This tiny, but friendly establishment deserves to do well. Good coffee, good attitude and tasty eats, all making for a gem in the small town of Ellon.

I go to the chocolate bar regularly for catch ups with friends. Always willing to encourage my extra shot of coffee obsession ☕️☕️. Great scones and home bakes and great selection of handmade chocolates ideal for last minute gift.
