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.

Had a lovely experience here! The staff are so friendly and professional. It felt very safe. I only removed a star because in the two toilets they have there wasn’t really running water to wash your hands. It came out in a trickle. Definitely something that’s important at this time.

Food and service were great, as always. Noise levels at Coro tend to be a bit on the louder side (who doesn't have a good time at a chocolate cafe?) but on this visit things were surprisingly calm and quiet. Maybe 16:30 on a Tuesday is the best time to go if you want some peace with your sugar high.

Very friendly staff and lovely food. Really sticky table though and my Americano has been spilled all over the saucer which itself was filthy and sticky underneath. Nice relaxed place.

The service was basic but all that’s needed. The food I had was the bacon and egg pancakes, was served on a slate. This isn’t really feasible when you’re having a runny egg which is going to go everywhere. In addition, the bacon was crispy to the point when it could not even be cut using the knife provided. Furthermore, the two cups provided for the water (white cups) were dirty with one having coffee stains all over. Considering the current circumstances this should be a basic check before being provided.

Came here for a birthday breakfast and it was the perfect choice, the place was fairly quiet so a nice experience. The food as always was amazing and the service was quick.

Big portions and tasty food, but the place is so dirty. Dirty glasses and bottle (even after they were changed for us). Food was slow to arrive, and staff were a bit impatient. Do not recommend, very unhygienic.

Food and coffee were great, service was so slow. The wait between ordering and getting the food was fine but the wait to take our order in the first place and to collect plates was ridiculous.

It was great but service was really slow, asked for the bill and the waitress who we asked went and serviced 3 other tables when we asked again she said "oh yes" and went and serviced another table.

Full of students which we didn’t like. Staff were polite but service took a very long time, was like cooking a steak on an ice cube. Childish.

No distancing practiced. All tables occupied with no divisions or plastic barriers. Forgot two things, so then brought one of them really late asking if we still wanted the other one? Well ordered it so clearly yes. The place doesn't look/feel clean enough.

My children's favourite place for desert. But the service was slow and messed our order up. But we did not complain, when we asked for the bill. To our surprise the manager came over and admitted about the service and asked us not to pay. This shows this place values customer service and we apperciated this honesty sure is a change to admit this without customer complaining. We left a £10 tip.

Staff are lovely and welcoming but our breakfast was not the nicest, the waffles and pancakes were barely warm, the quality of the
aforementioned waffles and pancakes were not amazing, as was the bacon. One of the milkshakes was nice, and the other one we did not drink, maybe personal preference. The table was sticky from what
assume was the previous customers syrup. The cafe got busy at points around the front door which shocked me a little as social distancing should be in place. There was only 3 staff working on a Sunday, where half of Edinburgh are hungover and wanting a decent breakfast.

If you love chocolate then this is the place for you. The whole menu is dedicated to it. The place is rustic and bare. It only does desserts but they do it to a high standard.

Very much enjoyed our visit. My tween daughters had built themselves into a frenzy trying to decide how many different crepes, waffles, fondues and milk-shakes they were going to consume. On the day, of course, the eyes were bigger than the belly and I had a great large strong flat white while the girls had a very nice milk-shake each. I had a really tasty apple & cinnamon crepe which was the right choice as I can't do too much sweet stuff, whilst one of my daughters had an excellent berry crepe whilst the youngest struggled a bit to finish her fruit and marshmallow fondue. With the Eat Out deal it was great value at £17, but even if we had payed full price it would have been worth the experience. Place was heaving and noisy with blenders constantly whirring but it was fun seeing just how enormous some of the dishes were and people were busy photographing their own food and those of others!

Food was excellent, but the place was very small, very loud which was more about the people there than the place it self. Also the free bottle of water was very grubby, so I would avoid that.

The food was incredible! The atmosphere was relaxed, we were given plenty of time to browse the menu but didn't feel we were waiting too long either. It is a nice little cafe, could maybe do with an update of decor, but that is a minor gripe. Would 100% go there again.

Simply one of the best places we have ever been to eat. As a family of 4 we ordered a selection of treats including cheesecake, cookie dough, waffles & fondue platter plus milkshakes and tea/ coffee. They were amazing! We had so much fun. Even a mystery family paid our bill😂

Booked late on a Tuesday night for Wednesday afternoon. We weren't disappointed in the last. Portions were bigger than expected, but the challenge was accepted and we were victorious! Highly recommended!
