This place is the ultimate chocolate experience available. They have a little bit of everything sweet you could possibly want! It makes me think of a chocolate heaven if there ever was such a thing! Good luck even being able to Finish everything you order. From brownies, to cookies, to ice cream to cake, they have all your little heart... More

The actual place is super cute. The actual product I wasn't impressed with. We tried the Annie (aunt something maybe) chocolate cake, you can't miss it its HUGE and on top of the counter. But taste wise it wasn't moist at ALL....It was $10 for a slice and I only ate the frosting off of it, cake tasted like it... More

If you are looking for a chocolate fix in Houston this is your place! There is something for everyone. Divine and homemade. Ice cream, cakes, pies, chocolate dipped everything, cookies and brownies. We each had a slice of cake and were only able to eat 1/3 of our slides. I can't wait to have leftovers tonight!

Found this awesome place through my Trip Advisor app (thank you very much!) and it is simply unbelievable! Excellent selection and quality - this will now be a regular stop for me and I look forward to bringing friends here. The only drawback is the location and parking lot, which leaves a lot to be desired. Not much room and... More

It's an average chocolate shop. If you think this is good chocolate, you've missed out. Not that Houston has spectacular chocolate shops. My preference is Chocolate du Monde in Rice Village. Their European chocolates are unique and flavorful. Berings has decent chocolate too.

I feel this place is overpriced just because of where it is located. There is plenty of seating available and many chocolate items. If you have a big sweet tooth like me, I didn't find anything I liked here. Sad.

Yum! What an amazing place! Huge pieces of desserts, chocolate bars and candy of all kinds, and ice cream in many chocolate flavors along with the trendy location make this place great! A very fun place to drop by for dessert. We did for a late night snack. The place was very busy but served everyone quickly. Very good!

This is a fun place to shop for anything and everything chocolate. If you are seriously 'in the dog house', you will be able to find something to make up for just about anything you did. Lots of gift items--initials, hobbies, vocations, special interests, etc. If you can imagine it, it's coated with chocolate. Beware, it is expensive. Very limited... More
