Walking around Hillcrest with my wife looking for something to eat that wasn't "fusion". Walked right up to Chocolat looked at the menu outside and saw breakfast til 2pm. Done deal!

I don't understand why it's so hard to get eggs over medium everywhere else, but Chocolat made them perfectly, along with everything else we had. The berry stuffed French toast was incredible, real cream for coffee, fresh whipped cream, real maple syrup, and my wife recommends the half carafe of mimosas.

We actually tried another gelato and it was just not as good. This visit to Chocolat was as expected: WONDERFUL! The gelato is very flavorful and true to form. The staff are always polite, honest and helpful. Thank you so much for being in downtown San Diego. Now, let's talk about that Iowa City, IA franchise opportunity!

A nice, quaint place with lots of variety. Crepes, frittatas, gelato, wine, all kinds of yummy things. Sometimes it's open air. The service was great and friendly.

We walked to this place after we had dinner a couple doors down. The atmosphere, food and drinks were very good. Service was great by Cass.

We had friends in from our days in Anchorage Alaska and went to see a movie at Hillcrest. With time to kill we walked over to Chocolat (which we had seen many times while going to movies at Hillcrest but had never visited. Big mistake. We only wanted drinks and deserts. The wait staff was prompt and quite responsive to our questions. The coffee drinks were quite good and the deserts were excellent. I had gelato -- they had all three of my favorite flavors and they were quite good (not like our favorite spots in Bologna, and other Italian cities, but very tasty). We will try the dinner menu on our next visit to the movies.
