Not chocolates made from real chocolate and topped off with chocolate shavings, cream and mini marshmallows....what’s not to like? We were able to take advantage of the window seats and able to watch the comings and goings of Clifton west enjoying rich and indulgent hot...More

Cafe with emphasis on chocolate and cakes. Our hot chocolates were not so hot, especially not the one with a lot of cream and marshmallows on top. Friendly staff. Wifi works well.

There were options for dairy free and gluten free here which is fab and they even have coconut milk so I had a delicious hot chocolate. The cakes are gorgeous and there is good service.

Description
A short stroll down from the historic Clifton Suspension Bridge and you'll find Bar Chocolat on The Mall at the heart of Clifton Village. Where better to meet up with friends and relax for a while with something from our classic cafe menu than in our cosy, unique atmosphere? We are a family business and pride ourselves on good-old-fashioned quality service to make each and every visit a pleasure. We think we do the best hot chocolate in town - it's our absolute passion - as well as our cafe classics including organic, fair trade coffees and teas, alcoholic drinks and delicious homemade cakes and food served all day.
