“Drink this Dark Hot Chocolate”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

This place was on my walking route for a recent conference, so we stopped in one day. The dark drinking hot chocolate was excellent. It was rich and not too sweet. The pastries were OK, but nothing special. The service was slow and seemed pretty haphazard--it was not obvious who should get what order when it was called and dumped on the counter, and the staff did not seem to care in the least that customers were confused. But the taste of the rich hot cocoa on a chilly day was worth the price.

“Vancouver's lil secret...”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

You must go here and have the Spicy drinking Hot Chocolate!! It really is just that good!! As well they make their own chocolate bars with a variety of different amazing flavours. The setting is lovely, tucked away, yet you are in the heart of the city!! Their coffee is excellent but for all those chocolate fans...you're going to love this place!

“Chocolate overload”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Amazing selection of chocolate drinks and treats in a lovely setting. Service was slow and an error was made but once we got everything it was great. The coffee was excellent (long americano) and the small belgian waffles were perfect in size and taste. My son had the expensive drinking chocolate but is was honestly like drinking a chocolate bar - warm and rich and delicious.
A lovely treat on a chilly Sunday afternoon. $27 for 4 drinks and 4 small treats.

“Enjoyable.”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

We really enjoyed this cafe of chocolate! Three of us went and shared 2 "personal" chocolate fondues, we thought it was quite good. We prefer a thicker fondue, but it was still very tasty with a nice assortment of dipping items (mandarin oranges, sponge cake, bananas, apple). We also thought the coffee was very good. It's a tad pricey, but I would guess their rent is as well, prime downtown location.
