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.

It was an awfully hot day, I was just looking for Airconditioning & water the Chocolate Cafe was a fantastic find!!! Although it is small, the staff is very kind & accommodating! They had items to eat for lunch & of course luscious chocolate goodies. If you get the chance stop by, you won't be disappointed.

The cafe only serve hot choclate and on the day that I went there, it's really hot so I decided that I need cold drinks so I ordered ice coffee instead. I tried blueberry cheese cake and it is so good.

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.
