What a scrumptious place. So much chocolate and so little time. I got a sampler and some maple creams. . All so fresh and tasty. The man working there was not too friendly and was not upbeat at all. If I worked there I would be happy every day!

The Chocolate Bar excels in all things chocolate - candies, cakes, brownies, cookies and wonderful ice cream + coffee. It is a small space on Alabama that is a nice place to stop in for dessert. Don't miss it.

These folks have everything; candies, cakes, milkshakes, etc... Fun atmosphere, lots of creative designs and friendly people. Not cheap but worth it for desert lovers.

This is a nice place if you like artisan chocolates and diabetes in the same store. Oreos, Twinkies, and all assortment of things enshrined in chocolate love here. There is also cakes, cheese cakes, and ice cream in case you couldn't find a particular item already available dipped in chocolate. The interior is a bit cramped but the staff is... More

I'm not a huge chocolate fan, but my friend raved about the ice cream here so I had to try it. While there were lots of pure chocolate flavors for the chocoholics, I found two that had other great tastes too-- a heavenly orange chocolate and a toffee-coffee flavor (btw-- the 2 together in a cup were amazing!). This place... More

I've been here several times with my husband. It's a good place for treats. There are a variety of fudge, chocolate pieces, ice cream, slice of pie, cake by the slice, and holiday themed treats. There is also hot/cold drinks available including coffee or hot chocolate. Our favorites: Deep dish pecan pie - He loves the deep dish pecan pie.... More

I always take out of town guests to this place. I love the selection and the cake always delivers on taste. I have tried some other places - do not compare.

Only go here if you afford the calories because your best intentions will be thrown out the door after the chocolatey smell hits you. Delicious decadence, huge pieces of cake, ice cream, candy. Not cheap - but so worth it. Be sure to share, too much for one person.

I moved away from the area and had not been to this place for around five years. After moving back to Houston, I had the opportunity to visit again after dinner one evening. The shop was as attractive as ever (I remember when it was just one room before they added the coffeehouse area). I really wanted to have some... More
