“Best Hot Chocolate in Edinburgh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Have been here loads as it's near to home and we're never disappointed. Great selection of single origin hot chocolate, beautiful cakes, ice cream and hand made chocolates. Chocolate paradise! Just one complaint, they need bigger premises! Seats are at a premium.

“An Oasis of Chocolate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

This was a charming little cafe. Once we stumbled across it we returned every day during our brief stay. Hot chocolate single variety choices to die for, a real chocaholic's dream. Lose leaf tea served in real china. A massive array of chocolate bars to choose while you sip your drink, they are amazing we couldn't help but get a variety to take home. The big plus was the range of gluten free treats on offer (our son is coeliac and is a chocaholic so he was in heaven). It's gems like this place that make cities like Edinburgh well worth the trip.
