“Out-of-this-world hot chocolate” is the star turn at this choc-themed bar-restaurant in Borough Market, “decorated in the style of a West Indian chocolate plantation, which gives it a great vibe”. “Coffee is good”, the “breakfasts are also decent”, and there’s a “great terrace overlooking Borough Market”. “It turns from coffee shop by day to bar by night, serving cocktails inspired by chocolate”.

“A chocolate-themed restaurant is a good idea in principle, but some dishes work better than others” is the general verdict on this Borough Market outlet inspired by a St Lucian farm owned by Hotel Chocolat, which “uses cacao in every dish”. “Chocolate mac ’n’ cheese”, anyone? What does work is the “fantastic hot chocolate”, and the café/bar has a “fun atmosphere” in the evening, while “the breakfast menu is really tasty, too”.

The “quirky menu” of “unique cocoa-based cuisine” at this Borough Market venue was developed at a historic St Lucia cocoa plantation owned by Hotel Chocolat, and is rated a middling success. The big deal here? – “They serve amazing hot chocolate… well worth the calories!” It’s also “a lovely place for an informal coffee”, or “after work it turns into a bar, so you can have cocktails”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
