'We have the opportunity to open a beautiful chocolate cafe in a heritage building on Wale Street in Cape Town and we want you to be a part of it.

We are going to open a cosy Honest Chocolate café where we’ll serve everything chocolate; from organic chocolate truffles to moist chocolate cakes to hot chocolate and even chocolate ganache smothered sourdough toast.

We’ve secured a beautiful space in Wale Street and we just need to create the perfect chocolate café. If you can see yourself tasting decadent chocolate and coffee combinations at our café, then click on the limited edition offers on the right and be the first group of people to be a part of it.

When we reach our 1st target we will open up more unique rewards!Cape Town’s First Chocolate Café!

We’ve been hand crafting organic chocolate in Cape Town for 4 years now and it’s always been our dream to open a chocolate café where we can serve our chocolate creations along with ridiculously good Honest chocolate cakes, chocolate tarts, pastries, hot chocolate, chocolate milkshakes, chocolate fondues, chocolate pizzas… the list goes on!

It will be a place where we get to share with the public what our passion for chocolate can create in the kitchen. And best part, you get to taste it all.

We will offer dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free and Paleo options, as well as good old fashioned rich chocolate cakes and the like, along with quality coffee made by our dedicated barista using locally roasted beans.

The new, bigger space is situated right next to our current Wale Street shop and features beautiful wooden finishes. With access to the historic courtyard at the back you will be able to feast on chocolate and coffee and feel like you’re in a Florentine villa.

If you love chocolate, coffee and beautiful spaces then have a look at the list of limited edition offers we’ve devised and click on the one or two or three that make you feel happy!'
