Experienced this neat little place on an anniversary weekend downtown Indy. Late night strolling the circle, stopped for some ice cream here, waited in line for a good 20 min, but it was worth the wait! Outside & inside seating available, lots of great, fresh chocolate/candy to choose from and other neat little gifts. Wasn't sure what to expect... was... More

Loved this place!! We made a stop by here late one evening on the way back to our hotel from dinner and decided to grab some goodies to go. Cheesecake was excellent and the pricing was reasonable considering the size and quality of the items. Business was booming while we were in there so there was a bit of a... More

Highly recommend the white chocolate hot chocolate, but the dark chocolate hot chocolate is a close second. After walking around downtown on a cold day we were ready to enjoy cocoa, but I would not call this a cafe. There is very limited seating along the window.

Great icecream with amazing varieties. Lot of gifting options as well. Something to take back home from Indianapolis.

We happened upon this place by sheer accident and I had to go in. We each bought a dessert (I got peanut butter chocolate cake and my friend got carrot cake). We went back to the hotel and just died from the decadence of the cakes. Amazingly friendly staff, too!

The chocolate cafe is chocolate heaven. If you love chocolate, or if you even like chocolate, you should definitely go. The cakes are ginormous. The ice cream is divine. If I drank coffee, I'd probably love it too.

Every time my sister visits, we go to the chocolate cafe. We have gotten coffee, ice cream, and a ridiculous assortment of cakes and pies here. Every single thing we have had here is fantastic. Sometimes we get so much that we feel a little chocolate-logged after (like water-logged--get it?). Their stuff is so rich! If you love chocolate, this... More

The chocolate was just average. But, we went back that night and the ice cream was fantastic. They were understaffed. But, the staff that was there was very friendly. Unfortunately, the staffing led to a dirty store.

The desserts are beautiful but they don't taste as great as they look. The six layer chocolate cake was dry and had a bland flavor and then cost $10.00! The ice cream was good but overpriced. Lastly the cheesecake did not live up to the price tag.
