You know how Disneyland is called "The Happiest Place on Earth"? Well, I call the Chocolate Bar the happiest place in Houston. Either location. Almost always good service (though I have at times been standing in front of the ice cream counter like an idiot waiting for service...on a few occasions). Pace yourself. I usually get ice cream, but there... More

This is a fancy shmancy chocolate bar with lots of hand-dipped chocolates, ice cream, and cakes, pies and cheesecakes of many varieties. We almost got the chocolate covered twinkie, but we resisted (because it was $4.95). I think the best thing we got was a chocolate dipped moon pie (also $4.95). Probably not something I'd rush back to.

Lemon...yes, the lemon velvet ice cream is fabulous. Lots of white chocolate and lemon zest...it is the best. The store is a candy delight.

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
