“Best Overall Experience in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We were looking for a FedEx office in downtown Coral Gables when I spied Chocolate Fashion, a little storefront a block off Miracle Mile. We parked on the street and walked in on a Monday morning. Bam! Friendly French-speaking folks with menus arrived swiftly. Terrific coffee and delicious fresh-squeezed O.J. "Slap-your-mama-good" Brioche French toast. The only negative, and a common one, was the noise level. Don't let that dissuade you -- this place is swell.

“Lovely little French cafe and bakery.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Tiny little place with delicious food and fresh baked goods. We always order to go as there is always a wait and very cramped environment. Worth the visit!

“Good Breakfast -”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Great place for a French type breakfast. The french toast and the Croque Madame where both very good. We also had some pastries to go which ended up being extremely well made and tasted great. The only part we did not have a very good experience with was the service which there where times that the servers came across a bit rude, not only with us but also with other tables. If going on a weekend keep in mind that this place gets packed and it will be hard to be seated if you are a large group (more than 4) but it is worth the wait.

“lovely french cafe this side of seine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Gem of a cafe with Chocolate as its speciality. Best pastries, awesome croissants, coffee and great lunch options too. Had a great beef steak dipped in a wine sauce. Out of the world.

“Delicious french toast...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I recently had breakfast at this restaurant because a friend recommended it. I was surprised to see that the place was packed despite being a tuesday morning.. I ordered the brioche french toast which was very very good and fresh. The place is small and the parking a bit complicated since it is in coral gables but it is worth the wait, specially on weekends mornings which I assume get pretty busy.
