Wish I'd been hungrier because their menu is much more extensive than just chocolate and gelato! As it was, the gelato was fantastic! Great place to pop in for a meal or snack. My husband and I approve.

Crepes, gelato and sorbets were out of this world! Had a banana, walnut, caramel crepe which was excellent but a little too much caramel (sugar overload!) The selection and display are overwhelming. It is hard to choose what to get so I suggest you go there often and try as much as you can!

Don't miss it! This started as my local coffee shop in the morning on my walk to the convention center each day but it became my favorite. Great coffee, better tea, phenomenal gelato and other desserts and don't miss the bruschette or their Pears & Gruyere salad...Awesome!!!

This is one of not too many gelateria around. The ice cream is beautifully displayed in the wave style like gelato is displayed in Italy. The many choices are mostly creamy and chocolatey ones. More fruit based ones would be an improvement. The temperature at which the gelato is kept is correct. It should not be overly chilled. Good for... More

Try one of everything. Go after dinner for a gelato and espresso. Or maybe after lunch for the chocolate mousse. Or maybe for brunch for the brunch crepes. No matter what time day or night the food is fabulous!

I go here for the Crepes’. But they have some other real nice desserts. A little pricey, but you get a good large Crepe’ and it tastes pretty good.

Have not had gelato this amazing since I was in Italy. I had the oreos and cream and the pistachio flavors in a waffle cone (which is a combination that I would highly recommend). The guy serving us was also very friendly and gave some great recommendations on flavors to try. Was not much seating in the place but it... More

They feature savory and sweet crepes as well as Italian gelato. The service was great and the food wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant. We dined just before the dinner hour and didn't have to wait.

We just spent this weekend in San Diego for a graduation. Went to Chocolat in the Hillcrest area one day and The Patio(look for that review) in Pacific Beach the other day. Both were excellent. The parking could be a challenge at Chocolat but we were lucky. The dining area feels a little cramped but not annoying. We went for... More

I can't speak to the taste of the desserts at Chocolat Cremerie because I was refused service. While standing in line behind other patrons I asked one of the guys behind the counter what a particular item was. Without even looking he yelled "I don't know, you'll have to ask them". He said it in such a rude way, but... More
