Whisk and Hof dominated the chocolate dessert scene in Shanghai for a long while before Godiva opened its first ever chocolate cafe concept store in Xintiandi. It seems like the cafe is already quite popular, as the spacious 2nd floor cafe area was completed filled up when I visited. Is this because of the prestige, the convenient location, or the actual offerings of the cafe?
The interior, dominated by warm chocolate tones, is nothing impressive but comfortable enough to sit through an afternoon.
We first tried the Godiva Chocolate Sin, described as “silky dark chocolate mousse with a chocolate glazed moist chocolate cake, layered with crisp chocolate ganache and crispy crunchies, accompanied by Godiva chocolate sauce and chocolate butter crunch almond crumble.” The actual cake itself was not bad but short of its lengthy description.
