Description
ChoccoBar is an independent, contemporary coffee shop & hot chocolate house offering all the usual coffee shop refinements with a few light bites, great cakes & gorgeous waffles. The similarity stops there! As you may realise from the name, ChoccoBar specialises in REAL Hot Chocolate but with a twist. Our chocolate is made continental style, thick & Indulgent. We use a blend of real Belgian chocolate without the use of any powders so its good all the way to the bottom. The 'twist' is that we also offer a wide range of flavour essences to add a unique dimension to your drinking experience. 'Chocolate to talk about' To find us: we're in the middle of Quarry Rigg Shopping Centre, just off Lake Road, Bowness. The neares public car park is by the cinema LA23 3BJ 40m away from us or on street parking.
