Meet up and Indulge

France is famous for its patisserie, Vienna for its coffee houses, Germany for its Kaffee und Kuchen – but Peebles?  A quiet Border town on the River Tweed, well away from the city bustle of Edinburgh? Once, Cocoa Black was one of Scotland’s best kept secrets.  Now it’s firmly on the map, and looking forward to your visit!

In our gift range, you’ll find award-winning selection boxes, unique chocolate bars, Parisian-style chocolate handbags, and other enticing chocolate delights. Our popular chocolate boxes can be sent in the post, while more delicate gifts need to be picked up from the Chocolate Boutique.

Not sure what to choose? Ask our friendly staff! And find out about our gift vouchers, chocolate and pastry classes and other offerings to make every chocolate lover and home cook’s heart beat faster.
