When we visited Cafe Choklad on our first day in Providence, they had run out of the chicken pot pie. Though we had two other excellent pot pies, we returned the next day for the chicken. YUM! Everything we ate there, including their wonderful variety...of cookies, was excellent, and their coffee is exceptional. Oh yes, and the staff makes you feel so welcome on your first visit. Thank you, Cafe Choklad.More

My husband, our 2 teenagers and myself had lunch last week there while vacationing in RI from out-of-state. The service was fast and friendly. My husband and I took the lobster roll. They were each $5 cheaper than in Newport, with significantly more lobster meat....It was seasoned just enough to not overshadow the lobster taste. We enjoyed it immensely. Our children took other sandwich (falafel and chicken) which they really enjoyed too. For dessert, we shared a macaroon and a cranberry-orange scone. The macaroon had plenty of coconut and wasn't too greasy or sweet. The scone really tasted orange, was soft inside and crunchy outside. Both were delicious. My husband and I had an espresso to accompany our sweets. There were one of the best we had in the US! Strong coffee taste but not bitter. If it weren't a 7-hour drive from home, we would go back there for sure!More

There is very little in the way of restaurants on Main Street in Providence, especially around RISD. I found the prices to be high, especially for coffee and sandwiches. The service is spotty with an ever rotating crew. As a result, service can be slow...during busy times.More

This nicely cozy place has spme beautiful art work on the walls and a friendly pleasant atmosphere. The small menu has several appealing items. . You need to check out the small blackboard for specials which we learned bout only after seeing another patron eating...a quiche that otherwise wasn't on the menu. Sandwich size was average. Tuna was decent bu nothing special. Vegguie burger was good and the fig jam sweet and flavorful. The pastries and cookies looked like they could be the bet choice.More

I think they cater to tourists and casual visitors. You wait in line to order a meal, then wait longer to pay and for all this you get the smallest and most overpriced sandwich ever. Advertised as a cobb salad wrap, mine had lettuce, dressing...and cheese. I think there was a slice of deli chicken but had to go back to get the guacamole, only to have the server say I ordered a sandwich without it (she was wrong). Worst sandwich ever.More

This cafe can't be beat for its friendly atmosphere and tasty food. The menu is wide-ranging and varied. We highly recommend the Cuban sandwich. Delicious.

Came in on a cold winter's day to this warm, cozy cafe. Cheery and comfortable decor and friendly staff made for a welcoming atmosphere. We both enjoyed our tasty sandwiches and drinks and at reasonable prices. Great art work for sale on the walls, and...handmade chocolates to take with you for the trip home.More

The cafe proved to be a great and timely find. Convenient to RISD and was great for a late lunch between graduation activities. Our group sampled a variety of wraps and salads. Food excellent and service too. All enjoyed the food. Couldn't leave without brownies...to go. A comfortable atmosphere.More

We visited the Cafe Choklad for lunch while visiting RISD. The food was delicious. We had the chicken salad sandwich, the Caesar salad wrap (it had croutons I the wrap - so good), and southwest on French roll. All of us really enjoyed our food....The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was quaint.More

On a chilly day we stopped in for a warm drink and stayed for lunch. All of their sandwiches are freshly made to order -- and look and taste yummy. Also, available are soups, salads, and awesome desserts. On a warm day you can also...eat on patio tables outside. The décor is colorful and cheerful with both booths and tables. It's self-service to eat in or take away.More

A friend and I were traveling the East Coast, walking in all the capital cities. We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn and didn't want to pay their ridiculous price for breakfast, so we decided to walk from the hotel to the capital building, with...the hopes of finding a coffee shop along the way. We were pleasantly surprised to find Cafe Choklad. It was quaint, and the aroma when we walked in the door told us we had found a good place. The coffee was great, strong, like I like it. The breakfast sandwiches were also tasty. Definitely a great little cafe in Providence.More

We went for a morning walk and happened to find this cafe. The coffee was excellent and egg sandwich was great. Would love to go back for some of their desserts.

This is a quaint, Swiss-themed café offering lunch items too. The Café Americano was really good, but the Swiss Apple Cake was awesome! It was moist and tasty and packed with flavor. Service was decent and the location is convenient. Prices are decent too.
