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.

I always love a trip to the Cafe, it's a shame that the Glasgow one shut. This one is a little bit tired but still a great place to eat

went there to treat a friend, the experience was amazing. Nothing too much trouble for the team who were friendly and really nice to us. The waffles are 10/10 really great place-will be back. Much superior and much cheaper than most other chocolate restaurants

Coro is the best chocolate cafe i have been to. Forget about Kaspas or any other. It's the best choice for chocolate lovers.

I had mixed up some dinner reservations so suddenly realized we didn’t have any for dinner last night. Luckily we found Coro chocolate cafe and were delighted to have crepes for dinner. Delicious.

Disappointing experience here with customer service - waited a good 15 minutes before having to ask to make an order and the order was missing something. I would usually make the excuse of it being the weekend and extra busy when something like this happens but there were only a few tables filled and 4 members of staff taking orders. It was just very disorganised and this has held them back on this occasion. The food was delicious and decent value which is the saving grace but I would choose to go elsewhere now.

Food was good, service was terrible, took a long time for someone to come and take our order, our drinks (included a hot drink) sat on the counter for ages before anyone brought them over despite waitresses being up at the counter several times, no one came and checked on us, had to go up to ask to pay, toilets were not clean.

Booking was easy and simple to do.
On arriving we were greeted well and shown straight to table, apologies were given for unfortunate unavailability of shake drinks - not an issue for us.
Service was perfect, enough time to discuss & choose menu.
Once ordered was pleasantly surprised by the time taken to bring us the goods.
All chocolates were amazing, loved the waffles and pancakes.
Staff were attentive without being in your face.
Very good experience overall.

I didn’t find it clean as there were little flies going around us. Also not very cheap. Whipped cream £1.50 whichever is ridiculously expensive.

The kitchen floor and surfaces looked absolutely filthy. The bottle that the tap water was served was dirty. The staffs aprons were very dirty too. Those waiting to be seated, and without face masks, were sat on a bench next to our table without a dividing screen and not distanced from us.

When you walk in, the smell was amazing! However the food didn't live up to the expectation. We had a cookie dough and a crepe. The food was OK, nothing special considering this is meant to a chocolate place. The servers didn't come and ask how we were doing / offer more drinks when our glasses were empty. The real kicker is that they don't tell you they will add 10% to your bill as a service charge! Whilst I am not against leaving a tip where a tip is earned, I only found out that I'd paid an extra 10% when I asked for a paper bill AFTER I had paid and asked for an itemised receipt. They had sneakily added 10% to my bill and not told me before I had paid.

Love the food in this cafe. Fab for a treat and brilliant place for my teenage son who loves it. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Food is reasonably priced, especially for Edinburgh. I never feel the need to try somewhere else when I need a big chocolate hit.
I have also had savoury here too and it is just as delicious.
Highly recommended.

Unfortunately the blender/food processor was broken during our visit, so milkshakes and smoothies were not possible, this was a bit disappointing.
The tables next to us were also quite busy/noisy, but the staff were polite and efficient and the food absolutely excellent. The chocolate is just the best quality.
