My husband, parents and I stopped here for a cool afternoon treat. There were 28 flavors of ice cream to choose from and the staff were friendly and offered as many samples as we wanted. The portions were huge and it was fun to sit outside and enjoy the people watching in monument circle.

There were lots of chocolate choices Great place for dessert (hot chocolate in winter). It was a little small so it got crowded with only one person waiting on people at the chocolate counter. Chocolates ended up costing approximately $1 each. They also serve ice cream which people seemed to be enjoying, but we were too busy picking out chocolates... More

One of the cute shops on the circle that is worthwhile for your sweet tooth. The cafe has something for everyone from truffles to ice cream. If you are looking for a cool Halloween basket, this is a great place to grab one. Or if you are seeking simple but elegant chocolate gifts, there are many to choose from. The... More

My family spent the day at the Children's Museum and we wanted to get some dessert. When you walk in you see all the chocolate, but go to the back and they have the cakes. We got a white and dark chocolate mousse cake, a caramel cake and a piece of chocolate cake. We did notice a piece of 7... More

Had read the reviews prior to going here so was looking forward to it. The place looked amazing, the chocolate displays looked great, the cakes looked delicious and the options available to choose from were vast. However the coffee tasted horrible, the cake looked better than it tasted and the man serving us was so rude and arrogant that we... More

Stopped in while walking monument circle and grabbed a couple of treats for the kids. Expensive yes, but very good and worth a look.

It is a cute cafe where you can sip some coffee or buy some chocolate. The best feature is their bear figure that is great in the pictures. We love the place a lot.

Good flavored. I had the salted caramel and toffee and both were great. Serve a huge cup for $4. Had to look for the person to serve but once I found him it was ok

Located along the southwestern quadrant of Monument Circle, the Chocolate Café is an excellent place to get a treat and enjoy it while sitting outside along the wonderful atmosphere of Monument Circle, the center of activity in Indianapolis. While this place certainly was very busy, like everything else along Monument Circle, on Friday and Saturday evenings, we found the lines... More
