    The best place to get amazing hot chocolate and coffee. The strawberries and chocolate were the best. Staff very friendly. Very clean. Good value. We will be back!

    We really had a lovely time the hot choc is to die for with a new and exciting way of serving it with cream on the side and fruit to dip it. The owner could not have done anymore to make us feel welcome. A nice clean and light place to enjoy. We will return without doubt. Thank you from the Harris family

    This must have changed hands as in the last 12months. There seemed an element of panic and the service was slow, with bits arriving at different times until one friend had finished before the other was served. Rather disappointed.

    The hot chocolate and waffles are to die for. We always visit here when we are in the area, ideal for my sweet tooth. Highly recommended.

    The best waffles I've had, the site is ideal and the boss even more! She is very kind, I am Spanish and she recommend me other places to buy typical Lake District food. The best waffles I've had in my life, super soft. and ice cream too, I don't know if they are homemade but I would say 100% yes.

    This was a great stop when we were in the Lake District. It is a little cafe that has everything chocolatey. I had waffles and hot chocolate. It was so good. I would definitely go back the next time I am in the area.

    Ee my earlier review: Just to be fair the two girls were pleasant and helpful. Just that the previous owner had a definite front of house personality that certainly worked as well as staff working there.

    We have been many times here on our Bowness outings. We loved going to choccobar. We now realise the previous owners did a very high service which hasn't been passed down to new owners. On entering the magazine rack now has only screws sticking out so been removed. Only a small thing but a nice touch thats been removed. The previous owner Mark had an infectious personality which the new owners need to reinstate. The hot chocolate seemed flavourless and watered down more. No cold milk provided or asked if we wanted any. Only one type of fruit with drink whereas previous owner had two. The trifle finger not crispy and unfresh. The cake refrigerated part almost empty. Now just an ordinary establishment rather than extraordinary. We wont be back in a hurry.

    We holiday to this area twice and year and no matter how busy we are, we ALWAYS factor in a trip here!! It has changed hands since our last trip in May, but hadn’t lost any quality or customer service! So accommodating for our very lively children, nothing is too much trouble to keep the kids happy for the owner. And as always, the waffles are incredible. If you haven’t been here, you definitely should.

    First time at Choccobar and an excellent experience Walked in and welcomed by the staff, surprised by how many staff they had behind the counter at least 5 or more Milkshakes were great and my partner loved the churros, my mother having a tea and cake Only thing I would say is we had to sit with our coats on as the shop was absolutely freezing inside

    This place has gone downhill since Mark and his wife left. Used to be heaving - Yesterday it was empty. Staff missed things off our order, no one came to check how things were and portions seemed smaller than previous visits. The customer service just isn’t what it used to be.

    We were not overwhelmed with the food and drink here. The scones were not warmed, in our opinion churros average and the hot chocolate while very rich had an interesting hint of marmite taste or similar, which might simply be a salt.

    Incredible Cafe. The kids were desperate to go because... chocolate obviously! We came in quite late in the day unaware that they were supposed to be closing early but the owner could not have made us feel more welcome. The kids took ages choosing what they wanted but we didn't feel rushed at all. The hot chocolate was superb: my 9 year old boy said it was the best hot chocolate he's ever had! My little girl had a slice of cake and the owner gave us 2 pieces because "it just fell onto the plate!" Pot of tea was perfect. The kids loved reading all the chocolate quotes on the walls. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

    Nice menu and the chocolate drink is delicious, as are the churros. However our visit was spoiled somewhat by what would appear to be friends of one of the waitresses who were also dining. They were quite loud and almost shouting in a foreign language to her, it was a relief when they finally left.

    I came here with my friends today for a little treat! It was absolutely amazing and reasonably priced for the portion size. The owner was so lovely and friendly! She even let us try some of the speciality hot chocolates flavours for free! Will definitely return and tell my friends and family about it! Amazing additional to Bowness! ❤️
