While sightseeing Basel this is the perfect place to stop for a good warm up with energy: primarily from the AMAZING warm chocolate selection as well as the TO DIE FOR chocolate cake and secondly the warm atmosphere made by the people(staff) there! A place that I would come by during all seasons, is well located and easy to be... More

The choices for hot chocolate are endless... I still have not managed to try them all. There is also a selection of very tasty cakes, and exotic types of chocolate in the shop.

would not let keep the buggy with baby asleep in it near us. Had to park away from the table as not to hinder service. Place was empty. So we left.

I live in Basel as an ex pat and discovered this little gem! Or so I thought! I went in on a few occasions with my very well behaved toddler and other friends with children who were equally as well behaved. I often felt we were being watched and was surprised one day when my friend was told that she... More

Wonderful hot chocolate completely spoilt by the rudeness of the owner. She obviously just doesn't like children she doesn't like people !

Best hot chocolate in Basel, the Brownie was a bit disappointing but the other cakes I have tried there were good. You can see that the owners have created this shop and cafe with heart and the nostalgic interior design is lovely.

If you are visiting Basel and if you like chocolate in any form, you will just love this cafe. The front part of the cafe is filled with fair trade chocolate from the whole world and I am certain that there will be something you will find, which you will love, especially as a present. At the back of the... More

This stylish café is one of my favourites in Basel, a chocolate paradise. The products are carefully selected and imported from around the globe. They make the perfect gift, even (especially?) for a Swiss friend since you will find bars of beautifully packaged chocolate, heavenly combined with flavours you thought unlikely. It is the perfect place to go Christmas and... More
