We got frozen yogurt and had excellent service from the staff member working. The yogurt is flavorful-I had peanut butter mixed with praline. The toppings are varied but not overwhelming. The price was reasonable, too. Mine was a little over 4.50 for a delicious treat. I would definitely go back here.

After numerous strong reviews when here for dessert. Several ice cream options, sampled a few and felt they were average ($4 for single scoop, $5 for double). Cakes $6-10 slice so opted to check out their adjoining frozen yogurt shop. Sampled the cake batter and decided to go for it. $0.49 per ounce, several flavor options and toppings (including chocolates... More

This was my second visit to Southbend Chocolate at Monument Circle. The hot chocolate is amazing! It's comparable to Cafe Angelina in Paris! If you're in Indianapolis give it a try!

We stopped in for dessert and got a piece of the gigantic six-layer chocolate cake to share amongst 6 people (yes, that big). And it was excellent! Moist, chocolatey and clearly freshly made. Worth the calories!! Even the guy in our group who doesn't eat dessert loved it.

Went there twice during the weekend I was in Indy. The coffee is amazing, and they have many different chocolate things, from boxed chocolates to chocolate covered confectioneries. Service was wonderful as well.

Hot Chocolate is delicious!! Despite the frigid temperatures while I was there, I made it a point to walk from my hotel each day.

Ordered two dip cone. Ice cream tasted good, but the amount of ice cream served would not even pass for a single dip anywhere in the world. I was extremely disappointed.

Have been to Indianapolis on a number of occasions and always stop in for a cup of hot chocolate..no matter what time of year. It's the best hot chocolate I've had! They also have a great variety of designer chocolates, cookies and chocolate shakes. It's right on monument circle. Also is a short walk to the Capitol building, Lucas Oil... More

If you live in Indy or coming here to visit, DO NOT miss this place. Ask for their Ice cream and their special hot chocolate. Well, My wife and me both love their chocolate covered nuts too. I will try their cheese cake next time and will update this review then.
