Fantastic hot chocolate, excellent candies

Equal to Angelina's in Paris, this place has the best hot chocolate I've ever had! Their chocolates are also superb. Visiting here is well worth it.

I asked for a 25 piece sample box so that i could try many of what they had to offer and when i opened it up, there were so many duplicates it was saddening. I had hoped that the ganaches would be something to inspire awe after reading the reviews, this was not so. The flavors were a bit flat,... More

This shop in the DUMBO neighbourhood of New York was part of our Brooklyn Bridge tour. The chocolate bars are lovely and we all enjoyed the different varieties, my favourite was Java Junkie. My only warning is the special chocolate selection works out very expensive, $36 for a selection of 12, avoid.

Hidden gem. Great selection of chocolate. These stuff a lot of options into a very small space. There is some side sitting and a few small chairs in the window. Chocolate bark (good price), truffles (awesome, but pricy) and even cookies were rapidly consumed in our hotel that same night. Had to go back to get some truffles to bring... More

It was raining "cats and dogs", cold and damp day with no sun. We stumbled on this small and warm inviting chocolate site and will be a return customer for years. We had hot chocolate and sat in a window area. We added cookies and the atmosphere was electric. I could have stayed all evening.

We came here as part of a tour and as it was freezing, decided to indulge in the hot chocolate, it was absolutely delicious! We also bought some chocolate chip cookies, which were very nice but not outstanding. Worth walking the Brooklyn Bridge just to enjoy the hot chocolate; rich, creamy and not too sweet!

I love going to Jacques Torres on a cold day. Perfect for NYC. The classic hot chocolate is my favorite but the also have the "wicked" hot chocolate that is spicy. Just accross the street you'll find a great bakery called Almondine that makes the best croissants in the city.

Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate matched with very friendly service, selection, and unique offerings. Try the chocolate covered cereals!

First off. Let me say that I am VERY particular a out my chocolates. I live in CT but can only eat chocolates purchased from good chocolatiers, in my case in NYC. An $80 box of chocolates, while an indulgence, is somewhat of a necessity during the colder months of the year. Who wants to eat chocolates in summer? That... More

We were tired and chilled after walking in the Brooklyn Bridge and stopped by for a cookie and hit chocolate. Had the wicked hot chocolate which was reasonably priced, so rich, and the ancho pepper and spices were deep and warming but not burning. We shared one which hit the spot, but it was so rich we couldn't finish. Got... More
