Ok then so who doesn't like chocolate and especially chocolate cake or another yummy with coffee. This place has nice coffee (but not hot) and lovely cakes. But the cups are way too small for the price and the cakes.....well they are just a plain rip off. Awesome looking but the price will scare you. What I've paid $7 in... More

Went here after dinner for coffee. Coffee was good but small cups. We also had a small chocolate cup cake which was pretty ordinary. Other cakes in the display cabinet looked nice enough though.

Cocolat looks lovely but the desserts are really mass-market food service, cakes of the type that are designed to look good but have long shelf life. The place isn't "bad" by any means, and the environment is perfectly comfortable. But this really isn't a top-quality desert house.

They serve really good drinking chocolate. I can recommand you the mint one. I ate there also chocolate cupcake and peanutbutter brownie that were a little to sweet for me. But in general- really nice place.

As you would expect, this place is going to be a real hit with the high school aged girls who aren't quite old enough to convince the bouncers to let them into the nightclubs yet. Or maybe its just a place where real sweet tooths go. Either way, they do a perfectly acceptable job and have been around there on... More

We went to cocolat with a friend to have a little snack. The chocolate tart was delicious but the lemon tart wasn't the best. They are experts in chocolate so stick to chocolate recipes to have the best experience!

Nice drinks, was slightly disappointed as we had come for dessert, and they were out of the option 2 of the 3 of us had decided on. Pana cotta. Also there was several dirty tables around us, no one came to clear them the entire time we were there. But I would go back for the variety of hot chocolates.... More

Went here for dessert with a friend on a quiet Tuesday night. The place is very warm and inviting and the staff were lovely. But we did encounter a few problems. 1 - only one staff member in sight at first and we waited quite some time for our order. 2 - we ordered a macadamia and maple syrup crepe.... More

Average considering it's pretty expensive. You're better off going to Copenhagen or buying some Lindt chocolate for the sane price!

This was really disappointing. The service was very slow, and the staff were overworked and uninterested. Prices were far too high for poor quality desserts. The chocolate espresso was literally a teaspoon of cheap liquid icing in an espresso cup. Both companions were similarly disappointed.
