Having seen a feature on the chocolates at Cocomaya in a magazine I had already decided to visit but didn't know they also had a bakery/cafe attached. This review is about the Connaught Street branch but I'm sure they all maintain the same high standard.
I chose a fresh soup with seeded bread & earl grey tea as a mid afternoon snack. The soup was really wholesome & full of flavour & the bread was amazing! The tea was loose leaf & served in a china tea pot with matching (or fashionably mis-matching) cup & saucer, perfect.
Having finished eating & drinking I went next door to buy some of the chocolates, all of which were beautifully presented & extremely good quality with some original flavours to complement the classics, it was hard not to buy one of everything, actually think I pretty much did buy one of everything..! Unfortunately I don't think you can buy the individual chocolates online yet only some of the bars, but hopefully soon. I also bought some of the marmalade & jam which were equally impressive, yes the products are expensive but they are delicious, so worth it for a treat once in a while, or as gifts - including to yourself of course.
It was one of the nicest London cafe/shop experiences I have had in a long while, the staff were really friendly & helpful, both in the bakey & in the chocolate shop next door & the food, drinks & chocolates were all fantastic. Will definitely be visiting again.
