Cafe Dilettante is open late and is a great place for a drink. The port wine shakes are delicious, as is the Schnocolate Shakes (complete with schnappes). I also tried the Peach Schnappes shake. Hot teas come in many varieties, with a selection of chocolate-covered espresso beans.
We also enjoyed drinking the Copenhagen, a chocolaty-coffee drink made with strong Turkish coffee, a few spices, and their special chocolate sauce.
Alternately, you can pick up a bite of dessert or afternoon snack. You might want some chocolate truffles, a piece of cake, or ice cream. Their cake selection is diverse, enough to please any cake-lover. Their signature Rigu Jancsi cake is moist and delicious. A wide variety of sorbets provides a lighter option.
The decor here includes a very classy, dark wood, and old-fashioned coffee bar. We had no trouble getting a seat in the afternoon or late at night.
They say eating chocolate produces the same hormonal reaction as sex. Well, Dilettante Chocolates is a confirmed multiple orgasm.
