We tried this place the first time we went to Pont Aven to look around (we were staying in Port Manec’h) and fell in love straight away. We kept on going back again and again and never looked back! They are delightful people and have a wonderful selection of coffees, teas, chocolates and cakes. Just the place to spoil yourself,... More

Absolutely splendid place with a great outdoor area. The patisseries are far superior to many in from you average boulangerie, tasting incessantly fine and the essence of perfection. I also recommend going in the morning to buy patisseries to take away as although twice as expensive as from other boulangeries/ patisseries will certainly be rewarding. Also sells very helpful things,... More

Unbelievable hot chocolate and chocolate by the piece. This is a must. Beautiful shop in very old house in Pont Aven. The owner is a famous chocolatier. I want to try the guimauves and every other confection in this place. Even the coffee is yummy.

La Chocolaterie de Pont-Aven is one of our favourite places for a nice dessert or chocolate. The service is friendly and the desserts are delicious. This is probably the best place in the area for quality pastries.

This is a gorgeous stone building that is equally pretty on the inside. We were presented with a menu with a whole array of delicious sounding cakes and drinks. After much consideration the four of us were ready when the waitress came. Sadly, she explained that she just took our drinks order and we had to go to the counter... More

Based on the rave reviews here we called in for a desert and drink. The choice was limited to what was left, not everything on the menu was available and the drinks were bog standard. Some of the deserts looked good but tasted quite ordinary. I can't see what fuss was about. I should have went somewhere else for a... More

Entering this old fashioned French chocolate shop and café is just like entering a black and white movie. So old fashioned, so slow motion, so good. And not to forget: the chocolates are so good you could die for. But don't do it just go back and buy more!

So loved La Chocolaterie that we had to make a special visit just to get some more cakes in before traveling back to the UK - 3 cakes seemed to be the ideal with each sitting, but beware the waistline! Cakes made on site, and very fresh. Worth a visit, and be hungry as I reckon you'll want at least... More

I love chocolate and desserts. This is the place in Pont-Aven. Terribly tempting. Gorgious millefeuille. A very nice place to have a "chocolat chaud" when the weather is chilly.
