“Flannery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Really excellent flan, wine, cake and coffee. Was the service eccentric? perhaps but this didn't detract from a really good lunch. Ambiance was a bit cool, but what should you expect in a bakery/cafe.

Took away almond tarts which were great next day with Pateley Bridge pork pie and a glass of Yorkshire bitter. Will return to try the chocolate, perhaps a small free sample when paying the bill or with our coffees would have been a good move.

Review should be under "Restaurant" category and not "Attractions" not sure how to change it though.

“Inefficient Staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Hot chocolate as I’ve described before, except that this time, they didn’t bring the jugs of hot milk until my husband had already finished his drink, and my daughter and I were half way through ours. This spoilt it, because it needs that milk to dilute the richness. There are six tables, three waitresses, and they were completely and totally inefficient. One of the waitresses came out to apologise when we were paying, saying that they’d not coped because they’d been busier than they’d expected!!! Six tables, three waitresses – do the maths.

“A disapointing return”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

I have visited Cabosse on a number of occasions. Unfortunately there seems to have been a deterioration in customer service. No longer is there a table serice to order in the cafe and i had to pay at the point of orderng. No choice regarding coffee types.Customer service skills left alot to be desired. You can do better Cabosse. I know you can because you have done on my previous visits

“simply the best hot chocolate on the planet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

firstly this little choclaterie/patisserie is not in australia...it is in england!

having said that it is a destination in its own right... most beautiful patisseries and chocolates.

Not possible to recommend it highly enough! We enjoyed wonderful patisseries and quite simply the best ever hot chocolate imaginable.

“Hot Chocolate to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

The front room of this little shop sells chocolates and glorious desserts/pastries to take away. The back room is a small cafe, selling hot drinks and light lunches. We ordered the hot chocolate, and were warned it would take about 15 minutes to prepare....because the chocolate has to be melted before it can be served! It came with a jug of hot milk to dilute it - this was needed, it was very rich, but it was oh so good. The best we have ever tasted, and we've tasted some good ones.
We visited 20 months ago, but we're hoping to go again soon, so hopefully I'll be able to write another more up to date report then.
