Good soups and chili in the chilly winter months; a whole wall of retro soft drinks in nifty glass bottles; and an outdoor patio for when the weather is nice. I appreciate their evening hours as well for a late dinner when traveling.

I met an old friend for lunch the other day and we ordered sandwiches and ate them outside in the shade of the umbrellas. Everyone was really friendly and the food was good. Neither of us could eat the whole sandwich so we took half of them home. It's a fun place to watch the hustle and bustle of small... More

Anytime I'm in south bend I have to make it to the chocolate cafe. I love the iced chai tea. The kids love the turtles. Also, the special treat is next door at the old-fashioned candy shop. They have many of the ole school candies we grew up on. Great location in downtown allows you to visit and window-shop at... More

Oh no!!! Chocolate seafoam was OLD! Chocolate was turning white after not being tempered property. The inside was thin and tasted nasty. Definitely not what what you would expect from a chocolate store. Other items tasted wrong. Vanilla creams, peanut butter chocolates - all awful. I see why your popcorn line was long and I was the only fool buying... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed their chocolate cheesecake! I was also able to purchase some Chobani Greek Yogurt from them after my morning workout. Very family friendly, with something for everyone...and most any time of day. Highly Recommend!

Since we live a mile or so from here, this can become our go-to for a casual meal when we don't feel like cooking. There are some really yummy things on the menu - Cuban sandwich is deliciously sinful. Which is one reason why I feel there is an aspect that is lacking. While tasty, the ingredients don't seem to...

Stopped in for a quick treat and to purchase popcorn. The chocolate covered pretzels were great and the popcorn was even better. The service was great.

The Chocolate Cafe offers something for everyone. Places to sit and relax and nibble on so many different kinds of chocloate and candy. It's relaxing yet you just want to wander around and get your pic taken with the giant ape!
