“For chocolate lovers and chocolate likers alike”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Though admittedly not the biggest fan of chocolate, this establishment hit the spot. The atmosphere is quaint and comfortable, the oaxaca was excellent, and the shortbread was buttery perfection (although, next time, I'll indulge in a slice of one of their divine-looking cakes).

“Heaven”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Ok, very boho chic eclectic casual place. Chocolate items are off the hook. I had chocolate mousse tonight - awesome, got a gluten free cookie to go for tomorrow then plan on the Chocolate Creme Brûlée later this week.

“for all chocoholics”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Never thought I would be able to drink chocolate, but that is exactly what I did here. Order the sipping chocolate and that will give you that chocolate fix you desire. They are open late, and also serve beers with chocolate and a vareity of chocolate desserts. If you love chocolate, this place is for you!

“I'm rather sorry everyone else has caught on...”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I don't think they have any "off" hours anymore, which is not a bad problem for a business to have. I don't mind standing in line, though, because there is chocolate at the end! The hot chocolate is incredible, the ginger cookies are chewy and if someone will share, the chocolate stout cake goes down easy. Good coffee, too, and they actually make cold-brew iced coffee instead of simply pouring hot coffee over ice like almost everyone else outside of Louisiana. I like the truffles well enough but the salted honey caramels are my favorites. Someday, I'll screw up the courage to try the beverage with the beer and chocolate ice cream, but I'm not there yet.

“Best brownie ever”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

The service was prompt, the food (we got a brownie and macaroon) were the best we have ever tasted. Good coffee too,
