Had hot chocolate with carrot cake; both delicious as all deserts appeared to be with nice size portions. Plenty of seating upstairs for a relaxing end to the evening. Usually a line outside but only a 15 minute wait at most.

We stood in line in the rain. It was a long wait in line to get to the counter to order. There were a lot of rambunctious kids and it is pretty loud. The ambiance was like being at a McDonald's playground. They did have almond milk as an option for the hot chocolate (but it is not listed on... More

Go here drink chocolate, eat chocolate, try a dessert, take some to go ! You will not be disappointed ! If there is a line ( and there probably will be ) don't be discouraged, the staff keeps it moving, sometimes with samples and it's worth the wait - the best dark chocolate sorbet and flour less cake, and the...

The variety of chocolate items on the menu was astounding. The liquid truffles and the assortment of traditional truffles were particularly good.

We went here based upon the reviews we had read. The chocolate we had was excellent, worth the trip to get it again. However we order 2 different brownies and 1 macron and all of them were awful. Brownies tasted like the batter hadn't been mixed completely. The line was long but it does move quickly.

There will be a line, and yes you should wait. First of all it doesn't take that long, and second of all, you'll won't be disappointed. Tried the macaroon- delish but fairly standard; the pecan tart- flaky crust and just the right amount of sweetness to filling, but the lay-down-to-die -for dessert for me is the chocolate mousse, served in...

I have been here several times and I also get something chocolate but this time I was tempted by something else. Maple and bacon ice cream. It was almost sinful. The only way it could have been better was on a warm waffle. I should have brought some home and had it for breakfast.I hope its not on the menu... More

I enjoyed the creme brulee, which was excellent. It was unusual in that the creme was actually chocolate. There is seating upstairs, which you don't realize when you walk in. The chocolate truffles I bought to take home were excellent.
