Last Friday, after browsing through book after book after book at Borders (at least, I did!), Hubby, Abby and I had dessert at what I’d describe as a “posh” dessert cafe cum wine bar cum chocolate shoppe. It’s called Viva Chocolato.
This pic was lifted from Viva Chocolato’s website. The rest are mine. :)
The photo above was obviously taken during the day and I have to say that the place comes alive at night, when the air is filled with the laughter of wine and chocolate lovers and live music is played by a guitarist/singer. Notice that brightly lit little room at the far end? It’s where private parties are held! A chocolat party! That’s my kind of party! ;) Viva Chocolato hosts parties for kids and adults alike.
We sat at a quiet corner on a high table with matching bar stools. I love the red and white thing going on with the lamps. :D
Abby, as usual, had strawberry ice cream!
Hubby and I shared a slice of Ebony and Ivory cake ($6.95 a slice!!!). The “ivory” frosting tasted like cheesecake and the “ebony” was rich and moist. I loved it! At that price, I was determined to make myself love it! Hahaha!
I would love to come back to this place for a sampling of their truffles. I just found out that they have happy hour everyday from 4-7pm and one can pair a glass of wine with a truffle for 4.95. ;) How chic is that?!
