“Rich and creamy hot cacao drink”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

It has been a windy and cool April day, walking along Michigan Avenue; so taking a break from the cold elements and sip into a warm hot cacao drink is definitely a welcome treat.

Reviewed 13 April 2014

Free chocolate when you arrive and a whole menu of awesome desserts to choose from...the chocolate malt is my favorite!

“Hate to be a downer but...”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

Yeah--not so great. Yes, you receive a free chocolate square but the chocolate just does not taste that great. It's fun to walk in but not a deal breaker.

“Oh My Goodness”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

First up you get a free chocolate square! We recommend the Quake Shake. On the last visit we had an 'Ocean Beach' and a 'Cookie Bottom'. All are YUM.
Now we want Ghirardelli shops in Australia.

“Love those calories”
Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

Went for a sundae to share, delicious! Nice place to sit and share a sundae with someone and talk. You are greeted with a free chocolate sample.
