Had lovely late night chocolate delights here. Delicious hot chocolate drink which was like drinking a cup of melted chocolate. Beautiful display of the most tempting and mouth watering chocolates. A must visit. Lovely menu.

Hot chocolate and lavender macarons were delicious. The lavender flavour went very well with the hot chocolate. Also the mint hot chocolate with the salted caramel macarons are also recommended.

I love hot chocolate but this hot chocolate is so far better than any I have ever tasted. A deep chocolate flavor with no bitterness and very creamy. Mine had the perfect chili heat - just enough to make your lips tingle but no overpowering chili flavor or heat. Not a hint of chalkiness. Just smooth! They make it from... More

After a dismal coffee from Hudson's we walked down the street to Ganache. A delicious hot chocolate was served, and we bought some other yummies too.

Boutique Chocolatier and Cafe. Great to browse and buy speciality chocolates, or stop for a drink at the cafe. A bit expensive, but treat yourself.

Ok...So I didn't have any chocolate. I only popped in for lunch which was good (not great) and reasonably priced. The reason I wanted to do a review was to send a message to the management. It's totally unacceptable to have coffee/chocolate/tea delivered to you with the waitresses HANDS holding the rim of the cup. For goodness sake - train... More

I survived my pregnancy with a daily dose of their speciality hot chocolate. Just the right density, texture and perfect amount of sweetness. Glides down your throat with a velvety smoothness that soothes all the stress away! Ummm.. I want one now!! :) It's basically a tiny chocolateria with some great chocolate based offerings. Love their cakes as well! Tiny... More
