The food and drinks here are beyond words. There's usually a line and it's well worth the wait. And, after you've tried the delicious food and drinks, check out their chocolate factory. Great place to learn more about the process and sample their chocolate bars.

I just don't get the reason for the attention that this place gets. Yes, the idea is great but there is really nothing great about it. The interior looked a little "tired" and the personnel looked bored and just going through the motions. The chocolate was good but way overpriced. Sorry.

Loved this place, it had great ambiance and a good dessert menu. My coffee was served in a mini french press and was some of the best I ever had. I also love their green and "fair wage" practices.

Can't believe I waited in line for 20 minutes, always a line, for chocolate but it was well worth the time. Fabulous chocolate and desserts in a laid back atmosphere. Great place to visit with friends and chat with locals while in line.

There was a line that moved quickly. The truffles were amazing, and the liquid chocolate was to die for.

The pastries were not as good as I had been led to believe. It was dark and crowded. It was expensive for what you got.

I would LOVE to write a review. Man. That'd be AWESOME! However, right before noon on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, my wife and I entered the shop. ONE and only one customer was in front of us. There were FOUR (4) employees behind the counter. One guy was helping a lady who then proceeded to ask for directions to some... More
