We ordered the Cuban style sandwiches that were made in a waffle. They were excellent. We had the 80s milkshake and the hot chocolate, both yummy. For dessert, we ordered a chocolate crepe- very good. It was a fun and tasty dinner.

I have eaten here in the past and it was great but the real draw to this place for me is the chocolate shots. They come in a syringe and are full of chocolate goodness! I would say the consistency is between pudding and mousse and it's not too rich. At only $5 a pop I can enjoy getting my... More

Go for breakfast! Food was really good and the hot chocolate and waffles were excellent. My son had the chocolate pizza, and had a great time. Coffees were excellent too.

The restaurant is good, the place is packed but we just had the chocolate fondant in a tightly packed space. One could say its a bit overrated. Too many teens around at lunch time.

We arrived early for our reservation but staff seated us anyway. Server was great, attentive and helpful. Food was great - my son's burger and fries came with a paint brush for "painting on" ketchup. Dessert was the real star here though. My son had a make-your-own ice cream bar! I had a waffle which was so/so but I really... More

Family visited for dinner on my daughter's birthday. We were scrunched in for a table of 5. Not enough room on table for drinks and food. Spinach artichoke dip served cold. Hot chocolate served to kids without the marshmallows that were supposed to be on top. Husband's burger served with BBQ sauce when asked for without. Told waiter multiple times... More

Ate there today, and it was expensive and tasteless! Save your money and bypass the restaurant part. Chocholate shop in front of house is ok, but frankly nothing special to warrant the high prices. Crowded very late in the afternoon and poor table service. Kids got the fondue and it was nothing more than two tablespoons of melted chocholate, white... More

I went there on a week day afternoon around 16.30 for a hot chocolate and some afternoon dessert. The idea was great and the decoration and theme was fun, especially if you are a chocolate lover. There were gimmicks in every single thing which I adore! I ordered the swiss hot chocolate from the normal menu (there were two menus,... More
