Food and service was very good. Nice selection to choose from. Chocolate rich & creamy. Plenty of chocolate choices. This place is worth the visit. Reservation suggested as it gets crowded.

This shop is very crowded and slow in seating the customer. The way they treated the customers is not professional at all. The order was delicious and just prepared it's good to try if you can tolerate the service and waiting time remember even to get the bill and change you will take very long time tolerate that

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
