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.

Just amazing waffles and crepes. Would have given 5 stars across the board but americano was just ‘good’. My wife would highly rate the white hot chocolate.

We enjoyed the food & the window seat (where we could watch the road workers drilling outside, which made the visit a little noisy for a while (though NOT Coro's fault)) .

The only thing that detracted from the experience was that it felt like we were being rushed to leave before we'd even finished. I'd finished, but my daughter still had 3/4 of her bottle of milkshake to drink when a staff member appeared and asked if I was ready to pay.

There was only one other occupied table at that point, and no-one else waiting for a table.

Giving customers a few minutes to finish and digest lunch rather than springing to the table to start getting them out the minute one puts their spoon down would make for a better customer experience.

Absolutely delicious!!! BEST CREPE EVER!!!!
Good value with decent portions.
Staff all very friendly if not maybe understaffed (it was busy and most of their time was dedicated to filling orders for deliveroo.) In saying that they were super cheery & made up for it!

Food was good, nice presentation & tasted lovely but service & acknowledgement by staff was lacking. They were more involved in getting the takeaways out the door than engaging with customer sat in the store.

For an unexpected visit at short notice we were accommodated once we booked online.
It was my anniversary and a request for special wording to make my wife happy was met.
I am not a chocolate person but the whole experience was fantastic and I would recommend this place for any chocolate connoisseur!
A genuinely great experience!

We had the waffles, pancakes and cookie dough which were amazing. But unfortunately the strawberry milkshake tasted like nothing. Cafe decor is lovely but the sound of the blender is too loud.

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
