Small cafe, good pastries and LOADS of chocolate!!

With so much choice, it's hard to decide which chocolates, which dessert, which pastry at this shop.... All high quality, would visit again in a heartbeat. We went early on a Saturday morning (before 10am) so it was only us and one other couple. We'd actually just been to another chocolate shop... read more

Chocolaterie Pompadour has very tasty and innovative chocolates - also VERY pricey chocolates. A box of 9 pieces will run you about 14 Euros. However, they are unique and you may never have the opportunity to taste such creations again. Try a few... I had the caramel chocolate torte and my mother had the baked apple tarte. Both were incredibly... More

We had caramel chocolate torte. Very nice deep caramel flavor. The lemon tart is so creamy and tasty. Very nice. The owner is so friendly and attentive. The macarons however are quite ordinary.

Great place to grab tea and pastries or chocolates. Not much seating, but worth the wait! You can also get items to go if you don't want to wait for a table. Just very charming and the pastries are delicious!

Just looking through the window makes your mouth water, BUT actually trying to pick one cake is enough to send your tastebuds to overdrive. Possibly the best Chocalaterie that i have experienced. If you have to walk miles to get there it will be worth every step. I promise you.

My boyfriend and I shared a little Raspberry cake. The mousse tasted of pure fresh raspberries surrounded with a thin layer of sponge, fresh raspberries on the top. We both agreed this was the best cake we ever had. I suggest you try a fruity cake, as my chocolate mousse was a bit heavy. Chocolaterie Pompadour located in the heart... More

Desserts and cakes are delicious. There is a good selection of tea and coffee, and the atmosphere is very quiet. Recommended if you want to spend a cosy moment in a nice place.

Get some chocolates in this lucious establishment, or better yet: go to the tearoom in the back and order a big pot of tea and a couple of wonderful cakes from the showcase in front, and take your time enjoying it. (I love the chocolate merengue!). It's like stepping back in time, enjoying luxurious sweets in the 17th century, very... More

If you're going here just for the chocolate, it is perfect. The desserts look impeccable and taste fantastic. If you're eating in, the place is very cosy and relaxed so you should enjoy it. From where we were sitting, I could see them make coffee. I was interested in ordering a cappuccino, however as I watched them make other orders... More
