Rumsey's Chocolaterie Buckinghamshire Reviews
Chocolate Heaven Aug 07, 2013
For all you chocoholics out there this place is a must!!! We had been for a stroll through Wendover Woods when it was suggested that we stop off for coffee and cake somewhere - Costa or Rumsey's - Rumsey's won hands down.
The shop itself is a charming little place full of character due to the old fashioned wooden ceiling beams and tastefully decorated with a vintage theme about it. However, by far the best bit is the fact that you can see chocolate products being made before your very eyes due to the sheer glass window that separates the shop from the workstations.
Service is very efficient and the menu is simply mouth-watering. Kath and I opted for 'The' Chocolate cake served with a side helping of your choice of ice-cream (we opted for honeycomb) - simply heaven, Jude opted for Lemon Polenta cake, we also ordered two sloe lemonades and one cloudy lemonade. Cakes were priced at £4.95 and our drinks were £2.95 - so not much difference compared to your normal High Street chain of coffee shops.
We were so impressed by the service and choice we headed back to Rumseys on the Friday before heading back north. Our intention was to have lunch first - hahaha who are we trying to kid - we ended up indulging in their luxurious hot chocolate and after perusing the menu - to hell with the diet, Chocolate Fondue for three please, talk about chocolate overload, the serving dish came with strawberries, banana, blueberries, pineapple, marshmallows, biscuits and chocolate lattice strips, and a bubbling bowl of melted chocolate - boy it was so good =)
Ingredients are sourced locally from Lacey's Dairy, Parminters Butchers of Haddenham and Thames Cottage Bakery. Sandwiches are made fresh to order.
Breakfast is served from 8.30am - 11.30am
I also could not resist purchasing a number of item of the yummy stuff to take back for the folks at home, and the best thing - you can even order their chocolate on line - yaaaaay
