If you like chocolate, this is the place to go for a lite meal and/or dessert. We stopped in for dessert and were not disappointed. We had the couverture dark chocolate drink infused with cinnamon masala. It was rich and hearty with a marshmallow on top for more taste. The great desserts were a bread pudding with mixed berry and... More

This place is known to charge several false transactions on one's credit card. However, the chocolate is excellent; the food is good.

Went to Eclipse Chocolate in the morning for a coffee and pastry. What a great place, great coffee, great drinking chocolate, fabulous homemade pastries and really friendly staff. Our server, Daniel, was so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Eclipse is a little pricey but you get quality.

We used a Groupon deal and went on date night, otherwise the food is pricy. My dinner was the meat pie but the crust tasted like Crisco so it was too thick and too much of shortening. It was also too heavy. Desserts were great thought and the chocolate truffles that we got to take home were excellent. Will probably... More

We got a groupon for a brunch for two, and oh my god were we satisfied when we left the restaurant! Firstly, all their plates contain either chocolate, caramel or vanilla which, for a sweet tooth like myself, is absolute heaven. With the groupon we got a main dish with a side, a dessert and a drink each, plus truffles... More

I've long thought that Eclipse Chocolate is San Diego's finest chocolatier. Now I see that they are adept at meals and beverages as well. Tonight I dined there with my girlfriends on a Besties Night Out. I had the beer-battered fish with a pecan and cranberry spring lettuce salad with bleu cheese. Divine. We all loved our selections and each... More

I went here for Sunday brunch when visiting San Diego on vacation. I chose Eclipse because it came up in a search for gluten-free breakfast and it did not disappoint. Best coffee I've had in a long time. The service staff was knowledgeable about the menu and gluten-free options. More choices than I'm used to when eating out. I was... More

Whenever I think of amazing chocolate, I think of Eclipse Chocolate. The Hot Chocolates are my favorite - I substitute Rice Milk and add Caramel Sea Salt and OF COURSE the marshmallows. DELICIOUS! So is everything on the very decadent menu. To top it all off, we are able to pair local craft beers with the menu items and sit... More
