Although very expensive this was the best Mocha I have had since travelling in Europe. The coffee was delicious and obviously the chocolate of very high quality. Even the coffee art on the top was done well. The setting is lovely as it is a very old building. The bathroom is spectacular with the old wrought iron door handle, stone... More

This cozy cafe never fails to deliver. One could call me a chocolate snob and this gem in Hahndorf ticks all the boxes. I enjoyed a Venezuelan, single source hot chocolate. The perfect drink for a cold/rainy autumn day. I was in chocolate heaven. The coffees here are also yummy. Be sure to stop by. You cannot miss their bright... More

We had waffles, hot chocolate and mocha which were all really good. The lady working there was very friendly too.

Hubby and i (and our family) have been regulars for a while and everything has always been absolutely flawless! About 8-9 months ago, my IBS informed me that i can't tolerate full cream normal milk in big 250ml+ doses.

Thank you so very much for the lovely words and your continued support! It's having customers like you and your lovely husband that makes being in hospitality worthwhile. I look forward to seeing both of you (and the rest of your family again)! :) More

Absolutely Magnificent products. So very friendly and Professional. Just a quick note: I was in Choc No5 when the when the group who made the poor review today was in. I was totally disgusted that this group of people used the cafe as a meeting place, used the facilities, took us space that is paying customers needed and they never... More

Thanks so much for your support! It's actually quite embarrassing when people behave as badly as those "table occupiers" did (not having bought anything they can't in truth be called customers!!). We look forward to welcoming you again :) More

Made it very clear we we not welcome to the point of turning up the heavy metal music and accusing us of driving away other customers. In fact the other customer was my partner who felt uncomfortable and didn't like anything on the menu so said I am leaving while she had her meeting as an excuse. No offer of... More

Emma - just so everyone knows the real story, here are the facts: First and foremost, you were NOT a customer! You joined two other customers of mine at their table. So did another older gentleman. I was not aware that the customer who left was your partner. He wanted to sit in the other room which we do not... More

Tempted by the banana waffle but chose the chocolate brownie, extremely moist and fresh. Sometimes I find a Brownie dry & doughy but not at Chocolate No 5. Their desserts are the best.

We love the hot chocolates, iced chocolates and all chocolates there really. Quite expensive and they do charge for babycinos. Service is really average to poor though. We went when the Hahndorf night markets were on, and they clearly didn't want people there. They wouldn't serve anything that couldn't be done in a paper cup (which included iced chocolates). Someone... More

It's very clear that this was your first ever visit to Chocolate @ No. 5. Appalling is a very strong word to use and our service is by no means poor never mind appalling. You were one amongst 20000 people that arrived in Hahndorf and you have no idea how an influx of that magnitude affects the operation of each... More

Hasty experience while the owner or manager grumbled repeatedly that they had closed 15 minutes ago! Arrived right on closing time and were grudgingly allowed to buy take away hot chocolate. It was very nice but in spite of vacating the shop to sit on a plastic chair outside in the shade for a few minutes (I did ask) we... More

So glad you enjoyed the hot chocolate :) We had in fact already closed when you and your family arrived. We know how disappointing that can be for a customer which is why (in our discretion) we SOMETIMES serve takeaway hot drinks whilst we are still in the process of packing up. It is unrealistic for you to expect a... More
