    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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. =)
