“Chocolate Galore”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

What a lovely surprise and gem to find in Highland Perthshire! Friendly, polite & very helpful staff in chocolate shop and cafe. Nothing wasn't any trouble. Rosie taking time to wrap gifts & explain the centre. Another member of staff bubble wrapped gifts to send to New Zealand. Loved the fairytale (e.g. Hansel & Gretal) themes - gave it a lovely magical atmosphere. Chocolates are expensive but it is not supermarket chocolate but chocolate created by an award winning chocolatier (craftsmen) - didn't think, - given it's craft chocolate was too pricey! Lunch was lovely - recommend the Caesar salad and chocolate shot. Highly recommend this place to stop and recharge batteries. Also for selecting novel presents too!

Afternoon tea was choccy tastic. Very quirky cafe good service and a nice treat. The shop is expensive but you don't need to buy anything . Well worth a visit for afternoon tea.

“Shocked and dismayed at the price of the chocolates.”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We arrived at the centre wanting to buy chocolates but were quite upset at the very high prices and reluctantly parted with £6 to purchase a box of 4.

Café was nice for a drink and a cake and I thoroughly enjoyed the carrot cake and the hot spiced apple tea. My partner indulged in the white chocolate cake and hot chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows and said it felt very heavy in his stomach and he would have liked to have had a nap after it.

At the end of our visit we used the toilet facilities and found them to be quite dirty and in need of a thorough clean.

“Scottish Chocolate Centre”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Visiting the centre was interesting. Although if advertising the establishment as a centre, I would suggest that there is some kind of demonstration taking place at regular intervals at the week-end when many visitors are in the area. We appreciated that it is a working environment but visitors should be catered for when they specially make the trip to visit.

The shop looks very nice and the much of the chocolate on the expensive side and the coffee shop and outside seating area is lovely.

Can I suggest in order to provide something worth while for visitors have a larger range at reasonable prices for purchase and provide a set demonstration perhaps four times a day.

“Rocky road to die for....”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Truly amazing Rocky Road and compared to our experience in a well reviewed cafe in Pitochry we got three times the portion size, one pound cheaper and far, far better quality. The coffe was the best we have had in these parts, at last something stronger, real flavour and not weak and all froth. Excellent stop but warning, chocolates on sale are pricey but sooooo yummy and considering all the work that has gone into making them probably a fair price.
