Very tasty waffle and nice atmosphere...busy due to its popularity! Convenient location too if you're using subways as u should be (we visited from England for my partners 30th birthday...he loved it too!)

Food was okay, mixed feelings by the members of our group, but the chocolate... oh the chocolate! I don't love things that are super sweet so I was surprised when I fell in LOVE with their milkshakes and hot cocoa. Not too sweet but just sweet enough.

They knew it was my birthday so they put a candle in a strawberry and scattered gummy bears across the plate. So cute and yummy! My mom had a delicious... More

Besides the chocolate shop, there is a takeout beverage counter and restaurant too! I tried the white chocolate chai tea to go and it was delicious. A chocolate lovers stop for sure, the place was pretty busy with happy customers.

Gorgeous food great service was so happy I came across this on the internet before I got to nyc. Book your table on open table before you go cause you'll need to. And if taking a cab make sure you get the street number right cause of course New York is huge and when we got off in union square... More

Went for breakfast. Had cappuccinos and were delicious. It's like a Willy Wonka chocolate factory. Good service. Has a store so you can buy nice gifts and chocolates.

The Restaurant Big, loud and a bit confusing. The noise was insane and it felt more like a big tourist trap than a nice place to indulge in chocolate. Oddly, it does not seem this way at the location in Boston. The Ambiance See above, and packed for mid-week, but it is New York and restaurants are always busy so... More
