    Rene is an amazing, eccentric chocolatier. Get the VOLCANO and you're sold. It's entertaining watching him make it.

    The tips seem pleasant, but the atmosphere was far from that. The workers were very rude.

    Do not take out. Sit down and enjoy the artistic creations. The cannoli are so good. My favorite drink so far is the marshmallow brûlée hot chocolate!

    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.

    Skeptical at first, but the proprietor here makes it all worthwhile! So friendly. Ask about his 5D. =)
