“Giant Cake Portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Enormous multiple layer cakes, rich cheese cakes and divine ice creams are just the beginning if the chocolate treats available at the Alabama and University locations. Unique ice cream creations make this a special place for ice cream and the cake selections are larger in variety and larger in size than you would see anywhere else. Plan on ordering coffee with your cake. The size of the offering and the richness requires the coffee to finish it all. Older adults, yuppies, teens and children are in the Chocolate bar.

“A Thin Slice of Heaven”

If heaven smells llike chocolate, I hope it smells like the Chocolate Bar. Awesome homemade ice cream. Decadent chocolate cakes. Great coffee. One of our favorite places to go after a show.

“Refrozen Ice-Cream”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Refrozen Ice-Cream. I think local places are not an ice-cream destination for me. I will stick with a name brand.

“Chocolate, chocolate everywhere! Chocolate lover's paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I met some friends there and didn't have time to look at everything! There are over 20 different ice creams to choose from - they will give you a taste so you can refine your selection. I had 3 different ones (sorry, can't remember names) and they were all fabulous - all had some kind of chocolate in them. They also sell 4 layer cakes - abit pricey but look fabulous.
