Walk inside and breathe in the aromas! We use the finest ingredients, often (as in our triple certified coffees), fair-trade and organic, but really, it's all about the taste - a little taste of heaven!

“hot chocolate to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

really quaint little gem, we had a taster pot of truffles and a hot chocolate for £5. Sat outside on the deck in the wind with some very rich and delicious purchases. lovely wee stopover to warm you up. Staff were also lovely and very helpful

“Chocoholic heaven”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Really nice little find, good selection of truffles to suit all palates, coffee grand but not as amazing as the chocolate. Alas the freshness meant that I did not buy as much as I might have but will check their website to see if what they have on line. Oh toilets also very clean. Located in a low complex slightly industrial set up but go and enjoy, if you like good chocolate.

“An experiece!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Chocolate heaven, very slick service and reasonably priced. You don't just have to love hot gooey choc drinks, they do great coffee as well plus Earl Grey tea!! Fine selection of quality chocs to buy also. If you venture up to Durness give it a try.
