A happy place
I can’t believe that I haven’t gone into Chocola.j, a little store in Northcliff (just off of Beyers Naudé), before. It’s been there for more than two years, I think. But I have now and that’s the important thing.
Chocola.j specialises in some of my favourite-favourite things: chocolate, pastries and coffee! But chocolate is the main priority. Bless their chocolate-making hearts!
In addition to their own brand of hand-crafted chocolate bars and truffles, there are yummy cupcakes in a range of flavours (think: Bar One cheesecake, Strawberry Pavlova and Rocky Road), supersized cookies, brownies and muffins, as well as coffee and hot chocolate on the menu. They also offer macaroon- and truffle-making classes and make delicious things to order. I’m thinking about a White Chocolate Chai Cake... Hmmm...
You can sit down (and take in the happiest smell of chocolate and cakes baking) or take away! I was there on a Friday when they had their brownie special, so I did both! Of course. Check Chocola.j out here.
