I normally don't give high rating on any places til now. My friend and I were exploring the neighbourhood along E. Hastings and saw the sign. It looked very inviting and decided to check it out. It was such a cute little cafe that specialized in chocolate. They also serve breakfast and lunch. The owner came out and greeted us. She took the time to explained and show off her display of chocolates. I am not a chocolate fan as I find it too sweet for my liking.
I was impressed with the quality of her chocolates. It was so elegant looking and artistically made that it was too nice to be eaten. Anyway, I bought myself a small box and pick out the chocolates. It wasn't cheap. But I rarely eat chocolates, so this is good value for me and it is VERY good quality chocolate. Its not sickening sweet.
I also decided to tried out the Ancient Aztec hot chocolate. Man, was it ever good! This hot chocolate is incredible and the price is similiar to Starbucks hot chocolate. I used to be a hot chocolate fan at Starbucks esp. their salt taffy hot chocolate (half sweet). But after tasting the ancient aztec which by the way is unsweetened!! I don't think I'll be going back to Starbucks.
I am planning to go back to try out their other hot chocolates soon. So, to all chocolates lovers, you have to try out their hot chocolate.
My husband and I experienced the Classic Chocolate High Tea and were amazed at the excellent service, the eclectic, warm and cozy decor, and the delectable sandwiches and petite pastries at the Schokolade Cafe.
The delicacies were served artistically in a three-layered fancy tray. We can taste the fresh mint and dill of the finger sandwiches and enjoyed the flaky pastry of the mini chicken pot pie. The delicate house-made orange marmalade went well with the mini freshly-baked scones.
I relaxed with the frothy Aztec hot chocolate and my husband with the Cafe Latte. The selected hand-crafted chocolates were presented artistically and were just as delicious.
The owner/hostess Jane was very gracious and we were delighted to meet Edward the Chocolatier and Pastry Chef. Reservations needed to be made in advance for the afternoon tea as the cafe is small.
It was a afternoon of gastronomic delight and had brought back sweet memories of afternoon tea at the Empress Hotel at Victoria B.C.
We highly recommend the Schokolade Cafe for its friendliness, neighborliness, quality of service and commitment to excellence.
