Bonbon

A fancy chocolatier with prices to match, although the hot chocolates can (and really should) be tried by everyone


Like the personal sampling room Willy Wonka forgot to build, chocolate haven Bonbon has very quickly been taken under the Northern Quarter’s wing. Serving up a heady mix of chocolates, coffee and luxury, Bonbon is a joint venture between Teacup (located just down the street) and Joey Collins of Troffel, who have given the place a boutique feel with dark wooden furniture and curious paper bag lamps.

As well as sweets and pick-me-ups, concoctions such as salted caramel and stilton have been known to send tongues wagging with confusion or delight. And while prices are on the expensive side (at £5.60 for a box of four homemade chocolates), fine ingredients mean they’re well pitched as generous gifts.

If you try one thing, though, go for a hot chocolate. They’re made from outstanding Valrhona chocolate (a favourite of Marco Pierre White), and can be paired with classic salted caramel or, for an authentic Aztec touch, chilli powder. All with medicinal purposes in mind, of course.
