I have been wanting to try this Chocolate Bar for a while. Staff were having rather a heated debate when i arrived. I was served fairly quickly and Cacao-Chino came quick which was very nice. I didn't try any of the snacks. Not sure if I would rush back.

Its a quaint little cafe in the mall. We sat there for 15minutes with no acknowledgement or service. Several people waited while staff had a hearty chat

This is the absolute perfect place for a first date or any date. It's situated in a quite area of the mall. Allows a serene atmosphere to talk and enjoy your dates company.

We then waited 15 minutes for a menu. I should mention that they were not busy on the day we visited. We ordered a crepe, a... More

Probably the best chocolate brownie I've had in my life! You could taste it was freshly baked and it had melted belgian chocolate on top! The presentation wasn't the best but it didn't matter at all. The service was excellent. Can't wait to go again and taste the rest of the menu :)

I have been to this establishment a few times, in short, it's addictive weather you prefer a hot chocolate, fruit skewers, chocolate fountain, chocolate brownies or the waffle, you sure to enjoy. Spoilt for choice...

We had the Cacao-Chino and the Hot Chocolate Cacao Deluxe. Both were absolutely divine, especially in the cold weather Durban was experiencing!
