Overview

Co Couture has been creating premium chocolates and chocolate products right in the heart of Belfast, less than 100m from City Hall, since 2008. Their luxurious wares are handcrafted in small batches using only the finest raw ingredients; local produce where possible and equitably-traded products otherwise. Their chocolate is all gluten-free and refined-sugar-free, so much healthier than one might expect. Can you imagine a chocolate brownie with less calories than a banana? Co Couture have made it a reality. They’ve also created a range of dairy-free chocolates and highly sought-after vegetarian marshmallows; a recipe which took 2 years to perfect. Everything from Co Couture is made using exquisite Madagascan chocolate to ensure the ultimate taste experience. As the chocolate is RaiseTrade (one step above FairTrade), it is helping Madagascar to add further skills and wealth per capita, as well as increasing tax revenues to apply to the nation's developmental needs. So far Co Couture has secured over 20 prestigious national and international awards, including the Great Taste Awards Northern Ireland Speciality Producer Champion 2008, runner-up for Best Independent Retailer in the UK (top 4 in NI) at the Observer Food Awards 2013, and 10 medals at the Academy of Chocolate awards from 2009-2015. They also won a silver medal at the 2014 International Chocolate Awards, which has put Co Couture within the top 40 chocolateries in the world. They are currently ranked top 4 in the UK and number 1 in Ireland.

Have bought chocolates from this shop before and called in recently for hot chocolate (70%), coffee and truffles. All delicious. Staff friendly. Great products. Atmosphere a perhaps little lacking, although I appreciate this isn't primarily a cafe.

Didn’t know it existed. Felt like a secret underground hideaway. A very cute little place and the hot choc was gorgeous (proper grownup, not sickly sweet commercial stuff). Brownie was divine. 3 things which I found negative and could be easily improved if anyone cares:...More

Stumbled upon this lovely little shop, tucked away below stairs near the City Hall, by accident. Glad we did, though, because the chocolates they make here are really very good. They have a few tables where you can drink tea or, even better, their 60...More

If you are visiting the shop to buy some chocolate it tastes good but I was strongly advise against wasting your money on the Chocolate Masterclass. Firstly the kitchen area is far too small for the amount of people squeezed into it. All you do...More

Sweet little chocolate and coffee shop, smack bang in the centre of Belfast. It has good natural light, despite being basement level. Simple and tasteful decor. Feels fresh. The chocolate is to die for. Staff very friendly and helpful. They could do with less banging...More
