My wife and I enjoyed our 2nd visit to cocoa black. Both of our cakes were EXCELLENT. I further to that had a caramel hot chocolate and my wife a latte. We felt that both lacked any real taste and were a tad disappointed. Overall we will definitely return.

I had a tasty cappuccino and yummy Carmel Cake (can't remember the exact name, but it is pictured below). My mom had a Delicious hot chocolate. The staff was super smiley and very friendly. I bought 4 of the hand-made Salted Carmel Chocolate bars for our friends back home. Everyone loved them. We really liked CoCo Black. =)

lovely shop and café but found the food very rich and a bit sickly. Liked the items on sale in shop. Thought it was a bit pricey and not the most comfortable surroundings

Since so many years we enjoy the little bordertown Peebles. We always will have a rest even a quick one or do some shopping for fine chocolates

We visited Cocoa Black on a short Sunday trip to Peebles and we left thinking that we'd return to Peebles just to visit the cafe itself. Really friendly service and the cakes. cheesecake, sponges and chocolate were fabulous. The flour-less orange cake and the white chocolate cheesecake come in for a special mention. The different chocolates on sale...you shouldn't be... More
