Outstanding hot chocolate - liquid chocolate. Good food and excellent service. Had a hamburger and fries which was scrumptious.

“For all you chocolate lovers...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

If you have a sweet tooth then this is the place for you! In a quaint old character building, this cafe mixes the old with the new. Everything has been well thought, from the outside seating, lovely climber plants, fairy lights, right down to the detailing in the bathroom. The waitress was lovely and made genuine conversation - great service! I got a hot chocolate which was rich and chocolately, however a little pricy. I loved the chocolate shop which is part of the building, it was great that you could buy a few nibbles to take home - and also in the desired amount (unlike other places that make you buy 500g without tasting!). Would definitely recommend!

“Choc heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

What a fabulous place. A real gem. Try the house hot chocolate, the best I've ever had bar none. The mocha was outstanding too on our second visit. The hot things for lunch are just yummy with a lot of home-made really interesting things. And they have a sweet and gift shop on the side! It deserves a big detour to get here but it's just off the main highway.

“Great cafe - but a tad expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I enjoy CB, their food is good, their service is good, they have plenty of seating both indoor and out. However their prices are "city" prices rather than local.
They have a great chocolate and treat shop attached to the restaurant, which (for many) adds to the appeal.
