A great place to unwind on a Friday afternoon. We had ice cream, hot chocolate, florentines, and a selection of delicious chocolates to take home. Friendly and helpful staff, and we were lucky enough to sit in the comfy leather lounge chairs.

Ordered after dinner a cup of rich chocolate -- it took a very long time to come. However in the meantime they gave us lots of chocolates, which are very special. The Hot Chocolate if very rich, and you may want to go for the light version. A lot of cream. If you like all things cocoa based, a must... More

I go to Koko Black quite often. At a recent visit I had a hot chocolate which was yummy. Another great drink is Coffee affogato. The service was excellent and the surroundings had a real nice feel to it.

Stopped for a coffee and we were really impressed with the service and quality of the product. The hot chocolates are amazing. The range of chocolates are incredible. If you are looking for somewhere after dinner or just a treat for yourself well worth it.

We arrived for a late breakfast/morning coffee. Unfortunately no apple & walnut brioche left - will return for another try as it sounds lovely. Can recommend the crumpets - light & crisp + quality jam. It was mid week so only a few customers (mostly older people) - considering that, the service was a little inattentive although once we finally... More

Always delicious coffees, mochas and cakes. Great place for take home chocolates, with a better variety of chocolates than most. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Our host was very helpful, friendly and kind. Pastry was lovely, coffee awesome, iced chocolate very nice, and toasted chicken and avocado sandwich delish. Host even offered a takeaway cup for chocolate my daughter didn't finish. Great service and quality food. Nice atmosphere too. Good price. Will be back.
