Honest Chocolate is a small artisanal chocolate company based in Cape Town, South Africa. All our chocolate is hand crafted in small batches using traditional, old school chocolate making methods, including hand tempering the chocolate on a granite slab tabletop and hand dipping each chocolate bonbon. The bonbons are then boxed up and the slabs individually wrapped using eco friendly paper. Most chocolate is made from roasted cacao, however we use organic, raw cacao, which is higher in antioxidants and therefore even better for you than regular dark chocolate. The cacao is ethically sourced from Ecuador. There are also no preservatives, additives or emulsifiers in our chocolate and it is free of dairy and processed sugar (instead of sugar we use Agave Nectar which has a very low GI).

We stopped by for a chocolate and some coffee. Both were excellent. Plenty other choices as well, they bake their cakes on site, which is great. Overall, great choice for a dessert around downtown.

Small hipster hangout spot with an amazingly beautiful "Italian styled" courtyard serving excellent moist chocolate cake. The gin bar is a nice addition but unfortunately it's closed on Sundays

Came here on a Sunday afternoon and overall had a good experience. We ordered one tall classic hot chocolate (32.00R), one tall Mexican spice hot chocolate (32.00R), and one chocolate cheesecake which arrived very late (40.00R). Nice place though staff should be more switched on.

It was so good we went 3 times over the course of 4 days. You can't go wrong with any of the selections and they serve iced coffee the New York way (coffee over ice without a scoop of ice cream).

Visited the shop at Woodstock exchange and ended up paying R94.00 for 6 chocolate bonbons! It tasted ok but certainly not worth R16 a bonbon...
