I love chocolate, to drink and to eat. This establishment takes chocolate very seriously. It is run by an award winning chocolatier who also runs chocolate and patisserie cooking classes on the upper floor. Coffee and tea are on sale but for me the star of the show was the hot chocolate. Most cafes make their chocolate special by adding... More

We stopped off at Cocoa Black during a weekend break in Peebles. We were amazed at the fantastic range of first class patisserie. I've not seen cakes of this variety and standard outside of France. They tasted amazing too but weren't heavy or stodgy. I had a caramel hot chocolate and a florentine biscuit while my husband had coffee and... More

My wife and I enjoyed our 2nd visit to cocoa black. Both of our cakes were EXCELLENT. I further to that had a caramel hot chocolate and my wife a latte. We felt that both lacked any real taste and were a tad disappointed. Overall we will definitely return.

I had a tasty cappuccino and yummy Carmel Cake (can't remember the exact name, but it is pictured below). My mom had a Delicious hot chocolate. The staff was super smiley and very friendly. I bought 4 of the hand-made Salted Carmel Chocolate bars for our friends back home. Everyone loved them. We really liked CoCo Black. =)
