I fell in love with this place when I first went in. The air smells of cocoa and chocolate. The brownies are simply delicious and decadent.

I'll keep it simple: avoid! Unfriendly, pricy, no mousse of chocolate, no real chocolate artist, merely chocolatemilk. Don't know what happened. It used to be good. Used...

I like their milkshake. the brownie is also tasty. It's good for snacking time, and after that you are getting full of that. The place is also nice, sometimes a bit to noisy with many chit-chats. the service is okay too. :)
