Boon is THE Hasselt chocolatier. Not only can you eat and drink their wonderful chocolates (teas, coffees also) you can usually see them being made. There are lots of other chocolate shops in Hasselt (the large Belgian makers - Neuhaus, Leonidas with 3 shops - it's Belgium after all), but Boon is the local and at least as good, if... More

On top of everything, you always get a few chocolates to try and a nice chocolate mousse. You will have your chocolate for the week there! Make sure to give it a... More

My favourite place in my home town. There are not that many places, so you probably need to wait a bit. Always very kind to us. I like the extensive coffee, chocolate and tea menu. Love love love love love it. There is also the chocolate shop and you can see how the chocolate is made.

What a lovely place to have a hot chocolat! Not the best one I ever had (just my personal taste), but the many treats, chocolat mousse and chocolat cookies made more than up for that! Cosy decor and super friendly hostess! I will definitely come back here again!

Less than EUR6 for the most delicious mocha with whipped cream, chocolate mousse taster and two artisan chocolates - delicious and such good value. The seating area is small, but you are not rushed at all. Only slight criticism is that the chocolates on display had no prices - so I have no idea whether or not they were good... More

Two visits to the city of Hasselt, during which, unfortunately, the place was closed. So, third time lucky, we would finally have the chance to sip the famous hot chocolate. Still half an hour before closing time, however, we were told in a rather blunt way we were simply not allowed in as that would be too much of an... More

This place is all about chocolate. When you order a coffee, tea or hot chocolate you always get a small chocolate mousse and 2 chocolates as a treat. They have a large selection of kinds of coffee and tea but the hot chocolate is to die for !

The staff is so wonderful. For the money it is worth it because you get a loooot of chocolate. You can see that everyone in this company loves what they do.

We stopped by this shop to sample their chocolates. Friendly atmosphere and great staff, unique chocolate art for sale, and viewing through a large glass window of the chocolate making process. And the chocolates themselves? Heavenly. Should have purchased even more to take back to the States since we couldn't help but eat most of them ourselves!
