We aim to bring you chocolate in as many ways as possible! Brunch and lunch at Chocolatl sees classic dishes revamped with a playful chocolate twist. Our spring menus currently include smashed avocado with feta & cocoa nibs, smoked salmon bagel with white chocolate horseradish cream cheese & home-made pork & cocoa sausage rolls, to name but a few. We even use chocolate to make fabulous home-made jams and chutneys. Chocolate is sprinkled throughout our menu as we aim to show just how fabulously versatile an ingredient it is!

We also specialise in hot chocolate made with real melted chocolate - choose the origin and strength of your chocolate, infuse it with spices or a shot of your favourite tipple.

With home-made cakes, chocolate cocktails, boozy weekend brunch & much much more, come and visit us at our Pantiles store for true chocolate indulgence!

Shop

The last decade has brought a chocolate revolution to the UK. Artisanal crafters have been carefully selecting the finest beans and processing them in small batches to make an exciting array of flavour profiles. Much like coffee or fine wine, the tastes can vary significantly based on where the beans are from and how they are grown.

At Chocolatl, we want to showcase these outstanding bean-to-bar producers and so we offer a growing range of the best chocolate bars, truffles, gifts and more for you to take home and give to your loved ones – or just treat yourself. There are plenty of dairy, gluten and nut-free options too, so no one need miss out on the delights of chocolate!

Food of the gods


The cocoa plant's Latin name is Theobroma Cacao, which means food of the gods. A well-deserved name for such a versatile and luxurious ingredient. Our food and drinks menus have been created to showcase chocolate in all its sweet and savoury glory.

Chocolatiers

Grown in sub-tropical climes, a cacao or cocoa tree produces around 25 to 30 pods each year. Each pod contains between 25 to 50 cocoa beans. These beans are harvested, fermented, dried, roasted, winnowed, ground, conched and tempered before becoming a finished chocolate bar. Every single stage of the process affects the flavour of the finished bar.

From Brooklyn to Berlin, San Francisco to Seville, passionate chocolate makers are creating tantalisingly delicious chocolate bars. They source premium beans directly from small farmers who value provenance and quality. They manufacture in small batches and maintain high standards. Their bars are varied and sublimely flavourful.

The flavour of individual cacao beans is not only dependent on the variety, but also on the soil, temperature, sunshine and rainfall. It is now possible to buy chocolates made with cacao beans from single estate across the world and thus compare the aromas and flavours. We are increasingly spoilt for choice when it comes to high-end chocolates.
