Café mochas, also known as mocha lattes, are just like regular lattes, but with chocolate added. Pretty much every coffeehouse in Boston has them, but who makes the best?

Diesel Cafe in Davis Square makes one of the best mocha lattes that pollystyrene has tried—and it tastes just like the version at Pavement Coffeehouse‘s two locations.

RJ Gourmet in East Cambridge is Matt H‘s pick, mainly for the Mexican mocha. And EmmaFrances is partial to the café mochas at Toscanini’s. “They aren’t very sweet, which I like,” she says.

Thinking Cup‘s café mochas (pictured) are “well presented and not overly sweet,” says huuvola, and pollystyrene thinks that Voltage and Dwelltime might also be worth a try. One café mocha that didn’t make the mark was Crema Cafe‘s: “It was practically tasteless,” pollystyrene says. “[But] their brownies are fantastic.”
