Dessert
At Coro we believe chocolate should be a fun and sharing experience. We don’t claim to be master chocolatiers, in fact its quite the opposite. Our aim is to give customers their chocolate fix but not just from your standard bar of chocolate. We pour our chocolate over freshly made pancakes, into our buttery crepes and drizzled onto of our fluffy waffles. If thats not enough we’ll give you a fondue to dunk some fresh fruit, cake or sweets into melted chocolate with a hot chocolate like no other to wash it all down.

I've had such a good time that when I went back home I've had a sore stomach from all the chocolate that I've had there.

I'm going again soon.

Yes really enjoyed the food we have been before on this occasion service wasn’t as good. We brought our two sons 11 and 1 we were rushed as soon as we got in the door. When food arrived it was really good we really enjoyed it especially my 11 year old son it was a treat for him. My son was still eating and the waitress came over and took his food away while he was still finishing his ice cream. All felt really rushed like they wanted out table but we booked in advance and we under an hour we weren’t there long at all

We booked at table and were glad we did! The cafe is not particularly clean and the glasses were dirty. There were empty table sitting for a while, not cleared, even though there was a queue outside.
We had a wait of about 20 mins for our food which is a bit long. The problem is lack of staff. Our waitress was lovely but rushed off her feet.
The food was fab but the ambiance is a bit lacking and the place needs more staff

I came here with 2 friends with high expectations as everyone I know who had been had told me it's great you must go. However I did enjoy my savoury crepe my dessert crepe I found 2 hairs in it. The waitress kindly took it off my bill which I was very happy about. Although the 2 hairs put me off enjoying my dessert so I couldn't really finish it. Wont be rushing back I'm afraid.

I love this place and have been many times. The food is always really tasty and the staff are friendly and welcoming. The only criticism is that it seems to take a long time for the drinks to arrive.

Staff were friendly, food was good and value for money. Waiting 45-mins for the food (when the cafe wasn’t busy) did put a dampener on the visit.

Food was lovely. Nice and quiet, mid week just before lunch time. Service pretty average, nothing bad just nothing that memorable

the food and drinks were delicious. the overall setting could use more improvements, some more cute furniture like armchairs would be more fitting to the theme.

Food was lovely. Went with my mother and my son and can’t complain at all about the quality of the food. The service on the other hand was shocking. I had ordered a large latte and when it came it was cold, so I told the server and it was obvious that she wasn’t happy. anyway, got another one, which was also just warm. I didn’t bother complaining again as by this time, as service was slow, I had almost finished my crepes, which were lovely. The server got our bill (without us asking) and asked if everything was ok with the meal. I told her it was fine but twice I had been given cold coffee. She just completely ignored this and walked away. Would go again for the food, but would think twice due to the attitude of the staff which is a shame

The food was amazing!! Unfortunately the place was really loud, that was a bit of a bummer. The staff was really helpful and tried to accommodate all our wishes.
I loved that you could customise almost all dishes / pancakes, waffles, crepes, etc

Absolutely brilliant, food is tasty and perfectly priced. Staff are friendly and quick so your not sitting waiting forever to get some service. I would certainly recommend this place to anybody who loves chocolate. Personally I would recommend the chocolate cake or pancakes there beautiful!!

The waffles were delicious and the restaurant and staff were welcoming. Would definitely recommend.
Only criticism among the group I was with was that the restaurant ambience was let down a bit by the bathroom facilities which although clean enough, were a bit spartan.

A lovely, quaint spot with excellent food. Both, savoury and sweet crepes were simply wonderful- absolutely delicious. Service just a little slow but given how busy the restaurant was,not a surprise. Lots of noise but the food and drinks worth it.

We took my son here for a surprise treat on his birthday. As such, a candle might have been a nice gesture, especially since I mentioned on phoning to increase the table size that it was my son's birthday! We went around 8pm on a Wednesday night and there were plenty of tables. Service was efficient. Food was good although my son perhaps didn't make a particularly wise choice in his 'make your own option' and I think the serving staff could have offered advice on this. We had a nice large central table, however, we were sat close to some ceiling vents or air conditioning and as such, we were continually blasted with cold air.
Overall we had a good experience but some little tweaks could have made it better.

It's great place when you want something sweet. I mean really sweet😉. I love to go there now and then but this is not place for everyday meals. Coro desserts are outstanding.

I had originally booked a table for 7pm which I then modified to 7.30pm and got a confirmation email to confirm. Turned up at the Coro and there were no seats and was told my booking change hadn’t been registered so we had to wait 15 minutes for a table. Five of us were then squeezed around a 4 person table. It was just as well that I didn’t get food or there would not have been enough room. The waitress who greeted us looked a bit exasperated and not exactly welcoming.

The food was excellent and quick to arrive, the cafe needs to be thoroughly cleaned!, toilets in particular, they were really bad, toilet roll on the floor, wet floor, wet all around the sink. The wall decor was peeling off and the walls were stained and mucky!. Food was great but the state of the actual place would put me off returning I’m afraid

We are students so came to do some work after food, we ordered pancakes each and then once finished proceeded to get laptop out but as soon as our food was taken away a girl was over wiping table down whilst we sat there and a boy ran over with the bill even though we were considering more drinks and possible share a fondue so we got laptops out, done our work and left feeling they wanted the table free when they could have had more orders from us which is a shame!

I really enjoy Coro cafe and like all the products, however this time I was not satisfied with the service provided. As soon as we finished with our food, we have been given receipts and asked to pay as there were other bookings on the table later on. Appreciate it was Pancake Tuesday and cafe was busy, but surely this could have been done in a more professional way, plus I have not been informed at the time of booking that I can use the table for a limited amount of time. Perhaps this should have been announced im advance to avoid disappointment.
