Women's bathroom has no toilet tissue nor hand towels apparently for guests or waitstaff which is unacceptable. Didn't eat breakfast. Drank chocolate milk which was ok. Staff was silly and inattentive. For a well known chain this experience was not good.

They have so many types to choose from. Also, you can buy cacao beans and you can make your own chocolate at home!

The place on Mina is interesting. You can watch the beans being ground and talk about the process. The first time there we ordered the 100% cocoa hot chocolate without sugar. The hot chocolate was thick and delicious. But the next time it was thin...More

We bought different types of chocolates w/o actually understanding what they are. Initially we supposed those are to be eaten. That was not correct, at least for ours. One shall read the advise on the box - ours were to prepare a hot chocolate drink....More
