I always enjoy going to Butlers For the relaxed and quiet atmosphere. It’s so cool how they give a free chocolate with a drink. I had a great time with my friend and the staff was very friendly and upbeat.

A smallish chocolate cafe, not far from the iSite info centre. A nice selection of specialty chocolates and wonderful, rich, creamy hot chocolates. A very small selection of savoury and non- chocolate items, but - hey - that's not what you go there for!
