Just chocolate is well, just yummy! This chocolate lovers paradise is well worth a visit and more. They have a wide range of chocolates – dark, white, dates, fig & honey, pistachio, tamarind and my personal favourite, marzipan. Marzipan, by the way, is a thick almond paste used in Christmas cakes and pastries. They also have chilli chocolates which I was too much of a wimp to try. They are all “home-made”, i.e. made in the shop itself. They sell the chocolates by weight (you can buy small quantities like 50 gms) and their chocolate boxes make good festive gifts . In addition, they have 4-5 flavours of “home-made” ice-cream – I loved the butterscotch flavour. They also have chocolate flavoured drinks which were nothing to write home about. They do advertise a fondue, which I am yet to try – a chocolate sauce that comes in a hot pot that you can share with your friends – each of you gets a piece of cake that you dip into the sauce.
The decor is ok – pink and blue with glass tables and dining chairs and some sofas thrown in. It has not been very crowded whenever I have visited.
The staff seem extremely professional – they look like they have been trained in a catering institute and seem to maintain very hygenic standards – gloves, caps, aprons, the works. They were also very polite and answered our questions patiently.
Just Chocolate is located at 116, 4th Block, Diagonal Road, Near Ganapathi Temple, Jayanagar, Bangalore, ph: 26343335/6 and is open from 11 am to 10 pm. This is not a very crowded area, so you can park your bike or car on the same road.
