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.

Food was okay; unfortunately, the place is quite loud and even though we had finished our meal, the server came to us and asked us to pay which felt a bit odd. The cafe wasn't closing for a couple of hours afterwards, but it felt as though the service was rushed at the end.

If you're taking kids to Coro for a chocolate treat then it's great - the menu delivers and it's all presented in a way that kids will love. The non-chocolate crepes and other options are underwhelming, the restaurant is slightly grubby and the noise levels high but but that's not what most people are there for. It's fun and indulgent, just not for everyone.

Fantastic cafe! There were so many choices, the kids and I loved it all. I never thought I'd see the children defeated by chocolate but they couldn't manage it all so the box to take home was perfect!

The food was good but the slate it was served on is inadequate for the pancakes, bacon and eggs. When you pour on even a little maple syrup it runs straight on onto the table and you end up with sticky fingers and wrists. The waitresses must spend more time cleaning tables.

Food was fantastic and probs the best in Edinburgh but service was shocking and waitress was unhappy as I asked for the bill and why it roughly wasn’t the same as what I thought it was going to be, I was they then inform me they had added a service charge as that’s normal for them at Coro, I explained one of order was late and I had to ask twice what’s happening with it as we had planned to all eat together, i then asked waitress to remove the charge and she was happy about it at all !!!. Would go back but not in a rush shame as food was 10/10

I had to wait on my friend arriving and was completely ignored for 25 minutes.
We were never approached to ask if we wanted anything else.
We asked for the bill and after waiting another 15 minutes had to ask for the card reader.
Sadly we won’t be rushing back.

Too slow...it was an hour from our reservation time to getting our food. Too long and we wished we hadn't bothered! Staff were working hard though...not their fault just understaffed.

Lovely little place for a sweet treat. Our strawberries were not fresh but we were given a 15% discount of our bill which made up for this. The bacon on the waffle with bacon and egg is precooked and pretty rubbish. But the actual pancakes waffles are delicious. I would order more simply the next time. I actually think the menu is too complex and should be reduced in size

This place is heaven for people who like waffles, quality chocolate and great atmosphere. If it would be a possibility I would give 6 stars or even more! This place is a bit hidden paradise for sweet lovers 😊

We had a fabulous time yesterday ... our server was calm and friendly despite the chaos of 6 people ordering, changing their minds and being fussy. The food was delicious and the joint opinion is that we need another trip to Edinburgh to visit again. Thoroughly recommend Coro to anyone looking for somewhere special to visit.
