Some Reviews:

"After spending a week in Italy, I have been searching for a truly authentic gelato shop.  They have a great display of flavors and are open late. You can get three flavors in a single cup.  I had the hazelnut, nutella creme, and mixed berry.  I can't even begin to tell you what to get because everything I have had here has been so creamy and delicious and I am sure whatever you choose to order, you will be very satisfied."

"Awesome crepes! I loved their ricotta cheese and olive topenade bruschetta! It was so delicious. I did not even get to try their chocolates because I was so into their main dishes. I will definitely come back again for dessert."

"My wife and I had panini for lunch along with some bruschetta and gelato.  Absolutely delicious.  The service was fast and very friendly, even for being there right at lunch time on a Friday.  The unique flavors of gelato are worth a try (especially the Cayenne Chocolate blended with the Orange Chocolate).  They also have Republic of Tea products, which I am a big fan of."

We cherish the idea of coddling you with the quality of our products. At Chocolat, the day begins with our warm, daily fresh made croissants stuffed with delicious cream, Chantilly or apricot jam. Or what about our home-baked cakes in the authentic Chocolat-style? Not to mention our fragrant cocoa ganache with tasty seasonal fruits, the little fondant cakes baked by the chocolate "maestri".

In winter, let us warm up your body and soul with our selection of velvety hot chocolates, pure or mixed with sensual oriental spices. And don't forget to savor our coffee, a blending of two ever-flirting flavors of chocolate and coffee, thanks to the skilled use of crème and milk foam.

We are now open at 9am serving crepes with eggs, ham and cheese. We also serve toast with egg, ham and cheese, along with baked on premises croissants, danishes and muffins.


Ice Creams

To understand the quality of our ice cream, it is important to know some of the sweet details. We use 6 tons of cocoa per year and our chocolate mixtures are made from six different qualities of cocoa powder from all over the world, mainly Africa and South America. We do not compromise the quality of our ice cream: our dark chocolate is very strong, bitter and powerful. For you and for all of us, who cannot resist this magic ''food for the gods.''
If the quality of cocoa butter makes the difference in chocolate ice cream, our cream flavors are intimate unions of milk, fresh cream, honey-covered hazelnuts, poppy seed and many more ingredients, including the "Round and Gentle," the unique hazelnut of the Langhe area, in Italy. You can enjoy it alone or mixed with the "Green Gold" of Bronte, the famous pistachio in Sicily.
For our fruit flavors, we love simplicity: only savory fresh fruits, water and sugar.
