Lovely service and afternoon tea was divine. We couldn't quite finish it so ended up with a doggy bag.

Winning several awards within just a year of opening, including the Guild of Fine Foods Taste of Gold Award 2013 and 2014, Cocoa Cabana Chocolatiers in Didsbury serves a rich selection of handmade chocolates and sweet treats in its quaint tea room setting. Exquisite salted caramels and more can be bought for later from the on-site shop, while the café offers indulgent snacks and chocolate afternoon teas.

Run by Sarah Gallacher, who trained at the renowned Slattery’s Pattisier and Chocolatier, Cocoa Cabana in Manchester mixes traditional and experimental flavours in its truffles, chocolate shards and slabs, which come encrusted with berries, nuts and fudge pieces. The legendary gooey brownies are a favourite amongst returning customers, while divine chocolate cakes are handmade to order, and can be sampled by the slice.

These sugary delights can all be enjoyed in the Cocoa Cabana tea room, which comes with bright, floral china and is charmingly furnished with wildlife-patterned wallpaper. Guests can treat themselves to brownies, macaroons and speciality chocolate bars, each of which is complemented by the selection of fine coffees on offer.

    Me and my boyfriend came here for afternoon tea on my birthday!
    Absolutely lovely staff and the food was glorious!
    10/10 very well done!

    Cocoa Cabana was the perfect birthday treat for my wife who is pregnant so can't hit the booze and can't stomach many foods at the moment (with the exception of chocolate conveniently)! The setting itself is great, there are literally 2 tables inside the shop and 2 or 3 outside, but this is Manchester so when do we really get the weather to dine al fresco? The service was great, the food even better! Great value for money, well worth a visit!

    Lovely afternoon tea. The cakes were scrumptious and the salted caramel is to die for. Lovely little shop, and the host even tho she was very busy was lovely and helpful

    Although only small, couple of tables, everything was lovely. We had afternoon tea and from the bread for the sandwiches to the delicious cakes it was all fresh and tasty. Unlimited tea & coffee served by the most pleasant young lady

    Had the Chocolate Afternoon tea, which was lovely. Shop is small but on a sunny day there is eating available outside, best to book to ensure a seat!
