I've wanted to try this place for aaaaaaaaages because its so hard to find good quality hot chocolate in UK which isn't just frothy milk with cream on top. Anyway I wasn't disappointed with the flavour and quality, I accompanied this with a couple of home made truffles which were to die for.

I don't think the prices of the truffles are unreasonable, they are superb quality....and anyone who has tried to make truffles before will know that it is time consuming and difficult.

This is a perfect example of quality over quantity and chocolate purists will love it. It is quite small and cosy which can be a bit intimidating if your shy but don't let this put you off, the staff were very warm and friendly

I felt as though I was stepping into the film set of Chocolat. What a great find. There only three or four tables but that's what I liked about it - very sociable as everyone chats to each other. Great décor - white floor boards and very dark walls - so atmospheric. And Lucy!!! She is just perfect for this place - very knowledgable, fun and friendly. Can't wait to go back.

Fantastic little find in the heart of the Northern Quarter.
I had the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate priced at just over £3 it was worth every penny. Simply delicious.
Also had two of the chocolates. A Banoffee and a Stem Ginger both of which were Devine. I will definitely be returning. The 4 tables make for a very intimate experience but that adds to the character.

Tricky to find for a manchester novice, but worth the hunt.
Tucked away on a little side street, just 4 tiny tables but my word what a find. If you love chocolate pay a visit. Small but perfectly formed menu, coffee, tea or a divine hot chocolate (several flavours including salted caramel, chilli hot chocolate and aztec spice) and to go with it, some of the FABulous flourless chocloate cake OR one of their lovely brownies with a choice of topping. We had the pistachio brownie. A slice of the chocolate cake will set you back £4 so not cheap, BUT one slice will serve two people as it is very rich.
Atmosphere is lovely, owner/chocolate maker, lovely lady in 50s dress and very friendly male. Dark brown walls add to the chocolately ambience.
If you've not quite had enough chocolate by this point, take some of the pink salt caramel chocolates home with you, and experience the wonderful explosion of taste as their molten centre. Expensive at £1.40 per chocolate, but go on ... treat yourself!

Been meaning to try this place for ages & popped in with a couple of girlfriends for an afternoon hot choc. It's different & very good. I had the aztec hot choc & we shared some of the handmade truffles - all very adult & decadent. Looking forward to trying some more treats again soon I hope!
