Very busy when we arrived so quite chaotic. However the scone and jam is probably the best I've ever had! The jam, like most of their produce, is Scottish and local and absolutely divine, the scones are freshly baked every morning. My husband had the Dark Hot Chocolate drink and declared it "wonderful". Nice gifts to take home as presents.... More

We spent 2 weeks in Oban 2 years ago, and never got round to trying The Chocolate Factory - so we wanted to try it this time anyway. When the heavens opened, it was a good excuse to try the hot chocolate. We were amazed at how big The Chocolate Factory was inside. The three of us were kucky enough... More

I drink my coffee black and this was quite simply the smoothest, nicest coffee I have ever had. Bought a load of the on-site made fresh chocolates for colleagues....only a few made it back to the office! Overwhelmingly impressed :)

I can only comment on their ice cream. £1.75 buys you a one-scoop cone which is several scoops in fact - and just about as much as I can eat. The honeycomb flavour is wonderful!

We stopped in for cappacinos and hot chocolate! Amazing chocolate varieties! It was very busy because it was raining...of course, lol. The young ladies still served hot drinks even though most places quite serving to be out the door at closing. Great place to have a sweet treat or a hot drink!

Regularly visit with my girlfriend and the coffees, teas, iced coffees and of course the chocolate are always great. Staff are always very pleasant even when very busy!

Deliciously decadent! Afternoon hot chocolate indulgence with a dipping sauce and shortbread/strawberries. Childrens heaven. Definitely chocolate overload. If you are lucky enough to find it not too busy you could spend the afternoon lounging here in deep sofas with the beautiful view of the coastline. They also sell handmade chocolates and have a window to see these being made.

Comfy sofas, great view, wonderful chocolate! Try the single origin hot chocolate - it's completely delicious!
