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

Sadly didn't have the hot chocolate...wrong time of day for us for such indulgence but we saw it and it looked good! Good brunch in nice location. Sat outside in the sun, value was good.

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

About 15 years ago we visited Potsdam and had an unforgettably delicious cup of hot chocolate at Maison du Chocolat. I went back this week, and assumed my memory might not match reality - but I'm happy to report this restaurant is still producing the best hot chocolate I've encountered. It isn't part of the chain you might have encountered... More

We stopped here for a drink and cake during a day trip to Potsdam from Berlin. The cafe is quaint, with friendly service and the standard of the food and drink was very good. Great place to stop when walking round the town and historic Dutch Quarter. Would recommend.

Came for dinner with a colleague and while I thought the menu was limited, the food was very good and the service friendly and pleasant. Must say the place was empty for a Friday evening at around 7 PM. This restaurant is a short walk from the touristy shops and area of Potsdam in an Amsterdam looking setting. We did... More

I read the reviews on this venue before and needed to experience it for myself. I wasn't disappointed! The hot chocolate served here has got nothing to do with hot chocolate as I experienced it before. If you like to compare it with coffee, this is like the Espresso of chocolate. I would recommend a glas of water afterwards, but... More
