Yummy cake, chocolate heaven

A cold and windy afternoon and what better way to spend it than eating cake and drinking tea and hot chocolate with a friend? II ordered the apple and cinnamon cake (the last slice), he had a slice of chocolate cake (but cant remember which one). Both were yummy, really moist with hidden bits of... read more

Went with my husband and son recently, we ordered churros and hot chocolates which were delicious (the hot chocolates were not over-sweet but sugar is available if you want it sweeter, and nice to have the choice of different types of hot chocolate). We also tried the salted caramel chocolate from behind the counter which was amazing, as was the... More

Cozy environment with nice decoration. Good coffee and varied selection of chocolate related products. Limited seating area though, so it is a miracle if you find a seat. Staff working there have a snobby and unwelcoming attitude. :(

If you want a delicious coffee accompanied by some great chocolate this is the place to go. In fact their hot chocolate is some of the best I have ever tasted. Chocolate heaven indeed. Their ice cream is wonderful too. Salted caramel is to die for. The chocolate sorbet is really rich with that lovely bitter chocolate taste. They have... More

We came here as I had heard they did a lovely vegan chocolate cake, and I wasn't disappointed. A good selection of cake, very nice coffee and chocolates to take away. I would definitely recommend this place!

First up, the chocoloate tree lives up to the promise of its name...they have rich cholocate tart, slightly less rich chcocolate cake, a whole selection of rich, thick hot chocolate, chocolate for sale and much more...all delicious and fairly priced. All the products appear to be organic, and the vibe is quaint and friendly. It is a little small, and... More

I love the hot chocolate here. It is always nice and a very generous portion :) I like their "homemade " spreads and the variety of chocolate bars you could get. I also like the churros but I am quite disappointed it doesn't come with the melted chocolate dip. The staff have always been friendly and happy to explain.
