We popped in on World Chocolate Day. We all agreed - their cappuccinos are great! I had a slice of the dark chocolate cake. It was very tasty and not too sweet but I would have preferred it a bit more moist though. My husband...More

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.
