I have visited this place a few times over the summer with my girlfriend, and we have loved going here every time. We initially went after hearing the reviews of the hot chocolates but quickly fell in love with the cakes and ice cream. The...More

I love the Chocolate Tree. It's my go-to cafe when I'm really needing a pick-me-up. Not an instant caffeine high, but a genuine well-rounded, make-your-entire-day-better-kind-of-high.

Gerat for a sunny day where you can take it to the park and relax. We had the chocolate mint, espresso amaretto and the chocolate....all fantastic flavors. The treat is the chocolate dipped cone!

The atmosphere is fantastic, the staff are very nice and helpful, and the chocolate tastes amazing. I had the dairy free hazelnut chocolate and the taste was very special. I definitely want to go back and try more flavours.

We recently visited The Chocolate Tree in Bruntsfield for a white hot chocolate, having dropped in for the same thing on previous occasions and loved it. In fact, we loved The Chocolate Tree so much that we put in a sizeable order for our wedding...More

I was disappointed that the hot chocolate didn't seem like it was made from melted chocolate. However the churro and chocolate cake were both great and left two of us saited. The waitress tried to find us a table which we appreciated.
