Awesome hot chocolate, plus organic and ethical stuff, s'all goo folks!

We got there for the chocolate, and stayed there for it AND for the nice and cosy atmosphere, the cool staff and some more great chocolate! They were nice to us as we had to stay for a while to have wi-fi and only got a drink (traveling on a budget, you know...), but I'll definitely go back there... read more

We (family with two kids) had ice cream, hot chocolate, tea and coffee here. Nice atmosphere, great ice cream (some suitable for vegans, too), good quality tea and nice hot chocolate and coffee. Friendly staff and clean bathroom (unisex as far as I remember). Really love to come back again.

Very good service, was helped to make a selection on hot drinks and dessert and was not disappointed. Chai hot chocolate served in a chunky mug, was delicious! This place is quite quirky and independent, and although it has little seating you can be lucky. The atmosphere is chilled out. The desserts are lovely. You'll end up spending at least... More

Simply the best hot chocolate I've ever had (and I've had a lot of them!). Left Edinburgh two years ago but always visit the Chocolate Tree when back home and it's still as good as ever. Good cakes and ice cream (or could be gelato - all delicious to me!).

Do you like chocolate? This is then a place you shouldn't miss. Whatever you desire, I am sure they can provide, at least when it comes to desserts. You can have just an espresso with a small chocolate truffle or you could go all in and stuff yourself with all kinds of lovely sweets and bitters. The only problem is... More

We ran into this place by luck and it was an experience to remember. It is an assault to all your senses, the chocolate is simply the best we have ever tried, the staff is very helpful and always willing to improve your experience, we would definitely recommend going there.

Do not miss out on such a chocolate treat when visiting Edinburgh. Anyone who reads my reviews will have gathered that I am very discerning chocoholic. None of this mass produced stuff for me. I make a point of seeking out chocolate heavens and this ticks all my boxes when I am in Edinburgh. The hot chocolate comes in various... More

What can I say? The hot chocolate is amazing, the cakes and chocolates to die for, staff are friendly, the shop itself is nicely presented and quirky, the ice cream is some of the best I've ever tasted and portions are generous. Plus all ingredients are ethically sourced. The Chocolate Tree ticks all my boxes. The only reason why I... More
