I’m talking about chocolate. The one weakness of many, otherwise perfectly disciplined individuals. The Cocoa Cabana is a specialist outlet for handmade, additive-free chocolates. The range of truffles and chocolates available defies imagination. But you should also know that it serves afternoon teas and cocktails.
This is the second outlet for the Cocoa Cabana, which has already made a name for itself with its artisan chocolates. By the looks of things, there will be many more. With its chocolate-based afternoon teas and its cocktails, it looks as if this outlet will be very successful in this highly-populated and busy area. Who'll be able to resist those afternoon teas?
The cocktail list is quite long and chocolate is very much a part of the cocktail ingredients. Many of the cocktails are chocolate versions of established cocktails. One of the philosophies of this outlet is: ‘chocolate and cocktails go together’. They certainly go together in this outlet. Beer is also available. The outlet tries to keep a local brand in stock. Wine is also available, usually an organic or vegan brand.
Afternoon tea at Cocoa Cabana is something very special. Homemade cakes and sandwiches feature along with a hot drink or a glass of Prosecco. Scones with clotted cream and salted caramel are available. There are homemade chocolates in abundance along with various chocolate confectionary items. It’s truly a feast for the senses. Not to mention a chocolate aficionado’s paradise.
Located in busy Murray Street in Ancoats, Cocoa Cabana is a full-on chocolatier, a paradise where a chocaholic can get their fix, no questions asked. At the same time, it’s a cafe with a full menu and a license to serve drinks. This is a chocolate shop for every kind of chocolate. Did we mention that there is practically a separate menu here, dedicated to hot chocolate? We didn’t? Let’s not forget about that! There is, of course, the classic hot chocolate drink. But there are many variations on that theme. You can have it flavoured with orange, mint, ginger and even Biscoff, to name but a few. This is one chocolatier you must visit.
