We walked past this shop and decided to book the chocolate making experience for the next day as we were on a double birthday celebration weekend in York. I was a bit scared but needn't have worried it was a very relaxed atmosphere and great...More

We had savoury items for lunch. Service was slow and the place wasn't busy. £6.95 for cheese on toast with a side salad seems expensive. The other choice, an open sandwich seemed overpriced as well. The plus point was a big teapot of tea. Don't...More

Our York city breaks won't be complete without a visit to York Cocoa House! With an abundance of cafes in the city serving similar chocolate concept, this is definitely one of the best. It's always busy so might have to wait to get seated.

The title says it all really. We both really enjoyed our chocolate modelling workshop. Seb did a great job of walking us through the workshop and spooned in a few chocolatey facts and little tasters as we went. Definitely recommend. Whatever your age.

This is a great spot to grab a cup of cocoa in the afternoon. Choose something different than the standard cocoa flavor. Maybe try Orange Milk Chocolate or Aztec!

This simple class only lasts about 1.5hrs, so it won't eat up too much of your vacation time. The instructor was enthusiastic and I came away inspired to try making my own truffles at home. I think for the instruction and take away bag of...More
