The Covent Garden branch of luxury chocolate purveyors Hotel Chocolat also hosts a cocoa bean bar for ardent chocoholics. Delicious chocolates made on-site can be sampled downstairs in the unique Cocoa Bar Cafe, while the usual range of indulgent gifts and treats from the Hotel Chocolat brand can be bought from the shop upstairs.

This is solely for the friendly service and free iced frappe I received from here a few weeks back.


Hotel Chocolat is overpriced but granted their chocolates are innovative and tasty. You can't go wrong with a box for birthday, Christmas or thank you gifts. Buying for yourself as a sweet treat however - well you've got more money than sense. 

This branch also has a cafe which sells brownies (again over priced) and hot chocolate. It hosts bean to bar experiences where you're able to learn about the process of making chocolate while nibbling on it throughout (aaaalsoooo rather pricey).

Somehow I had signed up to their mailing list and as such was kindly offered a free iced frappe which they launched at the start of the summer. After a jog in the insane heat my bf and I decided we deserved a treat and went to redeem this. 

There are 3 options; salted caramel, white chocolate or milk chocolate. We opted for salted caramel. I watched it being made and my god the calories.... Liquid chocolate, half a salted caramel brownie and a tonne of cream added to a load of ice, whizzed up in a blender, poured and then topped with the tastiest cocoa cream.

It is literally a heart attack in a cup. I definitely couldn't manage a whole one. 

At just shy of £4 a drink I actually don't think it is too steep considering you HAVE to share it between two. 

It really is the perfect treat! Grab one before the weather turns.

I recently went to a tasting event at the Victoria branch of Hotel Chocolat and it's honestly changed my view of chocolate - as well as Hotel Chocolat. Informative, and really fun to taste different kinds of chocolate - it was a sample of the whole tasting experience which I'm really inclined to save up and go for now. It was so educational about sugar contents and dark chocolate, and I have to say I'm a complete convert to Hotel Chocolat and would recommend the experiences for all to try out :)

Comfort food breakfasts or indulgent teas – fresh coca and tasters galore. They push the health aspect by reminding you of coca’s antioxidant benefits but that can soon be undone with their selection of moist cakes, blondies and iced milk chocolate shakes.
