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

A very simple, delightful Creamerie. We enjoyed it so much the first time, we spent 20 minutes looking for it to go back the second time. Lovely, nicely presented food........especially good for breakfast. An ice cream display to tempt the strongest will, along with some very nice hand made chocolates. Treat yourself! You won't be disappointed.

OMG, do not pass on ordering the dark chocolate gelato ... it is like fudge and it has such a delightful "chew" to it. I would come back here just to eat this flavor. It really was that good. The menu has more on it than just gelato but the hands-down favorite is the gelato. With the dark chocolate, I... More

Tasty lite breakfast in Gaslamp Quarter. Service a bit slow, but worth the wait. Food is tasty, fresh and cooked to perfection.

Looking for a light dinner, we came across this restaurant not knowing that it is primarily a Gelato shop. Only after ordering did we notice the name of the restaurant...so we were delighted that the salads were so good. Unfortunately I am a vegan and could not taste the gelato, but it looked great.
