  • Quality impressive, place spectacular and try exquisite. The price good and very well located. A good option to revel in their cakes and chocolates.

  • Located next to Gendarmenmarkt. On the ground floor, go by the shop which offers a wide range of mouth-watering chocolates, there are also sculptures in chocolates in the sights of Berlin (Brandenburg, Friedrichstrasse, the TV tower gate). Upstairs there is a tea room. The prices are reasonable.

  • High quality chocolate and the service. For us, it handed the 2 pieces from the menu for 4 persons, very tasty but the master. Worth to try!

  • the cafe on the second floor is excellent. The chocolate they sell downstairs make a great gift to bring back home
  • The skill probably lies in their ability to craft really exquisite chocolate rather than its taste. That's not saying their chocolate is poor but rather, you will be paying for the layout and visual sensory.
  • Cakes were cold in the middle. Nice setting but think they trade on their name a bit.
  • Like a modern Willy Wonka's... Hard to decide what to get... Awesome statues made entirely of chocolate...
  • I visited this place over ten years ago and had a very different experience on my return. Having made a point to return - remembering friendly staff, samples to try, and the spectacular chocolate sculptures - it was a bit of a let down. This is still a German chocolate institution well worth a visit but it was a much more impersonal shopping experience.
