The place was recommended to us by one of our guides. This was a very good piece of advice that she gave us. Neat place, very good drinks and nice staff. I wish I had found out about that place earlier during our stay!

Nice atmosphere (there are several of them; i frequented 38th & 5th). The chocolate is good. The brownies are OK - as a dark chocolate lover they weren't quite chocolate-y enough for me But what stood out were the great Americanos, and they even had soy milk. Hurray!

A nice local alternative to the giant US chain, does good coffee to have in or takeaway. Also sell chocolate, and chocolate-based products such as shampoo and soap, which smell fantastic and are nice to use.

If you are a coffee lover, then this is the place for you. I like my coffee strong, hence adding an extra shot to the latte was key. Their cheesecake with chocolate swirl on top was delicious. Bought a box of mixed chocolates for my colleagues and everyone loved them.

Some of the best chocolate I've had. Their brownies are amazing too. They also have lots of great things to bring home for yourself or as gifts. I picked up some chocolate soap while there. Very well priced too!
