A haven for sweet-toothed foodies
Coro The Chocolate Cafe

My flatmate and I decided to take a short break from the stresses of university life and visit a small, second-floor café. Situated on Frederick Street, Coro the chocolate café is a haven for sweet-toothed foodies, serving everything from waffles and crepes to milkshakes and hot chocolates (where you can decide between regular and 'seriously rich'), away from the hustle and bustle of Princes Street shoppers. And for those not craving a sugar fix? There's a selection of teas and sandwiches, too.

Be prepared to wait for a table in this popular, yet rather small café, though rest assured it is worth the wait as everything is cooked on site and served swiftly, with portion sizes being respectable (if you ever manage to decide on something from the 5 pages of treats, that is). The price range is rather high compared to your standard café though, with milkshakes starting at roughly £4 and most sweet items starting at £5 per person- making it somewhere you're unlikely to make your regular coffee stop, particularly if you're a student in the area.

Tea @ Coro The Chocolate Cafe

After some deliberation, I decided upon the waffles with cream, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries- all topped off with a raspberry coulis.
The menu does allow for some changes, however, so you can really create your own if nothing on the menu quite takes your fancy. I added dark chocolate sauce to my own order to really tie the whole dish together, which is something I can wholeheartedly recommend. To avoid a chocolate overload, I paired this with a pot of tea (that arrived with milk in an adorably quirky jug).

Waffles @ Coro the Chocolate Cafe

The presentation was impressive, and it took me a while to decide to actually eat the artwork I had been given. It was sweet, warm and oh so chocolatey- and what more can you ask for than that?

Pros: Tasty treats, warm atmosphere, lots of choice
Cons: A fair walk from Old Town, quite expensive for a café

But don't just take my word for it, visit their website: Coro The Chocolate Cafe
