On the second floor of Harrods, Knightsbridge, is a chocoholics dream come true – A Godiva Chocolate Cafe. Yes that’s right. One of a kind and seriously perfect for any chocolate lover.
As you walk towards it, you can smell the aroma of excellent quality chocolate in the air and are greeted with a beautiful cafe.
As you enter, there is a large counter displaying an array of stunning patisseries and chocolates. Throughout the room are chocolate coloured shelves and walls all contributing to the chocolate theme running throughout the cafe. The theme is minimal and elegant. If you wish to watch the chefs prepare some of the desserts, you can choose to sit at the counter, however we opted for a table.
You can select from a very impressive menu which includes choices from the Patisserie or the Bakery. There is also a selection of chocolate fondues to share, or you can choose to indulge in the Godiva Chocolate Selections.
If you do fancy savoury dishes, there are light lunch options available on the menu. However, you would seriously have to have some strong willpower not to succumb to the amazing desserts available here.
To accompany your food, you can have either hot beverages or cold beverages. To start with, I had a Cappuccino and my host had some tea. The Cappuccino was perfectly milky, delightful and delicious and just the perk up I needed before the task ahead – reviewing some of the special desserts available at the Godiva Chocolate Cafe.
First to arrive on our table was the Godiva Chocolate Sin Cake. Beautifully presented, this is a glazed chocolate cake layered with a rich chocolate ganache, chocolate mousse praline and crunchy pieces and accompanied with hot chocolate sauce to drizzle all over. Dreamy dessert. Every bite was heavenly and decadent. You can have this in either a milk chocolate or dark chocolate version.
Our second choice was the 1926, a commemorative pastry incorporating fresh and fragrant rose and raspberry flavours to celebrate Godiva’s 90th Anniversary.
Stunning presentation and once you cut into the gorgeous dessert it is a silk, soft and mousse like texture inside which just melts in your mouth. It tastes wonderful and neither of the rose or raspberry flavours is overpowering. It is perfectly flavoured and scrumptious.
The Godiva Chocolate Cafe itself is bright, spacious and has a luxurious feel. It is the perfect venue for a mid-shopping treat, or an oasis of calm from the hustle and bustle of Knightsbridge.
The desserts are served in generous portions and ideal to be shared which makes it a great cafe to catch up with friends and family too, or a special place to go on a date or for a celebration.
Prices are so reasonable and I will be back for the Creme Brûlée next! Or the Chocolate Triple Fudge Cake. Or the fondue! Decisions decisions. I really enjoyed the desserts I had and am so ready to try the rest of the menu one heavenly bite at a time.
