Great hot cocoa

Nice place for a hot cocoa stop cookie or icecream. Can be crowded at times and not many tables. But could always take to go.

Had 2 cookies and a hot chocolate. All were good, and we were glad we stopped in, but none if it was terribly memorable.

Some of the best chocolate there is! The chocolate "chip" cookies are to die for! The "real" hot chocolate is out of this world! Truffles are excellent. Wow, what else is there to say!

If you're familiar with San Churros , this is a similar gourmet chocolate cafe with hot chocolate and many well crafted very delicious sweets. Try to couple this with a walk through the Dumbo area and then walk the Brooklyn Bridge back to New York which takes about Half hour. The bridge is 6 minutes walk away.

Best chocolate ever and I've had a lot. To tell you how good it is, I'm a weight watchers lifetime member (18 mos at goal) and I have a scoop of the chocolate ice cream when I'm in NYC. I don't eat ice cream any more. That'll be it until I'm back in NYC.

Considered "Mr. Chocolate," the accomplished and world-renowned Jacques Torres opened his first chocolate factory for wholesale and retail at this location in 2000 (the factory has since moved to a larger location). Chef Torres is not just a confectioner but is a chocolatier -- he makes the chocolate itself from the beans and then fashions it into bars, bon bons,... More

We stopped by the DUMBO location of this mini-empire. Just a half-portion of the extremely rich shake made with real cocoa was an amazingly satisfying treat of a hot summer day. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Wanted to see the DUMBO area and quality chocolate is always an incentive. Read other reviews lauding the hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies, and had to give it a try. OMG, the wicked hot chocolate is incredible! Like drinking delicious hot fudge, spiced up. Companions had the same thing, but in ice cream form. Incredible! Also have other treats,... More
