Zara's Chocolate Shop and

Hot Chocolate Bar

Our beautiful shop, filled with the scent of sweet creations from our kitchen is a real treasure trove of deliciousness! Not only do we offer a fabulous range of handmade products,

perfect for treating the special people in your life, we have a rather special hot chocolate menu and seating area, perfect for relaxing and indulging in.


Please come on in...


We love seeing our customers soak up the relaxing ambience of the shop whilst carefully deciding on their hot chocolate of choice. With lots to choose from, there's something to suit everyone's taste. 

Whilst awaiting the arrival of your hot chocolate, it can be hard not to get distracted by all the shelves full of chocolate goodies, just waiting to be purchased and taken home (if you're able to wait that long!) From varying flavours of chocolate bars and bite boxes, to our exquisite handmade truffles, caramels & pralines, and a fantastic selection of single origin bars plus lots more, few people can resist, which we believe is by far the best option.


We offer a fab selection of long, short and speciality hot chocolates including some delicious vegan options. So whether you like dark, milk or white, nutty, spiced or something a little more adventurous, we're sure you'll enjoy the experience from start to finish.


Oh, and let's not forget about the homemade marshmallow and chocolate we serve on the side of your hot chocolate, it's the little extras that make a trip to Zara's Chocolates so memorable. 

We think the best seat in the house is situated at the back of the shop, with just a glass wall to separate the cafe from the chocolate kitchen! People thoroughly enjoy observing the chocolatiers at work, gazing in wonderment as bowls of melted chocolate are poured onto the marble worktops, and expertly tempered to perfection. 

Of course, it is not just our hand crafted chocolates you'll see us making, we also pride ourselves on our homemade ice cream & sorbets, marshmallow and florentines, the list goes on and it is a true pleasure to create all of these products in front of an admiring audience!

All seasons are covered at Zara's with our famous ice creams & sorbets taking centre stage in our display freezer throughout the spring and summer months, plus a few of our best sellers available throughout the year, perfect for the sea salted caramel fans out there!


During summer 2019, we introduced Sundae Saturday, chilled chocolate milks and our very own homemade ice cream cones to expand our offering, and finding new ways to keep providing the people of Bristol and beyond with wonderful sweet treats and fun experiences, the true heart and soul of the business.


We hope to see you in our lovely shop soon!
