Live music in the evening

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... read 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!

The chocolate is good; especially, the chocolate covered Oreos. They are yummy. The sandwiches are excellent. They are freshly made. They have a huge selection of sandwiches. The soup is also terrific. The atmosphere is fun and relaxing. A very enjoyable place.

Lots of unique chocolate treats to eat here. Everything is a little more expensive in the store but they have a decent selection of chocolate items to buy. Excellent hours of operation.

As a long-time South Bend/Notre Dame resident, there is no better place for coffee, a bagel and leisurely conversation. For lunch: the best salads in South Bend.

Had a horrible latte, even with an extra shot there was no flavor and the Americano was transparent. Also tried a cinnamon bun. Old and dry, the instant bake kind. Heard they had a good Rueben. There must be a better coffee place in town. It is big and fancy, if you like that sort of thing.
