Food is fresh and attractively/interestingly presented. Service was only fair, but our group of four enjoyed our meal; hard to get our waitress' attention.. They should offer herbal iced tea. Not great for people seeking gluten free, but it is a bakery. They could offer...More

Chocolate Maven is a local favourite, in a town with a wealth of wonderful eateries to choose from. The food is consistently good, whatever you order, and the service always friendly. It's a place I like to meet friends.

I did not actually eat on site here, but I ordered a chocolate cake here for my daughter's birthday and picked up for her party at home. Best cake I ever had--not cheap but well worth the price!

We got my birthday cake from here and it was simply delicious. My wife is a cake snob and she always makes my birthday cake from scratch. Because we were traveling, we had to entrust an outsider to do the job and Chocolate Maven rose...More

To get to the restaurant, you have to walk through part of the bakery, just enough to tempt you to bring some amazing pastries home after you eat a glorious meal. Everything on the menu is excellent and fresh. The portions are generous so it...More
