Chocolate heaven absolutely!

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... read 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

One visit will never be enough. This little place specialises in boutique chocolate and sources its own chocolate beans and oversees all aspects of production. Their passion is amazing and there is something from everyone, including hot chocolates and ice-cream. It can get busy, but its so good its not surprising. You can also do chocolate tasting courses and if... More

Although the place was too packed to have my hot chocolate there, I did have one to go, which, to be fair, was one of the best hot chocolates (I went for the dark chocolate variety) I have ever had. I also bought some hot-chocolate mixes for friends, and so far they've loved them. The place is also very cozy,... More

We have the pleasure of visiting Edinburgh twice a year and one of our delights whilst there is to spend some time enjoying the excellent chocolate products which The Chocolate Tree so justly specialises in. However this year we were a fraction disappointed in the fact that the seating has not improved rather been reduced and that it is now... More

The chocolate is small place, makes you feel close to other people. It’s filled with a wonderful warm fragrance of chocolate and the staff is one of the nicest people you can find. Above all, the hot chocolate is sublime. You can get a big serving of hot chocolate in a blue painted ceramic cup and it is one of... More
