Welecome To Chocolat Chocolate
Cambridge has one of the oldest universities in the world and is a city full of tradition, within a few short steps you can peak into the glorious spires of King’s, the quadrangles of Christ’s College, Trinity and many more each steeped in over 800 years of tradition.
Nestled on the outskirts of the historic city centre is Chocolat Chocolat, voted Cambridge’s favourite chocolate shop, found opposite Emmanuel College and just around the corner from Downing College in a 19th century building.
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 the chocolatiers making our famous sheet chocolate right in front of your eyes. If you take a few steps inside, the smell of chocolate will immediately take you back to the traditional chocolate shops of years gone by.
Chocolat Chocolat is famous for its handmade sheet chocolate, made with the finest Belgian chocolate in a unique French Style brought from France by Chocolatier Isabelle Chappell ; not seen anywhere else, the wavy sheets of chocolate are sprinkled with the best quality ingredients from around the UK and Europe – French Sea Salt, Turkish Hazelnuts, Italian Gianduja, Freeze Dried Fruits, the finest Chinese Ginger -all selected to create delicious flavour combinations which combine the familiar with the unusual.
