Best espresso in the west village. – What a surprising place to find such delightful coffee. A chocoalate shop with adult clients in mind, this well designed little store is the ideal pit-stop for all of your coffee needs as well as gourmet chocolate. A great adition to a walking tour of the west village and a good place to become a regular if you live in the neighborhood.
Best chocolate drinks and truffles in New York City – This is always my first stop in New York City. I need my chocolate fix. All of the servers know their chocolate and have made some excellent suggestions. I also have to have their chocolate at home so I use their website. I have never had a problem with delivery. Wish they could open a store in Houston (I'd live at their store)
Best Chocolate in New York! – Hands down- the best chocolate in New York was chomped by yours truly in New York's Chocolate Bar. Where can you go in this crazy world to buy a piece of chocolate not served in a heart-shaped box?! I'm not giving you the business when I say that I found myself doing the cha cha when I ate that round disc of marshmallow and caramel. Standing behind none other than Susan Sarandon who called it the "Paul Frank of Chocolate". Cute, but not quite right. This place is has soul. Its a rock n roll creation and the chocolate with the skull & cross bones simply kills. Walk don't run. It's worth the walk.
Chocolate Heaven – This store was Great! The chocolate is soooo good but the staff is not snoty at all. They greated me when i walked in and answered any questions i had. Its small and seating is limited but i enjoyed sitting at the small bar watching people go buy. I had several bars and was not disappointed with anything i had. I recommend the ice chocolate. Its so rich!
WEAK – Totally weak...Not nearly as good as billed...Too much hype...Haven't we had enough of places like this?
Best of New York! – Hot hot chocolate. Chocolate-covered pretzel's. Coconut Cream Pie in a chocolate bar. Save CBGB Chocolates! The hits just keep coming.....Went to CHOCOATE BAR yesterday for the first time after reading the New York Times Style Section story and wanted to see it for myself. Wow! Big ideas from such a cozy spot. This is the kind of store that makes New York special. The owner Alison Nelson was such a wonderful host-- I didn't want to leave. The music was modern. The staff was young and hip, the packaging was perfect and the chocolate was delicious. Someone please remind me why we have 5 million Starbucks and only 1 Chocolate Bar???????
nice place – tried their liquid hot chocolate after hearing how different it was. was definitely very different, more chocolately and creamy. had the caramel liquid chocolate, was very sweet but i liked it. very different from starbucks hot chocolate. this place doesn't use powder. would definitely recommend to frens. place has limited seating so first come first serve. didn't get a chance to try their gourmet chocolate but will be back to try.
Two favorite addictions, cocoa and caffeine, meet at this stylish cafe. – In Short
From the powder blue storefront and neo-'60s sign to the green grass foyer tiles and shelving against gallery white walls, this 650-square-foot boutique isn't your father's candy store. There's not an additive, emulsifier or $8 grande anything to be found. Local espresso, coffee and tea--from Gimme Coffee in Ithica and Serendipitea in Long Island City--are reasonably priced. The big ticket is a box of 48 Jacques Torres' truffles, and chocolates have a three week shelf life.
Awesome – Great candy, the chocolate is so good, well worth a trip
Celebrity Sighting! Even they eat Chocolate... – Almost fainted at Chocolate Bar when in the span of two minutes walked Leonardo DiCaprio, Mike Myers and Julianne Moore. Wow! Talk about pre-Oscar gitters...
Oh, the chocolate is out of this world! Count me in as a regular.
