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.

Establishment was clean, toilets were also very well maintained. The spray air freshener in there is a nice touch as it’s never pleasant to have to walk into a toilet after you’ve eaten that smells awful. I’m used to cafe & restaurants having relatively unclean bathrooms, so it was nice to see. It would be great to see an accessible and gender neutral bathroom (where possible) as I didn’t see one available. There was no real ambience. Some low-volume relaxing music would be nice, just to create more of a vibe. I can’t recall if there was a radio station playing or not, but it would be nice to have something curated in the form of a playlist or rotational set of playlists etc. Food was unfortunately average for me personally. Some of the strawberries were too mushy and discoloured to eat, the whipped cream had no real flavour and the way the sauce was applied meant that one pancake got everything and the others got none. I would’ve liked to be able to pour it myself or some be poured on every layer of the stack. It wouldn’t be a problem for waffles & crepes, but the pancakes it would be much better. Pancakes themselves were very nice, soft and fluffy, not too sweet and not too salty.

So another half hr on top of that for them to actually pull themselves together and do the order for some reason they were unable to do a hour n a half earlier.

An easy fix to make the area look better. One member of staff not overly friendly others very nice. Food excellent.

The smoothie machine really is unpleasant during its intermittent fare. But staff are very kind, helpful and fun , not to mention very efficient. Of course , the main thing of concern is the menu- waffles, bubble waffles, pancakes, cakes ....all sorts of combinations with the accompanying drinks just as luscious in their mixes. Do not think of calories.....

The savoury crepe was very dry and salty. My daughter had the fondue for one which was lovely! Service was poor, no one came near us for a long while and tables weren’t cleared until other people came in. We shared a jug of water with another table as no one served them any.

Was not told about this and my booking was never cancelled so we didn’t know till we arrived. I don’t think the cafe should expect people to always look on their Instagram page before going. Very poor organisation and inconsiderate service.

Tasted and looked great. My friend had waffles with chocolate and a fruit coulis which he said was amazing. The girls shared a chocolate fondu with fresh fruit. My friend and 1 twin had hot chocolates. Couldn’t fault food at all. It took a while to take our order but we weren’t in a rush and had arrived late. I did phone ahead and luckily they could still take us. It was quiet, weather outside was awful. Young ladies serving were friendly and accommodating. A great experience for the girls who got crayons to colour in. I’d definitely recommend and would go back for a treat.

Plastic glasses when placed on table should not be placed upside down. The dishes were ok but your menu needs to be reviewed If you bring an Americano that has spilled please change the paper tissue especially when it’s table service. Tables need a bit of cleaning as they were quite sticky.

My daughter and I shared a 4 waffle with chocolate sauce, marshmallows, cookies and 2 scoops of ice cream with a soft drink each and it was £17. Definitely somewhere I wouldnt visit regularly.
