I've been here several times with my husband. It's a good place for treats. There are a variety of fudge, chocolate pieces, ice cream, slice of pie, cake by the slice, and holiday themed treats. There is also hot/cold drinks available including coffee or hot chocolate. Our favorites: Deep dish pecan pie - He loves the deep dish pecan pie.... More

I always take out of town guests to this place. I love the selection and the cake always delivers on taste. I have tried some other places - do not compare.

Only go here if you afford the calories because your best intentions will be thrown out the door after the chocolatey smell hits you. Delicious decadence, huge pieces of cake, ice cream, candy. Not cheap - but so worth it. Be sure to share, too much for one person.

I moved away from the area and had not been to this place for around five years. After moving back to Houston, I had the opportunity to visit again after dinner one evening. The shop was as attractive as ever (I remember when it was just one room before they added the coffeehouse area). I really wanted to have some... More

This place is for those serious about chocolate. 4 layer cakes of monstrous proportions. My family of 5 struggled to finish just one slice. It was worth every penny. They offer chocolate bon bons, ice cream, real hot chocolate, cookies, and even deep dish pecan pie. Perfect place to take a date or for an after dinner treat!

Third visit wasn't as good. My 'bodacious brownie' had quite dry and stale ends. Wife and kids had better luck with 'Strawberry cheese cake' and ' Flantastic cheese cake'. Nice and bustling atmosphere with new freshman class at Rice village.

The cakes we ate tasted pretty good except the deep dish chocolate pecan cake. It was dry in the center and I am not sure what type of crust they used. The Boston Creme pie cake and Turtle chocolate cheese cake tastes pretty good along with some of the ice cream samples. They have tons of other chocolate candies to... More

I am not a big fan of chocolate but my wife is, the only reason we go back here is for the snowberry icecream - strawberry ish icecream with chocolate chips. I would rate the snowberry icecream a 4 star and the other offerings are just average
