Their food and pastries are so good and are very affordable!!! I guess it's safe to say that Tsokolate is a must eat when one visits Zamboanga. It's also near the city hall, a walking distance to almost anything and everything. Thumbs up!! 👍👍👍

I have been to Tsokolate countless times. The funny thing is I don't take their pastries. Whenever I am within the vicinity around noon, I prefer to take my lunch here. Their food has that "home cooked" touch with a friendly price tag. This place sure is jam packed during lunch time on a regular weekday.

I can't see why this establishment is known as Tsokolate when there is absence of really good chocolate offerings. Chocolate cake? nada. Chocolate drinks? nada. Chocolates? Nada. I just missed Myrna's bakeshop with really good chocolates. They offer Filipino home-cooked meals during lunchtime. In fairness, the shop has really nice decors-old Filipino wood carvings- reminiscent of the old days. The... More

I ate lunch here, and had the pianggang, ampalaya, rice, and iced tea. Everything was very well-cooked, and the pianggang was very flavorful. The iced tea was self-service and refillable. I didn't order any dessert, but the cakes and pastries all looked tasty. One nice detail about the place was the table with an aquarium running right along the length.... More

Food was great! With lots of desserts to choose from. Worth the price. Nice place to go on a date too. It has this vintage and sort of intimate ambience. The place was a bit small but it's fine. Check out the vintage stuff on wall! :)

In terms of food affordability and taste this is the place you shouldn't miss when in Zamboanga! My hubby had bottomless iced tea, literally you just get off your seat and grab your drink from one of their vendo machines. Saves you the hassle from waiting for a staff to serve your drink when you're super thirsty. You can actually... More

I did not eat here, they have limited choices of food especially when they've just opened. but their place is so cozy and homey. Plus it was located on your way to Paseo Del Mar when you are just walking, just pass by the City Hall and you'll see it.
