“Simple and fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great place for salads and salty crepes. Always packed at night because the ice creams are delicious. During the day you can stop by anytime there is usually space to sit down.

“Tasty and Reasonably Priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

I went to Chocolat with a friend for brunch. Our food was really delicious, the service was good, and there was no wait on a Saturday morning. I really recommend the artisan toasts! The atmosphere of the restaurant is adorable and our meal wasn't rushed, even as tables started to fill up. When the bill came, I had reverse sticker-shock -- less expensive than I would have thought for such good food and service.

“Wonderful crepes and gelato”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Fresh and flavorful gelato that is creamy and flavorful, crepes that are light, very tasty with plenty of choices both savory and sweet. They also have a bar with a fine wine list and great gelato drinks too. The staff sometimes get frazzled during crowded visits and the wait can be a bit longer than you'd like but the flavor is worth it.

“Sublime!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Went originally for the gelato (over and over,) which is the best I've tasted, anywhere in the world (including France and Italy!) Took me ages to actually eat dinner. My loss. The main courses are amazing and the dessert crepes are well worth saving some room for! Can't wait to go back.
