Cocoa Black sits near the heart of the busy town of Peebles, which is popular with tourists and is just over 20 miles from Edinburgh.
The café sits just over a bridge leading off the main street on one of the roads out of town and could be missed.
My advice is don’t. It’s superb. The staff are totally switched on and the woman who served us had her finger firmly on the pulse.
Diet problems are not a problem.
My hot chocolate was served with soya milk. And the range of confectionery befits an establishment linked to Ruth Hinks, UKJ world chocolate master.
The strapline on the user-friendly and hugely informative website which includes recipes is We Live Chocolate.
We’d have no hesitation in recommending this café and I’m now tempted to sign for one of Ruth’s chocolate classes.
