    The chocolate mousse is a must have! I am not a big fan of the Chai Latte its too sweet and minimalistic on the flavour. The creme brûlée would taste better if they torch the sugar last minute.

    I come here for the macarons mostly and will still continue to come back. Don't be surprised if you encounter rude customers. They take their dessert ordering very seriously...

    Not a huge selection of macaroons and things were all a bit overpriced. Tons of great cafes in the area but this one is all about location and proximity.

    I sometimes ask myself how can such a charming place with excellent food attract an overwhelming amount of rude and uneducated customers? 😔

    PSA - Do not order pastries at Cocola in the evening! The staff did refund the money, but they shouldn't be selling it in the first place!

    The Banana Hot Chocolate is a unique delicious twist on hot chocolate! Also recommend trying the Mango Mousse, 3 Layer Chocolate Cake & Almond Cake!
