This place is amazing, and behind the chocolate shop is a cute gin bar with an outdoor courtyard area. You can eat your chocolate in the bar

We came across this place by chance when we were walking down from Bo Kaap. Their chocolate truffles are really good. We also tried the chocolate coconut tart. Superb. The service is very nice. We came back to get some chocolate to go :)

Promising little spot with great courtyard behind the main cafe. But the staff. No greeting, no acknowledgment, no smile, nothing. We stood in line to order for a long time and not once did either of the two assistants behind the counter say 'sorry for the wait' or 'we will be with you in a minute' etc. We were there for a second time in the month before reviewing. We were not happy with the first visit for the reasons given above. Today's trip was to sample their much mooted banana bread with liquid chocolate. What a disappointment. The chocolate over tempered and burnt lying like a clump of stodge on top of the pleasant banana bread, not a liquid chocolate at all. i think someone must be re-microwaving the same chocolate time and time again and its a disgusting mess.

The actual counter with chocolate for sale is in no way bountiful and generous. Just a few boring chocolates you could see anywhere and some slabs of chocolate on a shelf for sale. Some very nasty looking cake. We pushed on to try the hot chocolate imagining warm milk with gorgeous lumps of artisanal chocolate melting to make a rich chocolate drink as per you would get when ski-ing. No way. Horrible, thin, sour tasting cup of hot chocolate.

The bus boy who delivered the food and cleared plates was very nice.

With the best will in the world - this place needs a slap.

This is heaven for dark chocolate lovers. I am convincing myself that as it is dark chocolate it is good for me. So I can go every day!! Just love the hot dark chocolate. I am totally bitten on the bran and chocolate muffin too.

Great find and decor is great too.
