About Chocolat Chocolat: Since it opened in 2009 Chocolat Chocolat can’t claim to have the same long history as the rest of the city, but the shop and it’s range of luxury chocolates are steeped in the traditions of the independent chocolatier. On most days you can look through the shop window and see one of their chocolatiers making their famous sheet chocolate right in front of your eyes. If you take a few steps inside and the smell of chocolate will immediately take you back to the traditional chocolate shops of years gone by, but brought up to date. Our chocolatier learnt her craft in Paris and Belgium, but she scours the world for exciting chocolates and flavours, always looking for tastes that excite the palette. Coming from a Fashion background she believes that chocolate should look as good as it tastes and she ensures that our range of gifts look as good as they taste and are a perfect gift.
