Chocolate House

Hi everyone,
I want to start a new series of blogposts about places I like and would recommend. I know not that many people come to Luxembourg but if this helps even one person, I'm happy. 
I'm starting the series off with one of my favourite little gems, Chocolate House. The names speaks for itself really. It's the place where my boyfriend and I went on our first date, so it has a special place in my heart all to itself. 
They are best known for their chocolate spoon drinks, which is exactly what it sounds like. You get a mug of hot milk and a wooden spoon with a block of chocolate attached, you just have to dunk it in and the chocolate melts, turning the milk into a deliciously rich hot chocolate. They have a whole wall of different flavoured chocolate. Literally. They also do standard coffees and teas, a large array of chocolates, as well as milkshakes and ice creams, which are perfect for spring. Best of all, they make lovely cakes. I personally wouldn't call standard Luxembourgish cakes as real cakes. They mostly do fruit tarts, but hardly ever real sponge cakes. Chocolate House, however, makes amazingly delicious cakes. Everytime you go, there is a large assortment of cakes, which can also be a bad thing if you have a delicious cake one day and they never make it again. But you are sure to find something you like. The prices can be a bit high for certain things, but to be fair the portions are huge (you can take it home if you can't finish it!). It's definitely a nice treat for a special occasion. 
It is located right opposite the palace in Luxembourg city. The address is 20 Rue du Marché-aux-Herbes and they are open every day until eight in the evening.
If you know of any more hidden gems like this in Luxembourg, let me know!
