Time Out says

Please note, Choccywoccydoodah has now closed. Time Out Food editors, June 2019.

One can’t help but be distracted by the fantasmagorical cakes when visiting this store-cum-café, but there’s a wide range of chocolate here too. Tongue-in-cheek items include three types of chocolate popcorn bar, and the inevitable Choccywoccyrocky Road. For reasons we can’t quite fathom, Chunky Ladies’ Secrets is white chocolate studded with glacé cherries and walnuts. Want to truly freak out a loved one? Buy the 2.8kg life-size chocolate skull hand-painted with flowers – it’s £100.

Och what a shame. I was really looking forward to bringing my bf here for a hot chocolate and cake in their upstairs cafe but we found that it just didn't compare to all the hype!

I was expecting to queue a while as you can't book and on previous visits to stare at their amazing chocolate displays there has been such a queue. We must have timed it right as we only had to wait a few minutes. I did hear others in larger groups being told they would have to wait 20 minutes so just bare in mind if you want to go in a large group.
We were sat on their mezzanine in the corner so it felt nice a private and I got to sit in the snazziest throne-esque chair. The waitress was super friendly and explained everything on their massive chalk board menu.
The 2 things I really wanted to try was the cake & icecream combo and the dipping selection. We opted to share the 6 tier cake which meant you got to sample the 6 flavours they bake in store. This was coated in chocolate and served with ice cream. It looks amazing (see photos) but I am afraid to say it was no where near the best cake I have had. It was served cold which I think would be greatly improved if it was served warm, the ice cream was a cheap vanilla which was another let down and the cake itself was a bit dense. The chocolate wasn't chocolatey enough, the amaretto was far to sweet and the lemon was a bit tart. The best by far was the coconut cake! My bf also got a hot chocolate which comes piled high with marshmallows and cream. He said it was good - plenty chocolatey. I wish we had gone for the dipping selection which had brownies, strawberries, biscuits etc on it with a melted pot of chocolate as they looked amazing on the next table along. Sadly for the price and the quality I won't be bothering to come back!

I never write reviews, but I was so stunned that such a beautiful shop could disappoint that I must add my warning. It has style, but no substance. Their cakes are beautiful to behold, but inedible. Dry, tasteless, waxy, old and outrageously expensive are the only way to describe them. Don't waste your time or money here. Our £34 cake ended up in the bin. I am very sorry I did not return to the shop with the uneaten cake and demand my money back. It was amazing to look at, but to call it a cake is shameful on their part. How they get away with this I simply do not know.


After all the hype about this place, I was keen to check out this little treasure trove of chocolatey goodness. It didn't disappoint. I had a dark hot chocolate and we shared a chocolate dipping pot, complete with a selection of treats to dip in. It was all yummy, even if we did leave feeling sick (from eating so much)! Service was really good. I would advise that they get some printed menus, it's a little annoying to have to wait for one of the two menu boards to come round.


When I walked in for the first time, I had no idea there had been a TV show about Choccywoccydoodah and couldn't have cared less. I was caught straightaway: this place is a museum to me. Art made of CHOCOLATE! Fake wedding cakes, shoes, Halloween specials, hearts for Valentine's day and so on. I believe they can make whatever you want out of chocolate on demand. Of course, if you're on a budget, it's probably not the place you want to source your daily chocolate fix from. Now to the most exciting part: there is a cafe upstairs! You can get all sorts of chocolate based cakes, hot chocolates of course but mainly, my absolute favourite: the CHOCOLATE FONDUE! Truely amazing.

Exquisite pieces of incredibly edible art! What these guys can do with a pack of flour, a few eggs and a bit of piping is seriously impressive. We popped in after catching the show on TV a few times, and then getting into Bake Off, and were blown away by how good these things look. We ended up buying a chocolate westie in a clown's outfit for my brother in law's birthday and although there was sadness in the little dog's eyes as we sank our knife into the nape of his neck, via the pretty red ruffle, we didn't much care. It tasted good. Mary Berry would have licked her lipless lips. God knows what Hollywood would have done. Really recommend this place - you get what you pay for.

What a treat for the eyes! If you're looking for all you can do with chocolate, try Choccywoccydoodah near Carnaby Street. It is so impressive, you'll love walking around and looking at the elaborate chocolates which make for a great gift. There's a cafe upstairs, although I didn't get time to try it out. A lovely place to visit if you're near Carnaby Street.
