A chocolate lovers delight! We paid several visits to the shop and cafe! Staff very helpful and offer samples! Able to view those working in the factory. Many flavours to choose from. Cafe offers nice balance of food and coffee. You must visit.

Enjoyed a great brunch here. It was pouring rain but the courtyard was a nice and spacious place to relax. Portions were very big. I had the eggs benny and it was excellent. The chocolate shop is nice to browse as well.

Service at Bennetts is personal from the minute you arrive, the young man who greeted our party has struck the right mix of casual professionalism. We enjoyed breakfast there, which was terrific - one of the best I've enjoyed at any similar café. And the...More
