Nice place, seating is kind of strange. Very up scale. They make goodies on site and that's pretty cool. The stuff they make is very good. This is more of a go have a drink and upscale meal with the ladies or office people. Not a burger and fries joint, looks like it belongs in upscale New York. :)

Bunch of us girls went out and came here for a drink. First time here. Our drinks were good. It was busy. Hopefully they expand so it's no so full. Would recommend coming here.

Great place of a Vanilla Frappe Coffee and some pastry. A little on the expensive side but stays open late which is a major bonus in a small town where a lot of places close up early.

My wife and I stopped in for an early supper with dessert and coffee after a co-worker suggested trying it out.... We were pleasantly surprised on all items we had. My wife had a lot of gluten free options but settled on the Pesto Bella. It was so good she had to confirm that it was indeed gluten free! My... More

I hate to write this because I feel like as a local it is one of the best hidden gems in Grand Island. Best coffee in town, great atmosphere and food, and yes wonderful chocolate. I especially like when they have musical artists play at night.

This is a small get-away in the older part of town. We enjoyed two lattes and coconut cake, baked on site they said. The cake was good and moist. The coffee was equally tastee and came in ceramic mugs, a nice treat. The total was $10.50, a bit expensive but a good treat

We stopped here on our road trip. The place is very nicely decorated and has a nice menu with healthy and heavier options alike. The bleu cheese salad and the chicken wrap are tasty. I tried their espresso and chocolate cake (it's called the Chocolate Bar after all) and was not disappointed. The other desserts also look great. Service was... More

Truthfully, all I've ever had here are the dessert & coffee. But both are quite a bit better than any other place in town. The Vietnamese coffee is a particular favorite. Beyond the food, the atmosphere, music, etc. are consistently well done.

Our family ordered a preordered cake for a special occasion for FIFTY dollars and picked up a day before the event. Although the cakes are delicious, the Chocolate Bar did absolutely zero decor and the cake came out as pictured. PLAIN WHITE. This is unacceptable for a party. After calling the restaurant we were offered no refund and the staff... More

@ehalliburton, I am so sorry to hear of your disappointment. We strive everyday to make sure our customers leave happy and to be a highlight in their day. Our Almond Butter Cake decor is minimalist and is focused mainly on the sides but we do love to take special orders and requests for customization. If you're willing we'd love the... More

Simple food options of sandwiches, soup, and salads, deserts and drinks - coffee and adult beverages. Nice options and quality fare. Recommend for a date night but they also have kids menu for the whole family.
