Chocolate Afternoon Tea
Coronavirus update - 18 March
We're still hosting Afternoon Tea Parties, as long as we're able to. If you've already book but can't come in, don't worry – you can either postpone and rearrange for another time, or we might even be able to arrange a home delivery service, so you can have a Chocolate Tea Party in your own house. Please do call us if you've got any questions.

Read all about our menu...
We have lovingly developed our Chocolate Afternoon Tea menu to include food linked to our family, friends, favourite shops & producers and, of course, chocolate, to create something we think is quite special. Our aim is to make you to feel special too while enjoying our Cocoa Wonderland tea party, so it's time to get out the best cake stands, cutlery and tea cups. For us, it's all about the little touches – like using Kate's treasured Great Aunt Enid's embroidered tablecloths and chutney made by Kate's dad.
Afternoon Tea Sandwiches
Even the savouries contain chocolate – this is a chocolate afternoon tea, after all! So your Afternoon Tea selection will include finger sandwiches and open sandwiches made from homemade, locally sourced Yorkshire ingredients.
Our homemade chutney is made by Kate's dad 'Picklin' Ric' using our very own 10th anniversary Thornbridge Chocolate Porter beer. We're very excited about our homemade Sticky Chocolate Balsamic Glaze too – just wait til you try it! The richness of the glaze works wonderfully well with the nuttiness of the hummous and bitter leaves. And you couldn't have Afternoon Tea without cucumber sandwiches, could you? They have escaped the chocolate infusion, so are perfect little palate cleansers before you delve into the next course of chocolate...
Our homemade scones are topped with flakes of toasted cocoa bean and accompanied by clotted cream and our homemade chocolate strawberry jam, also made by Picklin' Ric.
"Thank you for the truly fabulous afternoon tea. It was amazing!! Nicest one I've seen by a long stretch - so much thought & effort has been put into it. Absolutely delish! I like the fact there are local connections mixed in with all the chocolate confections too. Yum yum yum yum."

Even the savouries contain chocolate. It is chocolate afternoon tea, after all!
We are famous for our speciality 'proper' thick hot chocolate made with cream and the finest Belgian dark chocolate. It's more like a liquid truffle than a hot chocolate! Every Cocoa Wonderland Afternoon Tea contains a dainty dose!
Your Afternoon Tea will also include the Brownie of the Day, freshly dipped chocolate strawberries and a chunk of award-winning Tipple Tails 'Coco Bazaare' chocolate fruit cake. This is a mysterious and unusual chocolate fruit cake with an eastern twist, laced with pistachios and honey, spiced with cardamom and infused with an exotic Chocolate Rose liqueur, handcrafted by Jane Stammers in Sheffield – perfect with a cup of our English Rose loose tea to really set off the decadent flavours.
Endless Helpings of Tea
Tea is our second favourite thing (after chocolate!). For your Afternoon Tea, you can choose from a rainbow of loose teas from all around the world. We blend our own speciality teas and have 15 varieties to choose from. The Chocolate Cake Tea (honey bush tea with chocolate and rose petals) and Black Forest Tea (black tea, chocolate & truffle oil) are our top recommendations to add to your chocolatey experience. You can also choose from traditional sodas (like pink lemonade & ginger beer) or Smithstreet Sheffield roasted coffee.
To top off your Afternoon Tea experience, make up your own duo chocolate box of handmade truffles from our extensive collection – choose from over 30 varieties made in store and locally. Too full after all those chocolate treats? No problem! We'll wrap up your box, so you can take it home for later.
Please be aware we are a small chocolate shop in a former Victorian Terrace house serving tea and cake. This is a perfect setting for anybody looking for a quirky, cosy more intimate setting to enjoy Chocolate Afternoon Tea. We urge you to visit the space before booking.
