Chocolate café to open in BristolPosted on: 16 Aug 2017
Mrs Potts Chocolate House is to open next month on Bristol’s Park Street, where it will offer a series of sweet snacks to satisfy the city’s chocoholics.
September will see something of a cocoaphony arrive in Bristol, when Mrs Potts Chocolate House opens its doors on Park Street. The café, as its name suggests, will be dedicated to all things chocolaty, with its menu packed full of cakes, pastries, pots and treats all sharing that same irresistible ingredient.
Where the phrase ‘Death By Chocolate’ had previously been the vestige of falsely hyperbolic dessert names, at Miss Potts it feels like it could be a very real threat. Serving indulgent chocolate dipping pots, softly-set tortes, decadent chocolaty Eton mess and premium hot chocolate made with pure ground cocoa, a la the OG chocolate houses of yesteryear.
The café will open in place of the former Tea Birds tearoom at the bottom of Park Street, with a capacity of 30 people. Run by Mr and Mrs Potts, the chocolate emporium is set to open in early September.
Speaking to the Bristol Post, Mr Potts said: “Over the past six months we’ve been hard at work on a number of chocolatey creations and we can't wait for people to try them.
“There’s a strong history of chocolate in Bristol and we’ve done a lot of research into it to make sure we get it right.
“There are some great chocolate shops around but we’re going to provide a unique, cosy experience for our customers which will hopefully mean they leave with that warm, fuzzy feeling we all know and love after eating chocolate."
