We stopped here to purchase Yves Thurries chocolate, and stayed for a hot chocolate with chantilly cream. It was so good, we waited a few hours until our bellies felt empty and we went back for another round! It's one of the finest hot chocolates we've ever had - only Thomas Haas, a French chocolatier who has opened a couple of boutiques in Vancouver, has served us better (and we once had some incredible hot chocolate at Amorino in Paris, which was unexpected). Really, it's world-class hot cocoa, served in a huge mug with a large bowl of chantilly cream, in a beautiful little dining room with colorful chairs and warm ambience. If you're in Annecy, do not miss it. It's the kind of hot cocoa that will turn you into the kind of person who gets on a plane and flies long distance just to have hot cocoa.

And if you love dark chocolate, pick up a Thurries 100% bar this year - wherever they sourced their cacao from must have had a great harvest, because their pure 100% cacao bar (pure paste, no sugar) is wonderfully smooth and mild - you'll think you're eating 90% dark.

"‌Folie Royale" a coffee shop with character worth a "détour".

A warm welcome to enjoy a quiet moment for coffee, patisseries or even ice-cream or a light lunch and their unique Austrian recipe for hot chocolat.

Talking of chocolate, Folie Royale, is the boutique for Annecy of "Maître chocolatier" Yves Thuriès stocking a wide range of chocolates.

As I say worth a "détour".

The service was lovely. Relaxed place. Popped in for a cup of hot chocolate, I wouldn't go as far as saying it's the best in the world but it's worth a stop if you're a fan of cocoa.

Lying in the heart of Annecy, this little gem is definitely worth a visit. Apart from the gorgeous decor and lovely multi-lingual couple that run the place, it has astonishing chocolate products. The crown jewel is the hot chocolate. Have two!

This little cafe is a chocolate heaven, myself and my husband spent 3 nights in lovely Annecy and had read about this place so just had to try it, the hot chocolate is the best I have ever tasted it is dark rich and delicious, the owner is a very friendly character who seems to enjoy having a little chat and explaining the different chocolates they do. We went back the next morning for another helping of the rich dark stuff, oh and delicious chocolates, cakes too.
