If you go there , you need time, TIME is important, cause you will need lots of it, and this is what they actually tell you in their menu card. So be patient, but it's worth it. We had a Flammkuchen sort of a German focaccia with filet and it was really tasty, nice and friendly service in a cost... More

We went to this place specifically for the hot chocolate and we weren't disappointed. Thick, rich and just the right amount, with a side serving of cream. We've tried some great hot chocolate in our time and this was up there with the best. Plus it is in a lovely setting in the heart of the Dutch Quarter.

Potsdam has the weird timeless feeling especially at the dutch quarter and especially at "La Maison du Chocolat". Bakeries, hot beverages at their best! I strongly advise to go there with your kids!

We came here to have a coffee and something sweet and we both were amazed about how delicious our cakes and chocolate were. I took an assortion of chocolates from the dessert list and I have never tasted such a delicious dessert. The setting was also very pretty. ( A photo below) My boyfriend took a piece of chocolate cake... More

Nice and chic cafe! As you can guess, this place' main attraction is the chocolate. Its everything and anything about that bloody brown gold! A must try if you at the Dutch-Distric in Potsdam- should be the best one in town. Fair price and good service as well.

Given the name of this restaurant, we came for the dessert. From pastries and cakes to ice cream, they have the sweets covered. The display case was filled to the brim with handmade, beautiful goodies. Three of us had three different items, cake, ice cream and pie. They were all excellent.

I was walking around the Dutch Quarter in Potsdam and decided to find a little table here for a late lunch. It took a while to get a menu and to order, but the staff apologized both times. I ordered a mushroom tart, topped with fried eggs and prosciutto, and served with a delicious salad of greens, apples, radish, and... More

The hot chocolate is just the right thickness and darkness. By itself, it is not too sweet, which is perfect. It comes with sweet cream to add in to make it a little more milky and sweeter. It's great with and without the cream! The chocolate cake we had was dry and nothing compared to the hot chocolate. The location... More
