Rude Staff, Limited Flavors, No toppings and HUGE PRICES My husband stopped in, after dinner, for gelato. The staff is unbearably rude, as if they are doing you a favor to wait on you. You get a taste of a flavor only if you really insist. The flavor selection is rather limited. When I asked for chopped nuts, they looked... More

You order your food and then sit, GREAT food and very reasonable prices despite being at the Gaslamp. The chestnut pancake and the tiramisu pancake were delicious. Are the seat covers cow skin, they could not tell?

I loved the gelato here, I even went back a 2nd time to try another flavor. Each time the staff was less than enthusiastic about their job and the flavor options. Sucks to have great cream and bad ppl promoting it.

Unbelievable gelato, many favors to choose from. Not inexpensive but well worth the money. Nice stop after eating in the Gaslamp

Love this place, good lunch spot for me. I'm always surprised that there isn't a longer line. During Comic-Con was packed. Food is already fresh no matter who I've eaten here with likes it. They actually turn on the ac a bit on the hot days which was why I left burger lounge today and came here. The gelato is... More

The Crepes & Gelato were tasty! Didn't care for the chocolate cheesecake. Got our stuff to-go and the crepes were still enjoyable. Seating is cute on inside. Would be a sweet little after dinner date place for dessert.

When we arrived here there was a line of patrons extending to the door, but the line moved quickly. On this second visit we shared a banana-chocolate crepe and delicious creamy ice cream. The crepe was light and the ingredients fresh. Parking can be a problem in this area of town but the fabulous desserts will be your reward!

One of my favorite morning dishes is Eggs Benedict and the one served up a the "Chocolat Cremerie" has to be one of the best I've had at a restaurant. We enjoyed both the 'Spinach & Ham" and the "Portobello Mushroom" for breakfast and can certainly recommend these to anyone visiting this location.

Wow... my husband and I went to Chocolat in the late morning for a brunch-ish meal. I got a rosemary chicken crepe with gruyere and grilled zucchini. He had the imported ham panini. We both got coffees, too, and were pleasantly surprised at how delicious and smooth they were. The desserts were every bit as divine. I had the Nutella... More
