The Chocolatada dates back far before Tea parties, they were much more fashionable, and were essentially one big sociable chocolate party - what's not to love?
Join us at York Cocoa House to have your very own Chocolatada with our Afternoon Chocolate Menu, a combination of our Cocoa House specialities all made with chocolate! Chocolate was once regarded as a hot liquor along with tea and coffee, to be enjoyed in polite society. In fact, the modern day tea cup was first created to drink chocolate from; the saucer would protect the ladies' beautiful dresses. Have your own Chocolatada's with us and enjoy your own table with us at the Cocoa House for your party, you can enjoy one of our hot chocolate's before we serve you a platter of our savoury and sweet chocolate dishes. We hope our chocolate menu will make you wonder why you didn't enjoy chocolate in every dish before.
