The Chocolate Bar

1835 W. Alabama Houston, TX 77098 | Lower Shepherd-Kirby | 713-520-8599

Location Description:

Just looking at this Montrose-area place might give you cavities. The chocolate bar deals in all things cocoa, and does so with a sense of humor. Several varieties of chocolate in novelty shapes are available, as well as kitschy gift items, including doggie chocolates. The Texas Frito Brittle, a mix with chocolate, Fritos, pretzels and pecans - has been featured on the Food Network. The cake (expensive, but with slices big enough to share) and ice cream are particularly decadent. The Village location is a little bit more spacious than the intimate Chocolate Bar outpost on W. Alabama.
