Rococo chocolates Belgravia

Founder Chantal Coady is revered as a pioneer of fine chocolate in the UK and even today seems several steps ahead, with her involvement in the Grenada Chocolate Company – their organic bars on sale here are some of the best on the market. Rococo’s own flavoured bars are justly popular (the rose flavour is heavenly) and the novelties – among them hand-painted chocolate sardines, and jersey new potatoes with mint (made from hazelnut praline, white chocolate and mint leaves) – always raise a smile. Next Easter, treat your BFF to the gorgeous artisan hand-painted chocolate eggs.

Rococo chocolates is a shop that sells a wide variety of luxury British chocolates in the quaint and classy Belgrave area on Motcomb Street.

With a counter full of chocolates including coconut pralines, pistachio pralines, rose and cocoa and so much more, I decided to opt for one of their sea salt caramels along with some tea.

With shabby chic chairs, the room seemed to have that touch of wonderful cottage charm. As I sat down, I was served a mug of builder’s tea (£2.75). It was what one might describe as “working man’s tea” which is a strong cup of tea with a teabag very reminiscent of my uni days when people moved from door to door introducing themselves and inviting their neighbours in for a cuppa.I enjoyed this with a piece of sea salt caramel (£1.50) which tasted rich and creamy. Still feeling greedy, I ordered a hot chocolate (£4.50) which was incredibly decadent. Their hot chocolate is so popular they supply it to The Park Tower Hotel in Knightsbridge.

At the back of the café, there is a staircase which leads down to a hidden colourful tiled Moroccan courtyard. I had certainly found myself a secret garden for this summer

They also have a brilliant Roald Dahl collection which I thought was a fun british themed gift for both adults and children.With a myriad of different combinations and flavours of both individual chocolates and slabs to choose from as well as wafers, nougats and hampers to take away, this quintessentially british shop really is outstanding. These are not your usual brands commonly found on the high street.

I'd read about Rococo in Timeout after its hot chocolate was recommended as being one of the best. We selected individual chocolates from the counter, which were all amazing. There was an earl grey chocolate which was my favorite! Each chocolate was well flavoured and the chocolate was smooth and delicious! The only downside is, that it is slightly expensive but I suppose you get what you pay for!

You cannot mistake these very well crafted chocolates due to unmistakable blue and white specimen print all over. The chocolates here are very good and are always a treat to receive, the shop has a farmers market feel to it and is nice to shop in. However I find the chocolates themselves to be nothing remarkably better than the other high end chocolate shops in London.

This is the cutest shop and the chocolates are divine! These are my new favourites - rose champagne truffles - yummy! You can get these chocolates in loads of places like Liberty and Selfridges but this little shop down a cute London street has a cafe too so you can sit down and relax. It isn't cheap - £15 for this little box but highly recommended for taste!

This chocolate shop is full of vibrant colour and amazing looking chocolates shaped as animals which are beautifully painted.

The people serving however are snooty and rude. 
The chocolates from the counter were delicious - I highly recommend the salted caramel ravioli & pear willams chocolate - but the bars they sell (sold in Selfridges as well) are not great. They offer these as tasters and NONE of them had an overly chocolate flavour and the texture was a little odd. 
Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this place if looking to spoil someone with a few posh chocolates - there is more choice and better service in Selfridges!
