Sinful.. To die for!

I was in Potsdam with my wife for a couple of hours and I figured I'd treat her to a nice dessert. We headed to this place because I had heard good reviews of the place. We had a slice of cake and a chocolate drink. Both were to die for, especially the famous chocolate drink. The drink is... read more

They have so many different cakes and all of them looking just delicious that it's really hard to make a decision. The two cakes that we had were very good and tea was quiet good too. I strongly recommend to all to pass by this very special place.

This "House of Chocolate" is a mixture between a coffee place, a restaurant and a bakery. We came here to try their head liner, the traditional chocolate. This cannot be compared with ordinary chocolate milk as it contains 50grams of rich liquid chocolate, which runs for 4,50 euro. For an extra 1,40 euro you can add a shot of rum,... More

This is a delightful Restaurant with delicious gateaux. The staff were very helpful and we drank various coffees and apfel saft. Each person had something different to eat and the variety was great. It was raining so we ate inside but there was a lovely area where we could have sat if it had been fine.

We arrived just in time for breakfast. In the Dutch Quarter worth the walk. Lovely breakfast. I had the fitness breakfast my husband had a German breakfast.

Came there thanks TripAdvisor recommendation. Had a nice hot chocolate and a delicious cake. The only problem was that the service wasn't so good and the waitress didn't pay attention to us at all.

I have been to this restaurant about 5 times over the past 10 years in the Dutch quarter. It never fails to disappoint. Usually go in for the hot chocolate which is thick and pure luxury. This time I had a meal of ravioli with walnuts and grilled pears salad absolutely divine. Plentiful as well. Can't wait for my return... More

A leisurely walk up to the picturesque Dutch quarter, this cafe is gorgeous. The quaint atmosphere, white linen, old world style tea house is inviting. The house specialty of hot chocolate is decadent, the coffee good and the small brunch menu perfectly adequate. Lives up to its reputation

We took the Potsdam HOHO bus and they highly recommended this place. It was a walk away from the Potsdam Brandenburg Gate, but worth the trip. The tour lady said the hot chocolate is very good and served in a cup, but you have to drink it from the small spoon. She was right, the hot chocolate is basically pure... More

Located in the cute dutch quarter La Maison du Chocolat offers one of the best hot chocolates I have ever had. Served with cream you can enjoy you chocolate and/or cake outside on the terrace whilst enjoying the sun. The strawberry cake was a little bit dry, but also tasty. The chocolate was recommended on a sightseeing tour and it... More
