The cakes and pastries here are a work of art; exquisite lemon meringue tart, small but wonderfully fragrant and packed with flavour. I had a bakewell tart with pistachio cream and raspberry filling topped with a chocolate raspberry disc. Coffees and hot chocolates are good...too. Staff are lovely too.More

The hot chocolates from here are phenomenal, especially the Hazelnut. Really tasty cakes and sandwiches too, the perfect spot for an indulgent treat.

I spent the last 5 years living in Maynooth. Since L'Art du Chocolat opened up it became one of the things I looked forward to on a Saturday morning. The coffee is great, the food is incredible quality and the owners/staff make you feel like...you're part of the community from your very first visit.More

Any time I am in Maynooth I have to stop off here for the salter caramel hot chocolate. It is honestly out of this world! Highly recommend for anyone with a sweet tooth!

Great coffee great staff lovely food. This place shows the difference in quality. You can buy a cup of crap coffee for 2e in a petrol station but save your money and come here. Its a little extra but so worth it! Defo be back

I love this cafe. The food and hot drinks are best in Maynooth by far. It’s a pity their hot food menu is reduced but the ham and cheese croissant is the perfect snack

What a treat - a brilliant choice of hot chocolates and dairy or vegan milks. We tried the salted caramel (heavenly) and the dark chocolate (husband loved it).
