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.
