Founded by Louise Nason, Melt has had a few notable chocolatiers at its helm since opening in 2006 but currently heading the kitchen is Chika Watanabe. Colourfully glam packaging is bang-on what you’d expect for this corner of Notting Hill but there’s real substance to the range too. We like the Smoke bar – not flavoured with tobacco but made from cocoa beans grown on volcanic soil, giving the 64 percent dark chocolate an adults-only smoky taste. Also hard to resist is textile designer Celia Birtwell’s Dinky cat design stenciled onto milk chocolate lollipops.

This is a chocolate shop to hunt down! Amazing selection of flavours - all good quality.

The service on Saturday was a little lacking - they weren't rude but weren't friendly.
The chocolates are displayed beautifully and there is an area out the back where they hold chocolate making sessions (definitely for kids - not sure about adults?). 
There is also a little area at the front with chairs outside and a little throw in the window where you can sit with a hot drink (their coffee isn't great) and nibble some of their delicious chocolates.
Really recommend their caramels at £1 a pop - sooo buttery and creamy! The chocolate flavoured one was delicious but they also have some fruity flavours that sounds good!
At the moment they have lovely Easter chocolates - eggs wrapped it brightly coloured foil and bunnies, chicks and lambs in dark, milk & white. Perfect for spoiling a loved one over Easter.
