Ladurée has been combining a plethora of styles with its characteristic art and passion, two essential parts of the Ladurée lifestyle. Each of their interiors is an adventure onto itself. The architects of the Ladurée style are meticulous in their work and impressive in their range, as at ease in the 18th century as in antiquity or the times of Napoleon III. They are passionate about everything they build, paint, sew, and upholster, and each unique object they create is conceived of as a dream of sorts. At Ladurée, food is seen as the weaver of dreams, so its interiors couldn’t be anything less than spectacular.

“Loved it! Very welcoming, friendly, and cosy. It gets very busy but is totally worth it! Smooth, delicious chocolate. The hot chocolates are amazing, very light, and creamy. Highly recommended! Salted caramel chocolate brownie is a must!” – Matt G.
Dormouse Chocolates was born to expand on the background of its professional chocolate maker, Isobel. In May 2015 they became the first Bean to Bar producer in Manchester. Their approach to sourcing beans is based on three main principles flavor, transparency, and people. They believe that each of these factors is important to bring you good chocolate. Good chocolate starts with good beans. They seek out the unusual and aren’t afraid to try new things. For chocolate to make it through to its main range of bars it has to have an exceptional taste that is significantly different from what they already offer.

Lindt Chocolate Shop Arndale Centre
Lindt Chocolate Shop Arndale Centre started in 1845 in a small confectionery shop in Zurich. David Sprüngli-Schwarz and son, Rudolf Sprüngli-Ammann first produced chocolate in solid form. Since then its chocolate has been continuously perfected, becoming what it is currently, creamy and rich. An incomparable taste. Quality doesn’t come from taste alone. At Lindt, they pride themselves on knowing that its cocoa beans are sustainably and ethically sourced.
Lindor, Excellence, Pick & Mix, Pralines
“This is a wonderful shop with everything available in the Lindt range, and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. So many flavours of Lindor are available, and the Espresso one is very very good and my personal favourite. Go on treat yourself.” – Tinton A.
Hotel Chocolat is one of the world’s few chocolate makers to actually grow cocoa, on its beautiful Rabot Estate plantation in Saint Lucia. Connecting cocoa-growing with luxury chocolate making and retailing makes them unique in the UK and gives them an in-depth understanding of the factors that impact the final flavour of its chocolate, right from the growing tree. Its house-grade milk chocolates, meanwhile, are 40% and 50% cocoa, and even the white chocolate is 36% cocoa, well above the average.
They have a deep sense of fairness that extends to its farmers, its customers, and future generations. Their cafés are yet another innovation bringing together cocoa-growing, chocolate making, drinks, and food, they are reviving the ritual of drinking chocolate alongside a carefully curated menu of tea, coffee, and snacks including its moreish brownies.
