The tour takes around 1 1/4 hours. Our guide was great, knowledgable and friendly. Kids had fun making their chocolate lolly. Cafe is very small, not helped by people sitting on 1 side of the tables. Shame as the boys wanted to try the fondue.

Monk Bar may be on the Shambles but the chocolate inside is anything but! The variety and quality of the chocolates are excellent and the hot drinking chocolate is fantastic. Our favourite is the chilli flavoured one.

Best chocolates in York and, to be completely honest, better than lots of the chocolates I had in Bruges last summer. A true York gem, and a family run business too. Would definitely recommend.

These chocolates are amongst the best I've tasted and you can make your very own selection from the counter.

Yes, thry do have a lot of amazing looking troufles, and chocolate bars, but seriously... the lime cheesecake ice cream is the best thing you'll have all day 👌🏼

We tried four different kinds of truffles - cherry, cognac, mocca, amaretto. All of them were outstanding. The nicest hostess, very pretty interior and tasteful presentation of exclusive homemade chocolates certainly add to the charms of this wonderful little chocolate shop.

My wife and I have been fortunate enough to taste quite a lot of good chocolate- we even once lived near a chocolate factory- and the bar we bought from this shop is up there with the best. Excellent value for money too. The star...More

The truffles here are to die for! I purchased a bag of 3 for a small amount of money. They were so good! I was unsure of which ones to get. The woman who was behind the counter told me one of her favorites—it ended...More

Everyone visits the Shambles area, understandably. We stopped in to buy chocolate; incredibly good but pricey.
