3 Reasons to Visit Cafe Chocolate

Fresh Food From Local Sources

Cafe Chocolate uses fresh, organic, all-natural ingredients in its menu. As a member of Buy Fresh/Buy Local in Lancaster County, much of the produce served is from Lancaster Farm Fresh. This cooperative seeks to create healthy, high-quality foods from local small-scale family farms. Cafe Chocolate is also part of the Rainforest Alliance. This means that it supports the mission to protect ecosystems, people, and wildlife. By purchasing food from Cafe Chocolate, you will be, in turn, supporting the community and planet!

The Cafe Chocolate Menu, with Many Gluten-Free Options

Breakfast is served all day long at Cafe Chocolate, making it a favorite stop for weekend evening chocolate and peanut butter paninis, sunshine crepes, and morning glory quiche. You will also discover some delicious soups and salads, such as the Portuguese chicken and rice option or West African peanut chowder. Many of these menu options are gluten-free, and a few are gluten free and vegan. Main dishes include a portabella mushroom burger, Lancaster hickory smoked chicken, and Chili con chocolate. The star of the menu, of course, is chocolate! Choose from delectable delicacies, such as a dark chocolate fondue, organic chocolate bundt cake, chocolate-dipped macaroons, or artisanal chocolate truffles. Can you say “yum?!”

You Can Shop at the Cafe Chocolate Store

Another great reason to visit Cafe Chocolate is the store. You can find some delicious chocolates to purchase for a loved one or some local art to bring home as a souvenir. Merchandise includes designer tea mugs, tea infusers, and hand-blown glass vases and flowers. Delicacies include dark chocolate bars, a chocolate lover’s’ gift basket, and dark chocolate ganache truffles. If you truly fall in love, you can also get a “Chocolate for Life” cafe shirt!
