Emporium.....this word suggests something amazing, in reality it is a shop selling chocolate in many forms (sheep poo, thanks for looking after....etc) with a small tea room attached which consisted of four tables with four chairs around each. The information was provided by reading the many articles on the walls and a small tv the size of a small tablet... More

This place is so bad in a good sense of the word. A chocolate lovers paradise. Choc-full (excuse the pun) of hand-made goodies. If you are a lover of all things chocolate this is the place to go if you are in Ilfracombe. I found myself get more and more carried away with the things for sale. I am afraid... More

We was wanting a cup of tea when we found this cafe in the back of a chocolate shop run by a lovely husband and wife team. We had a pot of tea in the museum of chocolate in the rear of the shop. The tea was served up in chocolate advertising mugs for two and a small complimentary bowl... More

Lovely little shop! A breath of fresh air on what was otherwise a run down/disappointing high street. The guy serving was friendly & welcoming. Sells lots of personalised & handmade chocolates perfect for gifts to take home as thank you tokens. Miles better than the pre packed stuff, & well worth a look.

Revisited the shop and there is still a fabulous selection of chocolates to see and buy. If you a present with a unique and personal twist I would recommend a visit.

I've never been in a chocolate shop like it - aswell as all the lovely chocolate (much of it seaside themed - mini crabs, mini seashorses etc) there is a whole area dedicated to the display of chocolate paraphernalia. The shop makes it's own chocolate and you can watch this being done through a window into the kitchen area. Really... More

Visited here while on Holiday with my family. The little museum at back was ok and gave some information. Bought some shortbread which was reasonable also bought some chocolate pony heads which at £2.99 for 3 was expensive. Overall a nice shop to pop in and have a look.

Nice little shop with chocolate exhibition at the back & window thru into chocolate workshop. We enjoyed watching the lady making the chocolate & the watching the video on the small tv screen. Great selection of chocolate to buy in the shop(lots handmade on the premises). Other reviewers have criticised the chocolate for sale being over priced. Well, it's not... More

Got all geared up thinking I was got t see some working chocolate shop and museum. One bloke behind counter and small display of old quality street tins and other stuff round the back. No interest to me or my kids managed all of round 4 mins. If you want to see cholesterol being made visit Belgium or Cadbury world.
