“Chocolate heaven”
Reviewed 3 April 2013

If you're a fan of chocolate this is the place.There is something for everyone. Friendly attentive shop owner. The chocolate is divine.It's very hard to make a choice they have so much to offer. They also do sweets in jars if that's your treat. At the rear of the shop is a small area of chocolate nostalgia/memorabilla. It also features a chocolate man/giant egg and lolly. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

“ILFRACOMBE CHOCOLATE FACTORY”
Reviewed 4 December 2012

I was fascinated by the displays of chocolate through the ages and the 6 feet man made of chocolate, varnished to stop it melting. Many of the chocolates I remembered eating when I was a child. It is well worth a visit.

“Fabulous chocolates and friendly service”
Reviewed 6 October 2012

I love the chocolates here! We forget what real chocolate tastes like these days.You can choose from a number of different sized boxes and pick your own chocolate selection .Nigel will decorate the box beautiful.You can pick from the vast array of ready packaged chocolates if in a rush.Nigels wife makes all the chocolates and you can see her busily tempering and decorating at the back of the shop.Dont miss this little place even if you just pop in and buy alittle taster.

“For 'Emporium' read 'expensive shop'”
Reviewed 1 September 2012 via mobile

Don't come here if it is your sole reason for visiting Ilfracombe as you will be disappointed. It is a very expensive chocolate shop with a small area at the back containing a display of the sort of mugs you get free with Easter eggs and old chocolate assortment boxes (yes it's been a while since I saw a box of Terrys All Gold but not sure I really needed that particular walk down memory lane) a chocolate man (varnished) and a small peep-hole window where you can see a worker out the back making chocolates.

The shop itself sells chocolate at prices to make you gulp (not so much in anticipation, more shock really) but the staff seem nice enough and there's probably something for everyone's taste in chocolate, including diabetic chocolate on offer.
