A small shop with cute interior, gracious wait staff, wonderful desserts, and really dark hot chicolate. Well worth stopping for a treat. The cherry (griotte) and marzipan torte was outstanding and went perfectly with the hot chocolate.

I found this café by accident while wandering around Potsdam, and I'm so glad I did! It was very difficult choosing a dessert, as they all looked amazing! I chose the nut cake and I was not disappointed! I will certainly be heading back here again before my trip is over!

If you go there , you need time, TIME is important, cause you will need lots of it, and this is what they actually tell you in their menu card. So be patient, but it's worth it. We had a Flammkuchen sort of a German focaccia with filet and it was really tasty, nice and friendly service in a cost... More

We went to this place specifically for the hot chocolate and we weren't disappointed. Thick, rich and just the right amount, with a side serving of cream. We've tried some great hot chocolate in our time and this was up there with the best. Plus it is in a lovely setting in the heart of the Dutch Quarter.

Potsdam has the weird timeless feeling especially at the dutch quarter and especially at "La Maison du Chocolat". Bakeries, hot beverages at their best! I strongly advise to go there with your kids!

Nice and chic cafe! As you can guess, this place' main attraction is the chocolate. Its everything and anything about that bloody brown gold! A must try if you at the Dutch-Distric in Potsdam- should be the best one in town. Fair price and good service as well.
