“Decadent Hot Chocolate”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

We had been doing some site seeing and were around St. Michael’s Square when my friend suggested that we stop at Zolotiy Dukat. The restaurant itself was cosy and crowded and made up of individual rooms with tables quite close together, so not much privacy. As it is a coffee and dessert place we weren't planning on staying that long, as we had other sites to see.

They had a showcase of desserts which included apple strudel which is one of my favs and a large assortment of coffee and teas, though my friend recommended I try the hot chocolate. Well the strudel was a disappointment very bland tasting, bereft of cinnamon and nutmeg I believe, but the hot chocolate made up for that in spades. OMG it was delicious and so thick you ate it with a spoon instead of sipping it. We ordered a different type each, my friends was white and dark chocolate and I ordered one that was orange and pink with dried plums as a garnish. I must say it was decadent and worth a trip to this restaurant. Zolotiy Dukat is apparently part of a chain of restaurants and can be found in Lviv and other Ukrainian cities also.

“Great Coffee and Dessert place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This small coffee shop was definitely a great experience!
From the atmosphere and decoration to the items in the menu, this place definitely stands out among many other more traditional coffee houses.
They have a great selection of coffees, that can be made as espresso, ristretto, or americano. One item for example has its coffee beans covered in edible gold. Even though I cannot attest to the veracity of the claim, it definitely had an excellent taste.
In addition to pure coffee, they also offer their own selection of coffee based drinks and hot chocolates.
Finally, there is a decent selection of dessert items and chocolates, mostly traditional, but some specialties, that did not disappoint.
They had an english menu, however, it was definitely not as stylish as the one in Ukrainian.
The main weakness would be the service, which wasn't very friendly or helpful.

Overall, the experience was great, and I would definitely recommend a visit!
