It's good environment and location for meeting with girlfriends for business or pleasure. However, I've been going to the Chocolate Cafe so much now that I could use something new in their menu.

Yes this restaurant has many varieties of chocolate deserts and drinks, but it also serves terrific light lunch. My favorites are the quiches, varying daily. They also have sophisticated salads, and roaring soup specials. Small and intimate particularly at lunch. At night it is busier, and more people go for desert.

Ordered German Chocolate cake and it was a huge slice ($8) but it was quite dry. I had hot tea (which was lukewarm in a cold cup) and several glasses of water to wash it down. I was a bit disappointed and will continue my quest for yummy dessert.

My husband and I went to The Chocolate Café for dessert after a romantic dinner. We didn't have reservations, but we were seated in about 5 minutes. I ordered the ultimate chocolate cake. It is huge- enough for 3 people at the end of a meal. It is fabulous if not served a little chilly for my taste. My husband... More

I have had their desserts and coffee, both are exceptionally good. I would go there again, and I highly recommend it. I have also bought their whole deserts (you need to place an order 24 hours in advance) and they are high quality too. I have only had lunch there once (a panini) it was OK, but the deserts are...

My daughter and I were lucky enough to get in without reservations. Judging from how busy this tiny place is, that doesn't always happen. The desserts were scrumptious and our cappuccinos were really well made. I definitely would return and highly recommend that all chocolate lovers pay them a visit.

every dessert is simply scrumptous! Their key lime pie is possibly the best I have had outside of Florida. The carrot cake and chocolate lava cake were great too. Gets very noisy when full, better to come for lunch or afternoons. very nice restaurant.

We visited this (very) small restaurant with family while in town for CSU graduation. We enjoyed the desserts and wine recommended by the server. It is a family friendly place that is relaxed, yet very nice, appropriate for a special date or celebration. The gluten-free options were a nice surprise.
