During the lunch and dinner hours, Richmond’s Origo Club is a fine-dining French restaurant boasting a chic aesthetic, an amazing wine list and mouthwatering dishes …  and an art gallery. But outside of those hours, it transforms into a classic French café with an impressive coffee program, delicate pastries.

Head to Origo Club, just down the road from the Richmond Olympic Oval (#110, 6888 River Road), to taste these delicious hot chocolates, or try your hand at making them yourselves at home.
