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.

Great food and price but service was terrible and didn’t receive half of order as they were so slow with drinks so we cancelled them as all the food etc had been eaten before we could catch someone to ask where they were.

Had a lovely afternoon treat at Coro on our visit to Edinburgh. Cinnamon bun crepe and shortbread waffle were both extremely tasty and a good size portion. Really enjoyed it!

After waiting for 35 mins one of the servers came over and apologized for the delay as the printer sometimes misses orders.
Food came quickly after that,not his fault but just a bit disappointing that's all.
the place its self was ok a bit cafey like nothing amazing sadly .
Food was nice but again not really wow so would not be a rush to go back.

Our 3rd or 4th time to Coro’s but wanted friends visiting Edinburgh to sample the delights of Coro’s. Got to say we weren’t left disappointed. Everyone loved it. One of my kids favourite places for waffles and crepes! Can’t wait to come back.

I was far from satisfied after our visit. I expected a restaurant, whose servers knows how to look after their customers, how to give them good advice, but unfortunately, this was not the case.

In Edinburgh, I was always looking for a good hot chocolate as I haven't drank many good quality ones so far. I like dense chocolate and when I asked the server for advice when choosing from your menu, she said that the same chocolate as they use for Fondue, is the one, I should order. Instead of dense chocolate I have received a drinking chocolate I can get in Sainsbury's for half the price I have paid.

No water was offered to us, I consider it a must-do for any hot drinks, especially hot chocolate as it is really sweet, to have something to neutralise your tastes. Had to ask for it one server, which was too busy to notice us for quite a while. No napkin was provided with the drink. When I took out the spoon from the glass, whipped cream spilt over and ended on the table, and didn't have anything to wipe it with.

On arrival the staff member who greeted us wasn't the most enthusiastic so I wasnt sure we'd made the right choice. However this must have been a blip as when she came to take our order she was very nice as were all staff we dealt with. Food was brilliant! Thought at first it was a bit pricey however when the freshly made portions arrived, we were more than happy. Will be back to try more from the menu!

Appealing to someone with a sweet tooth, however food was average and in particular the service was very poor. Young blonde girl that served us had a face like a smacked bottom and barely muttered two words to us the whole time. Place was cramped and noisy, can’t see us going back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Coro. The hot milk chocolate and the salted caramel milkshake were both excellent. I ordered two waffles with Jaffa cakes and melted chocolate and it was great but I wished I’d ordered the millionaire shortbread caramel waffles which my husband had. He ordered 4 waffles, I ordered two, but actually I had one of his so we each had 3!!!
Very filling and very sickly but if you have a sweet tooth this place is for you.

From the moment we walked in we didn’t feel welcome, we had to wait 25 mins to place our order, I went up to ask the servers if I order at the till as we have been waiting for 25 mins and all the serving staff where standing playing on their phones and chatting, once we finally got our food, the coffee we ordered was cold and the waffles where also cold, and as soon as we had finished the bill was placed on our table without us asking for it, I felt like we where being rushed out. Which is a shame because I was looking forward to coming here as it was our first time here and sadly will be our last

Lots of choice of desserts, too many to choose from and just off of Princes Street making it very convenient and easy to find. All staff were very pleasant and helpful and very helpful when I mentioned my nut allergy (which I mistakenly forgot to do before I ordered). The gentleman who had served us and sat us down kindly checked quickly and there were no nuts so I was able to enjoy my Oreo Waffles which were amazing. My partner had the banana and chocolate waffles which looked equally as good. Overall a very nice experience and lovely place for dessert or nice cup of coffee, would definitely be back next time we're in Edinburgh.

Great service from our waiter and wonderful food, but we were sat in the back room of the cafe in a booth between the service counter covered in crockery and an area used to store some empty cardboard boxes. It was all a bit crammed in. The front of the restaurant love looked far more inviting I have to say.

This was a return visit for some of us, this time for a birthday brunch. The atmosphere is fun and friendly, although it gets really loud in the cafe so it is not easy to have a conversation. The staff were helpful and efficient and we weren't waiting long for food despite it being a busy Saturday. The waffles were light and a 2-waffle portion was the right amount for brunch. Great range of toppings for the crepes, waffles and pancakes. Savoury pancakes were tasty too. Overall it was very good. I'd love to see a couple of soups on the menu as a bowl of soup followed by a crepe or waffle would be great at lunchtime.

We decided on Coro the Chocolate Cafe for a birthday brunch and we were pleasantly surprised by the food. I had crepes with chocolate, strawberries and cream and my partner had chocolate orange waffles. Both were very nice and we would definitely go back! The restaurant itself was quiet at the time of day we went which was about half 10. Would definitely recommend for those with a sweet tooth!
