Best Hot Chocolate Ever!

I read the reviews on this venue before and needed to experience it for myself. I wasn't disappointed! The hot chocolate served here has got nothing to do with hot chocolate as I experienced it before. If you like to compare it with coffee, this is like the Espresso of chocolate. I would recommend... read more

We went last week there (only because of the good reviews here) to have a dessert. The atmosphere inside is everything, but nice. We were the only customers and when we entered everybody was so busy to acknowledge us. The dessert was ok, but the table was dirty and there were these small flies all around (we all know why...

The centre of Potsdam is very touristy and cute with a lot of restaurants behind the Brandenburg Gate (yes, they have one here too) and down the long, rifle barrel-straight main street - Brandenburgerstrasse - to the Church of Saints Peter and Paul. There's also a tourist information centre where I asked one of the ladies for a lunch recommendation.... More

During a summer trip we stopped here for a coffee and some hot chocolate. The hot chocolate was a pure chocolate drink and extremely rich. A very nice drink indeed. The location was also very nice being at the centre of the Dutch Quarter

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 made... 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.

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.
