“Chocolate Heaven. A must to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

Having read the reviews on here we decided to visit during our two day break in Auchterarder. We opted for Hot Chocolate Chasers - a large mug of hot chocolate and two truffles for just shy of £5. OK, not cheap but in our opinion well worth it. The hot chocolate was excellent and the top and rim of the mug had been dipped/ drizzled with milk and white chocolate. Devine. The other half told the member of staff he would have a piece of cake as he doesn't like truffles to which he was told these are not any ordinary truffles. Too true. We devoured the ones we chose.

We enjoyed this visit so much we returned the following day for more of the same.

One negative - the place is cold. I will give them the benefit of the doubt and say it's to keep their fantastic chocolates at an appropriate temperature. But
make sure you take a jacket !

“Just didn't cut it”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2014

Maybe we caught this place on a bad day. It was snowing outside, and we just wanted somewhere comfortable and warm to sit and have a hot chocolate and a bit of cake. Somewhere called 'cocoa mountain' sounds great on such a day, doesn't it?

Sadly, after wedging ourselves in to a small table stuffed in a corner with rock hard seats, the first disappointment was the price of everything. Nonetheless I like to work with the assumption that everyone means well and assumed the cakes and drinks must be of excellent quality.

It wasn't to be however. After the waitress, who seemed to be having a very bad day and took it out on me by sulking and barking 'just sit down' when I went to order at the till.. they took our order and brought us out completely the wrong cakes. To be honest, I wish we'd kept the ones she brought out first because when our salted caramel brownies arrived, were so tiny, dry and tasteless that even the mass produced ones in the big tub from M&S seemed brilliant by comparison.

I did a double take on the coffee when it arrived, because it looked like tea. It was a transparent, tan kind of colour, and I was just about to take it back when I had a sip and realised that yes, this was coffee, just very, very weak coffee like the stuff you make when you try to reuse what's at the bottom of the cafetiere.

Oh, and the place was absolutely freezing. I know it was 0 degrees outside, but in this location in scotland it's not exactly a rare occurrence..

Sorry, I'm not often negative, but we should have just kept on going and nipped into a McDonalds somewhere for a coffee.

This is a true chocolate heaven. A Bit pricey but worth it as a treat. The hot chocolate is made with real melted chocolate and not powder. Go and enjoy

“Nothing special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013 via mobile

Stopped here for a hot chocolate. It was a very nice hot chocolate but so it should be for £4.25. It was a pretty expensive drink. The atmosphere was a little odd. Its certainly nothing special. Why not give a complementary chocolate with the drink add something a little more.

“The best ever hot chocolate”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

Stopped here for a hot chocolate after a 10 mile walk. The best ever hot chocolate I have tasted. It was heaven in a mug. So smooth and delicious. Asked for a hint re the recipe but would have been shot if managed to get it! The assistant was so nice and friendly.
Tasty chocolates with the drink too. Will have to go back before my week is up in Aucheterader!!
