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.

Waffles and pancakes were dry and feel as if they were re heated, very disappointing

The food was very sweet ,almost sickly ,large portion for fondue,but we did choose the sweet option,not the savoury.Staff were helpful,service prompt.and there was a carry away box for leftovers.Needs more of a balance with savoury items.
Convenient location,difficult access for wheelchair or mobility issues.Children would like it

Fantastic. Great service and amazing food. Great treat for the kids who loved putting together their own concoction! The adults had a good time too - who can beat chocolate!

A bit scruffy. Loud machines making drinks (I think)
Lots of teens, and I was there with an elderly aunt - it was the only place open!
Menus battered and dog eared- everything seemed a bit tatty.
High point was our lovely server- and everyone was v friendly. Unrushed atmosphere.

It was a scrumptious treat to have for dessert. It was rich and the food wasn’t too hot or too cold. The service was great and the waiters were very kind. I would highly recommend.

This restaurant was very nice, especially now with the Christmas decoration. The staff were friendly and the food was delicious. I would recommend to families and friends. If you don’t feel like eating, you can have a nice shot of hot chocolate with different flavours!

The waffles were amazing. Couldn’t fault the food at all. Good service, the girls were really nice. The only mark down is because it felt a bit tatty. The menus had seen better days as had the cutlery and there was an old bit chewing gum or something on the windowsill next to the table. Would go back for the food though.

Enjoyed our visit. Food was nice - daughter had the chocolate fondue whilst husband and I had tasty savoury crepes. The staff were really pleasant, friendly and kept the place absolutely spotless.

Only drawback was the noise. It was pretty noisy with coffee machines etc. I would visit again but request a table through the back.

Excellent food and service. Very child friendly and a great location too.

My only suggestion for improvement would be that the decor and toilets could be modernised. While the staff were lovely, it felt a little bit like a canteen. Maybe something to think about once we're back to normal...

Overall though would definitely recommend. Great place.

Asked to be seated away from people due to one of us on cancer treatment which I understand the café was quite full but would’ve been handy to be sat at the back a bit more away from people. But other than that it was great and great food for our first date

Lots of choice, food was really good, it was my table making noise as I had 4 young girls but I thought the staff dealt well with the many requests.
There appeared to be only one working toilet when I visited which didn’t help when the girls wanted to go in two by two.
Had to ask to order and again for the bill.... I wasn’t sure if you had to ask or whether it was just busy and the staff didn’t realise.
Would recommend the cafe to friends

We had a table booked but we still had to wait for our table to be ready. Once we were seated, they took over half an hour to come back to our table and take our order. The staff are way too young and you can clearly see them struggling, I had to stand up and ask to speak with a manager to asked for someone to come to our table. Perhaps is simply inexperience but unfortunately last few times we didn't manage to have a good time. Plus at the end, they tried to charge us a service charge which was unbelievable.
I would suggest explaining to your staff it is not necessary to ignore your customers but simple just come to the table and be honest (you won't be taking any orders and will be back as soon as you can) is simple, but it is really rude if you make eye contact with a customer and then just decide to turn around and ignore.

Delicious food. I thought the savoury crepes would be heavy but they were really light and left just enough room for a dessert.
