We waked from Matlock town yesterday and stopped for hot chocolate and coffee. The shop didn't have much choice for chocolates but plentiful for chocolate drinks. Ample cream and mini marshmallows.

Stopped for a drink, hot chocolate was great ( lots of different flavours) freshly made to order. Also many chocolate products which were very good. Staff were great and helpful with our young baby. The shop is a good layout and looks well set up in and out. Parked outside as you get 1 hour free parking on the road.

Lovely little sweet shop that serves good coffee and hot chocolate as well as selling a wonderful range of confectionery. Owners are characters and you can be sure of a little banter if you are in the mood...and polite. It would be very rude to just walk past this lovely shop....you really should go in.

Thank FurbyTDi
