“Surprising find! Lovely chocolates!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I stumbled across this place when looking for the French restaurant almost opposite (Bon Plaisir).

It's a really nice chocolatier in the heart of London, producing beautiful chocolate that is really well presented. It would definitely give La Maison du Chocolat and Jean Luc Pelé a run for their money (but just not at that level - just yet!).

I bought a selection of milk and dark truffles, including Lemon truffles which were really nice. There was also a nice little box of 'A Flight of Twinkle Toes' - little milk chocolates for the ballet dancer in the family.

Definitely a treat to bring home ...

“Great Belgian chocolates”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Decadent, rich chocolates with real character. Took about five pounds back to the U.S. Special assortments for the holidays, (Easter eggs this trip). Recommended stop, across the street from Monmouth Coffee.

“GO THERE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Everything you can dream about regarding chocolate you can find here. We bought over 50GBP worth of chocolate on our trip and so far everything we've tasted was well worth it. They had very nice easter egg collection (I liked it a lot more than for example what Harrods had to offer even though they had very nice stuff too). They also sell wines, port, champagne etc. that is chosen to go well with chocolate, chocolate cooking books, tasting sets and whatever else you can think of that has something to do with chocolate. Excellent service, we got all the information we needed, some samples and walked away happy, sure that we'd be coming back soon!

“Great treats for those back home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

I popped in here to get some treats for my family back home and I wasn't let down. On a cold March evening I also had one of the best hot chocolates I can remember ever!
