This place is a must for chocolate lovers, the chocolate smell in the shop was wonderful as was the delicious chocolates. The cafe food is exceptional with plenty of choice. Gift shop and museum worth a visit.

We visited the chocolate museum first, which was interesting and was good to have had a questionnaire for the children to complete. The highlight was definitely the cafe though. We walked in, chose our "tarts / pies" and were then asked if we'd like them...More

Expensive but you do pay for good chocolate. A little museum attached to the gift shop too, with really handy 'things' as well as the usual gifts. Coffee was nice from the cafe.
