We visited Kendal on a very cold windy day just after the heavy fall of snow in late March. What a gorgeous place to find! It looks so quaint from the outside we just had to go in. Tempting chocolate treats meant we spent a happy hour or so at a lovely table just by the window & my hubbie particularly enjoyed the hot chocolate. I enjoyed a plain coffee - very good quality & taste. At 6'3" my husband had to avoid the beams at times but even if he had bumped his head (he didn't) it would have been worth it!!

We came to Kendal on a day trip and as I'm a huge chocolate lover I just had to come here! The shop is wonderful and quaint down a lovely cobbled street. The inside feels like you have been transported back in time which I loved. The selection of hot chocolate drinks was pretty amazing and at a great price too, especially when you compare it with major highstreet brands! Not only is the chocolate amazing but the names are too, we had the 'Original Aztec Experience' (five spices) and 'Slave Trader' (banana) both of which were delicious, would most definitely return.

I have always managed to find something for who ever I've been looking for, and often found my self buying something sweet sticky or both for myself, always busy so it has to be good, its a joy to return.
