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 started going to Coro years ago when they had their place in Cannonmills, and I loved it - the food, the service, the ambience… it was a treat! But the last three or four visits to Coro have been disappointing to say the least. Last weekend I went there with a friend and made a booking. It took someone 10min to come to the door to welcome us, but there were staff going in and out of the place. Despite having empty tables at the front, we were ushered to our table, at the back, away from other customers and where clearly a staff meeting was taking place. I had to ask a member of staff to move to sit on my chair as she was standing blocking it. Because of all the noise I had to request to be moved to the front. After we ordered the food came quickly but no cutlery or water had been brought so we had to request them. Our food was pretty cold by the time we ate it. The food was lovely, although my friend was out off by seeing the hygiene standards - no gloves, staff cooking with long hair that went to their face, staff going out to sit on the stairs and picking food on their way back without washing their hands, etc. I understand that it’s a place tailored to young people mostly - staff are pretty young and you get that they work well together but we didn’t feel there was a manager there and therefore the service wasn’t organised at all. I went through the trouble of booking but I got an even worse experience than usual. I hate leaving bad reviews, which I very rarely do but I had to leave feedback this time. I won’t be coming back for a while, as sad as it is.

    The waitress was just so lovely, helpful and engaging. The food was fab as always. Best thing is that Bubble Waffles are gluten free.

    Used to really enjoy visiting coro. Last 2 times we’ve been the service has been very slow. On my most recent visit we decided to leave as it took so long for someone to even come over to serve us! With a 2 year old getting a bit restless we decided to go elsewhere. It wasn’t particularly busy and there were plenty of staff not really seeming to be doing much but standing together talking. On a separate note there were a set of ladders leaning against a wall. Didn’t seem very safe to me. Won’t be back any time soon.

    We came here as coro in Glasgow was our favourite place but it is now closed. We waited 40 minutes and I had to ask how long our food would be as I had booked an event afterwards. When it came it wasn't very warm whereas the one in Glasgow you couldn't you've the bowl so I think we were forgot about. Due to the waiting time we had to rush our good down. The food was lovely but our experience would have been better if it was warm and not having to wait as long.

    The food is delicious, very generous portions, it’s a great treat. Service was a bit slow, felt like ages waiting to be served and for order to arrive. At the end card reader didn’t work so had to wait some more. Overall food there is amazing, just the service needs improvement.

    Staff were friendly and polite, service was great and can’t be faulted at all. I was more than happy with that! 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.

    Would like our money back, waited a hour n a bit on food to be told the system was down? 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.

    Entrance could do with a clean up there was a paper cup discarded in its side and the area looked a bit grubby. An easy fix to make the area look better. One member of staff not overly friendly others very nice. Food excellent.

    Staff need better training. Got our order wrong and forgot to bring us some of the food. Some people had finished eating before other peoples food at our table had even arrived and our bill total was incorrect. Food is nice but massive improvement on staff capabilities needed.

    Busy from 3.30 till 5pm and then considerably quieter. Lots of children enjoying the fare so quite an ongoing babble. 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.....

    It was a bit disorganised and I had to ask several times before drinks were brought to the table! 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.

    We went on a sunny and warm day and there were no blinds at the windows so we felt we were slowly melting. It was also quite noisy with music playing and staff getting on with tasks behind the bar area, but food was lovely

    The food was great, but the service was painfully slow despite there being more staff than customers! 15 minutes from being given a menu till taking our order for example. If you’re not in a rush, it’s definitely worth the wait for the food though

    Great place, so glad we booked - probably needs a quick lick of paint and tidy up but only because its probably really busy and I can see why - lovely food, lovely people running it and serving etc - savoury offering I know is not the key thing at such a place, but they could be slightly bigger to compete with the portions given when ordering one of the many many sweet options - all in all though, really good

    Lots of items off the menu- including all milkshakes, all smoothies, all cookie dough, a number of cheesecakes and the chocolate cake. Food arrived with wrong choice of ice cream vs cream- but was resolved quickly. Just very disappointing to not have the choice.

    Would’ve been my second time going but turns out the cafe is closed for 2 weeks for renovations. 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.
