We walked in looking to buy some chocolates. We met the very friendly owners who have been there for many years. We discovered that it was more of a place to go get dessert. They explained how they started serving meals because some customers were also looking for that. We looked at the menu and decided to return the next... More

After date night my wife and thought we would stop in and try the Chocolate Cafe. It was a Wednesday night in old town Ft Collins so we didn't think that lines and over crowding would be a problem. We arrived to a cute little place with a very welcoming patio on Olive St. We walked up to the Hosts... More

The Chocolate Cafe serves more than just chocolate. They have alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, regular lunch and dinner fare, and other non-chocolate desserts. This is a quaint cafe, so seating is cozy and there are not many tables. I was there with a group of 15 and we took up half the seating. During the warm months, there is a... More

I am not a big dessert of chocolate person but this place was excellent. Excellent dessert spot. There is limited space and they do recommend reservations. Their truffles and pie were great!

I must say that I am not big on dessert, but every now and then I indulge. My husband and I had dinner in Old Town and decided on dessert at the Chocolate Cafe. The white chocolate bread pudding is outstanding!!! Omg! So delicious. It is served with a warm white chocolate sauce you pour over the bread pudding. So... More

Not sure if the restaurant folks themselves are giving random good reviews here but we had a pretty bad experience yesterday. We had ordered three different chocolate desserts and they all were dry and tasted so so. Why would anyone rate this place anything more than a 1 or 2 stars is beyond me. Even worse was the service. Waiter... More

This cafe is so quaint and adorable. Although it is small, it is probably the best dessert I've ever tasted. I'm not gluten free and yet the trifecta is AMAZING! Their chocolate martinis are to die for. This is definitely a cute place for parties/birthdays.

As someone with a sweet tooth, The Chocolate Cafe lived up to everything I imagine it would be. All but two of the desserts are made in-house, and they are AMAZING. A new favorite place of mine. There isn't a whole lot of "regular" food on the menu, but the few things I've tried were very good. The pizza is... More

Visited for the first time for a night out with some girls. Their dessert menu has a wide variety, also offering gluten free items. The restaurant seating is small, so late night is probably easier to get a seat rather than around dinner time. Reservations are recommended for parties of 6 or more. I had the Neopolitan cake which was... More

My family and I saw this café and thus began our day, mine with a chocolate noir dish and my companion a buttery croissant type of dessert, great tea and fancy coffee! Alex was our server, great resource when in doubt of what to order. I informed him I enjoy dark chocolate and he was Right on the Money with... More
