“C is for Chocolate...D is for Dissapointment !”
Review of Sokolata 56

A sister chocolaterie to the uninspired, uncomfortable setting of Sokolata (a few blocks away - same owner - which had been on my chocolate-hopping venue list a couple of years ago...never to return!), this shop definitely offers a huge aesthetic improvement to the original location (even though it is tucked in a corner of a nondescript arcade close to the main city square), with mishmash colorful furnishings and bohemian decor. That, for me, is its ONLY saving grace. The menu is WAY overpriced through n' through, with its signature highly advertised Valrhona hot chocolates @ 5.50 - 7.00 euro a piece (!!!), which would be forgivable if the taste were up to par (indeed, it is not to die for), or if the servings were healthy (instead they come in little old-fashioned china cups that just don't cut it, especially in the most pricy versions, as if it were rationed out). To make things worse, the choice of milk is animal milk (i.e. no choice!) and we were offered some silly excuses for other options. So if you are vegan or lactose intolerant, you might as well forget it ! I'm not even gonna bother about the service (at a very busy time it seemed staffed only by the owner), which was a joke ...unless you have a sweet tooth for sarcasm, in which case, you might be in for a treat !!

A very cosy place to enjoy the Valrhona chocolate in a dreamy thick liquid form ! A very large variety of different chocolate origins will make you feel like travelling around the globe to taste all the special categories of chocolate that Valrhona has gathered. Enjoy it hot or cold!

A really nice and homelike place! Beware on the chocolate you pick, you might regret it....or love it! Also price can be an issue!

This place has many specialty chocolates from around the world to make their delicious hot chocolate.

The atmosphere is very cute and there aren't many tables. Would recommend trying once as it is pricey 5-6 euro for a hit chocolate!
