If you are in the area and are able to call to Coco Blacks for coffee and cake do it ! The selection of cakes and variety is the best I've seen! I wish I could take this shop back to Lancashire. The chilli chocolate cake was delicious. I didn't taste the handmade chocolates and it was too hot to... More

This is a must-visit in Peebles! The tastiest most indulgent cakes have tasted in a long time. Coffee, unfortunately, was a bit disappointing.

It was welcoming with a pleasant atmosphere and the service was good and the squares of luscious high caloried cake to accompany the hot chocolate were to die for and we hope to return!

We go to Cocoa Black every time we are in Peebles and I am usually very pleased. On this occasion I was a little disappointed. The tea/coffee were good but the cake was not up to scratch. I had an almond and peach tart which didn't taste particularly good and the pastry was hard not crisp. We found the price... More

We were recommended to this place as having the best coffee in Peebles - this was true but as a place to sit and enjoy the coffee it was very disappointing. The seating area had no atmosphere - basic tables and chairs with a sofa in the corner. More of a chocolate shop than a café but it could be... More

The best selection of cakes and hot drinks. The only problems were finding a table in this busy little place, then making a decision at the counter! Too many cakes and chocolates to choose from, so we returned at least 3 times! Bring your wallet!
