Choco Coo is a Belgium chocolate and French dessert shop in Coquitlam right by Sushi California. I came here earlier in the afternoon to grab a drink but it was completely filled by people studying. Everyone looked pretty cozy, so it would have been a 1 hour+ wait for a table to open up. Also, the parking in the little plaza is crazy.
So, I returned later in the evening at around 9pm. It was about a 20 minute wait till a table opened up, but that was ok because I was determined to come here.
The space is very nice and hip. Lovely textures of wood and greenery.
Also, of course a chalkboard. They even have a happy hour special if you come between 1 – 4pm. A dessert and hot chocolate/ice teas are $8.95. Also 2 dessert and 2 hot chocolate/iced teas are $16.95.
You save a few bucks which is nice.
There are lots of cakes to choose from.
I started with an iced milk tea. I find that a good indicator of a café is if they can master a decent milk tea.The first few sips, I felt that it was lacking much flavour like it had too much milk or water.
I do like that it’s served in a double walled Bodum cup, so it stays cold for longer.
They have a bunch of hot or iced teas on their menu. Most of their teas are from TWG Tea.
Fresh Strawberry Cake looks beautiful with the layers of whipped cream, strawberries, and sponge cake. We thought the cake was ok as the sponge cake was a tad dry.
Mont Blanc looks like a person waving its arms around. It has pureed, sweetened chestnuts topped with powdered sugar and hazelnuts. In the centre, there is a piece of cake inside. The dessert was ok.
Overall, it’s nice to have this new cafe in the area as there aren’t too many hip cafes in the area. Plus, Koreans love cafes and coffee. With the teas and cake we ordered, we didn’t really enjoy it as much.
It’s pretty busy here and turnover isn’t very high. So, there may be a wait.
