  • ask Rene to play the bongos !
  • Skeptical at first, but the proprietor here makes it all worthwhile! So friendly. Ask about his 5D. =)
  • Rene is an amazing, eccentric chocolatier. Get the VOLCANO and you're sold. It's entertaining watching him make it.
  • Can never go wrong with a Volcano - it's liquified chocolate heaven
  • Quickly becoming a Philly institution. Come for a volcano (best hot chocolate drink in the city), come BACK for Rene, who makes every visit an event. You'll be hooked... everyone is.
  • get the chocolate creams ! they're a piece of chocolatey heaven !
  • Ask Ren to surprise you. You won't regret it!
  • The best hot chocolate I've ever had in America. It's so rich and decadent that it overflowed with 3 different kinds of melted and shaved chocolate!!
  • So true
  • Celebrating the Don's birthday with friends. Bon anniversaries, Ren!
  • Do not take out. Sit down and enjoy the artistic creations. The cannoli are so good. My favorite drink so far is the marshmallow brle hot chocolate!
  • Ask Ren to surprise you!
  • Just go here. Bring your sweet tooth and belly laughs.
  • Be sure to ask for the Cherian special.
  • Closed for most of the summer while Rene goes back to Monaco to spend time with his fam.
  • Chai tea and cannoli . Unique place
  • I liked the coffee americano but if you are thinking about coming here to do work, finding a plug is next to impossible and the table is only big enough for a laptop.
  • Everything
  • Chocolate treats are better than hot chocolates. Get the chocolate peanut butter pretzel (AMAZING) and truffles! Buy the $6-for-$10 deal on Yelp to get 10 truffles for $6 (normally $2 per truffle).
  • Dark lava ganache = okay but way too bitter, even for me (a dark chocolate lover). Godfather tiramisu is pretty good, a bit too sweet though lol.
