Great chocolate

If you love chocolate this is a place for you to visit. Stopped by after seeing the huge sign out advertising the worlds greatest chocolate store and we weren't disappointed.

Our club - the Council Oak Woodcarvers - meets here every other Saturday morning for open carving in the Rockne Room from 8:30am to Noon. (If you see us - COME ON IN - we love showing off our carvings!) We absolutely love meeting here - many of us eat breakfast while we are here (the bagels with eggs and... More

Stopped for lunch. As long as this restaurant has been in business, you would think everything would run smoothly. Not so. Our soup was lukewarm, asked them to reheat the soup, took at least 5 minutes. They couldn't get anyone's order correct. Supervisor should have been helping the kids at the beginning of the ordering process rather than standing behind... More

Unique restaurant in a candy shop! Great ham and cheese sandwich ( huge!) and lobster bisque. Price was very reasonable and the counter staff was very friendly and helpful. Friends bought a variety of sweet treats and none disappointed! If you're in South Bend, hang out at this place. You won't be disappointed!

I have always loved South Bend Chocolate Company chocolate, but their restaurant is a disappointment. The food is ridiculously overpriced, and not very good. Avoid the restaurant, and go there for the candy and the chocolate

I was in South Bend for a conference over the weekend and stopped by the Chocolate Café nearly every night. They had live music and would wheel out a little bar which had beer and wine available. The beer selection was pretty good with several different craft brews available. The wine pours by the young lady at the bar were... More

Had a glutinous dinner, so this was the perfect stop afterwards. Every kind of sweet under the sun is in this place, which has at least 6 different service areas ranging from candy shop to grill and barista station. I had a slice of cake, along with some local cream ale. Very good.

Mid morning, close to noon actually. Stopped in SB for some errands and decided to go in for a coffee. Well, we finished up having ourselves great sandwiches (Grilled Rueben highly recommended) and a great time. Wild variety of soft drinks. Obviously we did not leave without desert. The chocolates are simply exquisite. Definitely going back.

I was thinking it was a little gourmet chocolate shop like a Godiva, but actually it's much more than that inside. It's got a separate area for coffee, chocolates and candy and then another place for you to sit after you get your ice cream. There are seating areas inside and out so that depends on what works for you.... More

We often go here for lunch on Sunday's. Kids eat free with an adult meal purchase! I have tried many of their soups and coffees. My kids usually get PB &J or grilled cheese sandwiches. The best part is when they're done eating there is a play area right there!
