Such good hot chocolate with a ton of flavor options! Service was so great as well! They allowed me to sample the hot chocolate before buying because it was my first time.

Their pure hot chocolate is smooth and delicious and when combined with their freshly made churros is a dangerously good combination. Their milkshakes are great too. I’ve not tried the waffles but they look incredibly good. They gave us a sample cup of the hot...More

Absolutely wonderful! Baileys milkshake was wonderful and my strawberry, cinnamon and maple syrup waffle was really scrummy. Definitely worth a visit or two.

We tried three times to visit this place, once it was shut , second it had a power failure and at last third time lucky. We had the double-stack waffle lemon meringue for bottom and cherry for top, very tasty indeed worth the waitMore

Description
ChoccoBar is an independent, contemporary coffee shop & hot chocolate house offering all the usual coffee shop refinements with a few light bites, great cakes & gorgeous waffles. The similarity stops there! As you may realise from the name, ChoccoBar specialises in REAL Hot Chocolate but with a twist. Our chocolate is made continental style, thick & Indulgent. We use a blend of real Belgian chocolate without the use of any powders so its good all the way to the bottom. The 'twist' is that we also offer a wide range of flavour essences to add a unique dimension to your drinking experience. 'Chocolate to talk about' To find us: we're in the middle of Quarry Rigg Shopping Centre, just off Lake Road, Bowness. The neares public car park is by the cinema LA23 3BJ 40m away from us or on street parking.
