Sweet and nice place

Very nice and unique place. We bought a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows and it was very tasteful. So nice that we could not stop drinking it. We also bought white chocolate with Lemon merengue and it was/is mouth melting. Delicious. Recommend a stopover after a meal or a hike.

This is a cute, old fashioned chocolate shop but it definitely wasn't the best I've ever been in. They don't accept cards which is pretty irritating this day and age, I had to draw money out in the arcade which charges you. The hot chocolate was very nice and the bits I brought were very yummy! I brought some chocolate... More

Very disappointing, the hot chocolate tastes thin, like it's made with water and not milk. I've been twice now in and out of season, so I know they cannot blame it on the day been too busy for them to make a proper drink. I thought it was also very expensive for such a horrible taste. Sorry don't try it.... More

Dropped in on a chilly day. Friendly warm welcome as always. We always drop in at least for a coffee if we're in Matlock Bath as the hot drinks are so nice. New cherrylicious hot chocolate is lovely 😋

If you want a good quality cup of coffee, hot chocolate or even tea, this is a must visit place. That's not including the fabulous fudge, chocolate and ice cream!
