Serious chocolatier. Superb cakes and patisserie. Good coffee too. And wonderful hand made chocolate and things to take away. Does some decent savoury food as well but the chocolate is the thing here.

Beautiful French patisserie and cakes for reasonable prices. Plenty of seating and very friendly. Also great coffee and hot chocolate. There is also treats and water for doggies although they need to stay at the outside tables.
