Chocolate Lover’s Heaven

We have tried the four layer cakes – Aunt Etta’s, & Uncle Darl’s. Very decadent! Can’t go wrong with anything you order. Open late – check it out if you’re in the area.

We visited the Chocolate Bar hoping to try the chocolate pizza after seeing it featured on the Food Network. We were disappointed to find that you can't order a single serving size, you must order a full pizza for $25.00. Since a full chocolate pizza is way too much for two people. We left empty handed. What a disappointment! They... More

The back forest and Chocolate cake (Big size) was exceptionally fresh and delicious. TOO big that 3 persons can barely finish one piece. When you are in Houston, go for it and forget whatever diet you are following.

Great little shop, and wonderfully convenient if you're at one of the many restaurants or shops in the area. Their truffles are great but our favorites are the lemon and strawberry cream chocolates. Careful that you don't just take one of everything that loos good, because it'll get expensive quickly, but it's a great place to stop in for a... More

Ordered the Uncle Daryls cake for a special birthday online. I received a call confirming my order immediately. Cake was boxed up and carried to my car with great curtesy. If you love or even just like chocolate, your search is over. Your endorphins will kick in just from the smell. The penultimate chocolate cake anywhere.

This is our second or third visit. They had a pumpkin cheesecake that we anticipate or believe is likely to be seasonal, and is absolutely decadent. With the very first bite your script into a sensational rush of fantastical goodness. And they have chocolate.

The chocolate covered Pringles, Nutter Butters and Twinkies are my favorite. We come here often. Tried the milanos for the first time and they're pretty tasty.

My son recently moved to Houston and we just returned from a visit there. He mentioned that he had taken his girlfriend to The Chocolate Bar which kind of surprised me because he is not a big fan of sweets. Then he said his girlfriend loved it and I knew why he had gone there~smart man to keep his girl... More
