Went at 8:15pm on a Thursday night. It was packed from inside to the patio seating. Luckily we got a seat. Only 1 server/busser/hostess, essentially she did everything front of house. Service was slow, slow to get menus, she was obviously in over her head. But the Chocolate Noir cake with the raspberry sorbet was to die for. Their Chocolate Martini is worth every penny, my first time ever having one and I could drink 32 oz of it. Besides the poor service the atmosphere was quaint and the dessert made it worth having poor service. Tip: don't go during peak dessert hours. They also serve food as well, but mainly dessert.

If you like chocolate, and who doesn't, this is the restaurant for you. Chocolate and more chocolate whether it is presented through dessert or a drink or candy. This restaurant also has very good salads, sandwiches and soups, as well as more filling entrees. Even though the restaurant looks like a tea room, the guys in our group had no problem eating lunch there. Excellent food and delectable desserts. The only problem is choosing from the vast and varied menu. Staff was very friendly and helpful in helping us decide on which dessert to indulge.

Went to the Chocolate Cafe after dinner at Enzio's in Ft. Collins and was just amazed by the wonderful, decadent, delicious desserts. Our party had chocolate cheesecake, peanut butter pie, chocolate creme brulee and the signature chocolate cake. All amazing stuff. My favorite dessert in the whole wide world is peanut butter pie, and this is the best one I had on my western trip (the best in the world is in Boiling Springs, PA, but that's another story). Absolutely worth it ...

We were told about the café by a local when we visited. When we checked the website one of the deserts the local loved, Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie,was not on the menu. They said they made it but hadn't updated their website. When we got there, they didn't have it and there were a number of other desserts were unavailable. They said they had a busy weekend, but this was Monday afternoon. But the two deserts we did get were absolutely outstanding! Just call ahead to make sure they have what you want. We also called ahead to see if we would need reservations.

The family went out for my sisters birthday and we planned to go to the Chocolate Cafe for dessert but upon arrival about an hour before their closing time they said that the kitchen was closed and they wouldn't be able to serve us. We tried to ask if we could just sit in and have a quick cup of coffee but the idea was quickly shot down by the waitress. We would have been more understanding but the manner in which the waitress spoke to us was quite frankly just rude! We had heard great things about this cafe but after this experience we were left with a bad taste in our mouthes. We were very disappointed and upset with the way we were treated. Not to mention they missed out on making a sale to a group of 7 people!
