In November 2012, I wrote a review about Cafe le Chocolatier and concluded that it was "Not the nicest but certainly the priciest". Other reviewers were obviously in agreement. Well, last week, I was in Franschhoek and decided to see whether matters had improved. Although not totally unexpected, I found the owner had closed shop. No one wishes any small... More

Stopped of here for a spot of chocolate tasting whilst in Franschhoek, not really a tasting at all, nothing was explained to us, we just had to read the very brief descriptions & guess where they were from/ what was in them etc!

We had had a wonderful lunch in Franschoek and popped in here to buy a few chocolates as a treat on the way home. We found the chocolates very average for home made confectionery and very expensive. The looked nice but really were not very special at all. A very dissappointing experience.

We visit F/hoek regularly and had been keen to visit this restaurant for some time. The interior is beautiful but that is the only positive comment I can make for this establishment. We arrived on a Sunday morning at 9am for breakfast. The restaurant was empty barring the manageress who was completing paperwork at one of the tables whilst chatting... More

We had great coffee and cake at Cafe le chocolatier in Franschoek. The chocolate mousse cake is really really special. Very friendly service and lovely atmosphere. The selection of white chocolate and chocolate mousse cake, chocolate brownies and triple chocolate muffins is a chocolate lover's dream.
