Chocolate et Café is a haven for all serious chocoholics. Situated in the heart of Pretoria, the restaurant offers an assortment of luxury chocolates that come in different variations, shapes, and sizes. Everything is chocolate-inspired – from the decadent cakes to hot beverages and rich fondues.
The brick-walled cottage is like something out of a fairy tale – the interior is cosy and comfortable especially during winter. The outside terrace is perfect for high tea with friends during those long, summer afternoons in the enchanting garden.
The comprehensive menu at Chocolate et Café caters to everyone, including diners who aren’t chocolate enthusiasts. Breakfast-eaters can enjoy veritable sweet treats, including peaches and cream French toast or fruit-filled crepes. Diners looking for savoury meals can choose from a wide selection of light lunches – from pesto chicken sandwiches to spinach and ricotta quesadillas.
The desserts at Chocolate et Café are a popular choice among the regulars – they are innovative creations and are, effectively, chocolate-made art. Recommended dishes include chocolate cheesecake truffles, fondant, and ginger mousse.
If you’re looking for the ultimate overload, accompany your dessert with the restaurant’s many versions of hot chocolate – from a spicy hot chocolate mocha to cookies and cream. Alternatively, sip on a frothy cappuccino, or hazelnut or vanilla flavoured coffee if you’re in need of a caffeine fix. Tea drinkers can choose from a vast selection of teas – from green and herb to speciality tea.
Pick and choose between the menu’s miscellaneous section if you wish to load your plate with a miscellany of sweet treats – think chocolate brownies, Turkish delight, truffles, or macaroons.
