Delicious hot chocolate

We like to get bread bowls of soup and hot chocolate here every time we're in South Bend. This time, the bread bowl was dryer and less delicious than they used to be, but the soup itself was still good. The hot chocolate is always delicious, although for some reason it's slightly cheaper at the... read more

Drive by on evening, stopped for lunch next day. Good food at a reasonable price. Soup and sandwiches were very good. Live music during lunch is a nice touch. Loved all the decorations. Would have loved to bring the full sized Moose home for the grandkids!

My kids went without me so I could watch their little one, but, it was worth it, because they came back with some good things to say and some yummy chocolate to share!

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

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.

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.
