We happened upon this place by sheer accident and I had to go in. We each bought a dessert (I got peanut butter chocolate cake and my friend got carrot cake). We went back to the hotel and just died from the decadence of the cakes. Amazingly friendly staff, too!

The chocolate cafe is chocolate heaven. If you love chocolate, or if you even like chocolate, you should definitely go. The cakes are ginormous. The ice cream is divine. If I drank coffee, I'd probably love it too.

Every time my sister visits, we go to the chocolate cafe. We have gotten coffee, ice cream, and a ridiculous assortment of cakes and pies here. Every single thing we have had here is fantastic. Sometimes we get so much that we feel a little chocolate-logged after (like water-logged--get it?). Their stuff is so rich! If you love chocolate, this... More

The chocolate was just average. But, we went back that night and the ice cream was fantastic. They were understaffed. But, the staff that was there was very friendly. Unfortunately, the staffing led to a dirty store.

The desserts are beautiful but they don't taste as great as they look. The six layer chocolate cake was dry and had a bland flavor and then cost $10.00! The ice cream was good but overpriced. Lastly the cheesecake did not live up to the price tag.

It was an awfully hot day, I was just looking for Airconditioning & water the Chocolate Cafe was a fantastic find!!! Although it is small, the staff is very kind & accommodating! They had items to eat for lunch & of course luscious chocolate goodies. If you get the chance stop by, you won't be disappointed.

The cafe only serve hot choclate and on the day that I went there, it's really hot so I decided that I need cold drinks so I ordered ice coffee instead. I tried blueberry cheese cake and it is so good.

My husband, parents and I stopped here for a cool afternoon treat. There were 28 flavors of ice cream to choose from and the staff were friendly and offered as many samples as we wanted. The portions were huge and it was fun to sit outside and enjoy the people watching in monument circle.

There were lots of chocolate choices Great place for dessert (hot chocolate in winter). It was a little small so it got crowded with only one person waiting on people at the chocolate counter. Chocolates ended up costing approximately $1 each. They also serve ice cream which people seemed to be enjoying, but we were too busy picking out chocolates... More
