The Chocolate Cafe is a great place to get wonderful chocolate and great treats, as well as great coffee. There is outside seating during the summer months. Very relaxing and laid back atmosphere.

You really have to be in the right frame of mind to get involved with the desserts here. And I use *involved* in an appropriate sense. These are large and have stratospheric sugar levels, so much so that you have to sometimes work to discern the fleeting taste of chocolate. The complaints about the tweensy-looking staff are most likely due to lack of training, or maybe it's the air of disinterest, or both. In sum, the value is a solid 'meh,' but to be fair, another visit may be in order.

This was a fun place to visit. Everything in the display cases looked awesome to this chocolate lover! We were there on a chilly July afternoon and ordered hot chocolate. The hot chocolate was amazing! One of the best I have had. We also purchased two different slices of cake to take back to our room. They were huge and we couldn't wait to dive in. We were very disappointed. They did not taste nearly as good as they looked. They were pretty much all icing and filling with no cake. Much too rich to enjoy and I am a chocoholic! They were a bit pricey and we hated to throw them out but really only ate a few bites of each.

An expensive place for food that's mediocre on its good days and lousy sometime. I've only been here more than once because my friend keep having half-price coupons but even at half price it's not worth it.

Enjoy a sandwich, salad, or especially enjoy an "old time bottle of soda". Remember Dog and Suds Root beer, Green River, Black Cherry? Then...enjoy your ice cream, specialty coffee or a delicious chocolate convection..We had the choc. covered Oreo and Choc covered raisins. Then, walk it off in quaint St. Joe shopping or down to beautiful Silver Beach for a walk along the beach...yes, clean water and sand beach! Lovely day trip.
