“Great Hot Chocolate”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

This is one my regular haunts and serves fabulous hot chocolate, cakes, ice cream, and chocolates. It is very small and so it can be hard to get a table at weekends but it is well worth the effort.

“Superb!”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Great value for good money. Wonderful home-make cakes and great atmospehere - it's one of the must-visit places in Edinburgh. It's small enough to have an intimate conversation, but also big enough to invite a couple of friends and spend lovely time together. A decent variety of hot chocolates to choose from, my favourite is dark chocolate with fruit and churros. You can also buy an excellent quality chocolate with different ingredients. Delicioso!

“Fantastic hot chocolate”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Hot chocolate is spot on, served in a very satisfying mug that keeps it beautifully hot for a long time, something much appreciated! The décor is charming & cosy.

The cake was pretty good too, but the star was definitely the hot chocolate. I went for classic on my first visit, hope to be back to try some of the many other varieties on offer.

“Fabulous and oh so chocolatey”
Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

I love the Chocolate Tree - where else in Edinburgh could you find 9 different kinds of drinking chocolate 'on draught', not to mention an amazing array of chocolate cakes and other delicacies. Atmosphere is super as well, slightly grungy but really welcoming and peaceful.
