It was by accident that I walked into this chocolate shop with a friend. We meant to have a bite and a coffee at J.CO in Ayala Cebu, but they were close at the time when we got there. We were about to walk away to find some other place when I spotted the cute and winsome cafe sign with the word “Chocolatier” on it. Nothing like the thought of chocolate decadence to stop me in my tracks.
Since they surprisingly have quite a a lot of food choices (I wasn’t expecting that) we asked the waitress what their bestsellers were. She recommended the White Chocolate Crepe. I was eyeing something with dark chocolate in it, but I went ahead and ordered the crepe, pairing it with Mocha Latte. Running through their tea choices, I spotted Chocolate Chai Tea Latte which intrigued me. Chocolate with chai tea and milk? I ordered a cup of that, too.
The crepe was surprisingly not as sweet as I thought it would be. The apples and mangoes evened out the sugary taste of the white chocolate syrup. This was so, so good. Big thumbs up for this one.
My friend and I split the Chocolate Chai Tea Latte between us. I ordered it as an afterthought, but it won’t be the next time I come back to this place. This drink is sinfully delicious! I want more of this in my next visit (you bet I’ll be coming back here soon).
Maitre Chocolatier Boutique Cafe is located at the ground floor of Ayala Terraces in Cebu City, beside J.CO Donuts.
