USA Today: Nine Amazing American Chocolate Cafes, Bars and Lounges

We currently have seven Seattle-Area Mocha Cafés serving up rich chocolate mochas made with real melted chocolate and our very own expertly roasted coffee beans. Not a coffee lover? Then try a hot chocolate also made with real melted chocolate. Whether it’s a decadent mocha, or tasty hot chocolate, you can customize your beverage with the chocolate of your choice. From deep, dark chocolate at 72% cacao, to creamy milk chocolate at 31% cacao, the choice is yours.

Other delicious chocolate offerings include chocolate truffles, cakes, and chocolate mousse, all available at every Mocha Café location. Our Broadway location in Capitol Hill also boasts a wide variety of chocolate martinis.

Whether you are a Seattleite, nearby Washington neighbor, or happen to be visting the Emerald City, we hope to see you soon!

Valentine's Day is done right with Dilettante gourmet chocolates.

Valentine’s Day is done right with Dilettante gourmet chocolates.

Love is in the air, along with the scent of luscious chocolates from Dilettante!

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, you can’t go wrong with the classic gift of delicious chocolates. This year we’ve introduced a few new Valentine’s items that are sure to please all of the special people in your life.

Chocolate Roses

A rose by any other name would taste just as sweet – at least when it is made of creamy milk chocolate! We make each rose using the highest quality chocolate couverture and attach them to beautiful faux rose stems. Available wrapped in red or pink foil, wouldn’t these luscious chocolate roses make a great impression?

Dilettante Tip: Create your own bouquet of milk chocolate roses arranged in a beautiful vase. Hold them in place using decorative rocks or glass pebbles found at craft stores.

Salted Caramels in a Red Velvet Heart

The salty-sweet flavor profile has been a much-loved treat in recent years. Indulge your sweetie with a premium assortment of milk and dark chocolate salted caramels. Velvety butter caramels are coated in rich chocolate and topped with a sprinkle of natural Cyprus sea salt. These decadent morsels come tucked inside an elegant red velvet heart.

Dilettante Tip: Pair this gift with a bottle of red wine for an ultra-decadent treat.
