Rows and rows of delicious chocolate, candies and ice cream. Parking was challenging (as it always is in Houston). There are tables for enjoying your treats in the A/C and for birthday parties.

Went there for a mini-getaway while in Houston with my husband shortly before the baby was born, and it was amazing! I love dark chocolate anything, and this was like a little slice of heaven for me. They have ice cream, custom-molded chocolate in shapes ranging from telephones to footballs to celebrating various occasions, like baby showers. There's also chocolate-dipped... More

I never liked this place much. I know soo many people who love it and try to take me back, but I'm always disappointed. In particular I find their chocolate ice cream to be really watery and mediocre.

Who doesn't love exotic homemade flavors of ice cream? Ice cream packed with chocolate? Nuts?Candies? Summer fruits? How about specialized coffee drinks? Dipped handmade chocolates? Extraordinary gift chocolates? Oh, how about a trip down memory lane to the penny candy store? It's all delicious and all at the Chocolate Bar in Rice Village. There are tables and booths so you...

The cake and ice cream are delicious! You can sample all the flavors. Also, you should know the cake slices are huge. My favorite is the Uncle Darryl. It is chocolate cake with toffee bits and chocolate syrup.

Kids love this place! There are specialty cakes, ice cream, candies, and chocolate in the shape of pretty much anything and with a variety of unique flavor combinations. While the snacks are a bit pricey, they are absolutely delicious.

If it can be made with chocolate in it somehow, the do it. Half the store is a candy store with homemade specailties galore. The other half is ice cream and cake. If you dont feel stuffed after eating here, wow!!

If you love chocolate, then making a visit to the Chocolate Bar is a MUST. Hands down the best ice cream, cakes, frozen hot chocolate and other choco-delights you'll ever encounter. A family tradition and family favorite for over a decade.

Chocolate lovers' paradise! Ice creams and desserts are incredibly rich and good! Try the pecan brownies as well. Really - come back again and again and try everything.
