“Divine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

Tricky to find for a manchester novice, but worth the hunt.
Tucked away on a little side street, just 4 tiny tables but my word what a find. If you love chocolate pay a visit. Small but perfectly formed menu, coffee, tea or a divine hot chocolate (several flavours including salted caramel, chilli hot chocolate and aztec spice) and to go with it, some of the FABulous flourless chocloate cake OR one of their lovely brownies with a choice of topping. We had the pistachio brownie. A slice of the chocolate cake will set you back £4 so not cheap, BUT one slice will serve two people as it is very rich.
Atmosphere is lovely, owner/chocolate maker, lovely lady in 50s dress and very friendly male. Dark brown walls add to the chocolately ambience.
If you've not quite had enough chocolate by this point, take some of the pink salt caramel chocolates home with you, and experience the wonderful explosion of taste as their molten centre. Expensive at £1.40 per chocolate, but go on ... treat yourself!

“Bijou Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 March 2014

Been meaning to try this place for ages & popped in with a couple of girlfriends for an afternoon hot choc. It's different & very good. I had the aztec hot choc & we shared some of the handmade truffles - all very adult & decadent. Looking forward to trying some more treats again soon I hope!

We had a hot chocolate, coffee and a brownie and it was a perfect after lunch treat. It is small, but we found the atmosphere good.

“Vegan friendly hot chocolate!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

I really enjoy the hot chocolate beverages available at Bon Bon.

Three flavours that I am very fond of:
1.Orange
2.Chilli
3.Salted caramel!

They are quite the treat and vegan friendly!

The flourless chocolate cake is heavenly. If you love chocolate then try this.

I think that the shop is quaint and I can understand how some people would feel uncomfortable in such a small space but enjoy the chocolate delights and the cosy atmosphere.

Manchester's Northern Quarter was in need of a talented chocolatier and now it has one. Who knows, in time they may move to a larger premises which will enable them to have more tables but for now let's enjoy the ambience...or get a hot chocolate / ice cream to go!

PS. I am not vegan but I think that this is useful information for those that are.
