The 75% dark hot chocolate was sublime. The I've cream was heavenly and the chocolate dark fruit cake was out of this world. Would advise paying when you order to save waiting as it was a busy place.

Quick pop in for a coffee and faced with the point of sale muffin, which tasted as good as it looked. I've been faced with overpriced coffee shop cakes before and they have often disappointed. However this was simply devine :)

This shop serves outstanding chocolate and it offers a menu with a variety of options, from the mild and delicate ones to the 100% chocolate experience. Exotic elements include spicy "Mayan hot chocolate" but if you prefer something more British, why not chocolate cake? The five stars are well deserved also due to the chocolate ice cream, which is certainly... More

I went here with friends and it was mostly lovely - good food and drinks (I recommend the mango sorbet!), and nice staff. The only thing was that the seating was rather uncomfortable - we were seated in the bay window in the blazing sun, on hard backless stools. If I went again I'd either make sure I was sat... More

For me eating out is all about the food I may find difficult to make myself or too time consuming or just not logical. So when it comes to cake, specially some rich chocolate infused then I am there with my fork ready to taste. I had hazelnut vegan cake and I was melting by the richness, texture and superb... More

The mayan hot chocolate was deliciously spicy and served in a charming teacup. Sea salt caramel chocolates were amazing. I will be returning very soon.

A must go to if you love hot chocolates! I'm lactose intolerant and to find a place with excellent hot chocolate like here is a win. Didn't try the chocolate but rumour has it it too is excellent.
