spice with whip cream from Starbucks. At home I make apple cider (from powder mix sold at market basket) and then add whip cream and caramel!

When I need an escape, I indulge in a grande non-fat white chocolate mocha (no whip) from Starbucks. It seems to make everything right, at least until the cup is empty. :)
