Beyond the bright red door lies a stylish Brunswick take on Willy Wonka's chocolate factory - except here, the sweet stuff is handmade by a passionate Frenchman. Cocoa and coffee beans are accorded equal reverence, with a strong focus on origin and quality. Hot chocolate fans will be impressed by the array of options (origin, cocoa percentage), and coffee drinkers fare well with classy single origin picks from the Market Lane stable, like the Rwandan Musasa with its silky mouthfeel and complex, floral aromas: a winner with the legendary chocolate fondue with fruit and toasted brioche.
