We went to this place, the day after being disappointed by another coffee shop in the town. We went quite early, as we were on our way home, so the place was not busy. There was a good choice of different flavours hot chocolate, including 'dark chocolate'. I went for the praline hot chocolate, and my partner chose the indulgent... More

An amazing place for mouthwatering cakes and chocolates. Service good in bright, airy and contemporary interior design.

One of the best coffee shops we have visited. Not only is the coffee good but the chocolates and cakes etc are amazing and well worth the hit on the wallet. The staff were friendly and helpful. I have been informed by my better half that we will be visiting again.

Directions for here are not very clear. A lot of the sign posts direct you to the chocolate school so beware. Cakes nice and appealing but felt like they were missing something. The smoothies however are very tasty. Wouk go back but not in a hurry.

Lots of different kinds of chocolate goodies. Lovely coffee and the lady who runs Cocoa Black is a professional Chocalateer. (not sure how that is spelt)

I had an egg mayo sandwich and my partner had chocolate cake, he said it was fantastic. Could of spent hundreds on all the lovely chocolates.
