The café was designed by Masamichi Katayama, founder of the interior design firm, Wonderwall, which is renowned for the spaces it has created for Uniqlo. The shop’s dark brown ceiling curiously resembles a chocolate bar and the walls are covered with white tile. Along one wall is a glass display case with tubs of chocolate, each numbered and bearing a brief description. Everything from strawberry, to jasmine, to cheese flavored chocolates! Customers can place their orders by number. In addition to the chocolate, patrons can order various chocolate drinks, including chocolate tea, and various pastries. The chocornet, a coronet filled with creamy chocolate is particularly popular. Or if you prefer, choose from one of the many individual-sized chocolate cakes.
