I haven’t yet had a chance to visit Eclipse Chocolate since it moved into its new location last year and became a bar and bistro. After lunch at Buona Forchetta, CC and I had dessert at Eclipse. I really love the new the expanded space.
There’s still the artisan chocolate bars with unique flavor combinations you can purchase. At the counter there are some cookies and other desserts on display. There is also a full dining menu.
There are a couple of windows giving you a peek at what is happening in the kitchen.
Double Dark Cocoa Drinking Chocolate
I started out with some of their luxurious drinking chocolate, which came with some airy house-made marshmallows. The drinking chocolate is extremely thick and rich.
I love the way the marshmallows dissolved into the chocolate. I will have to take Mr. K here sometime for the hot chocolate.
Sea Salt Caramel Mocha
You can also get a shot of espresso in the drinking chocolates and I believe CC chose the Sea Salt Caramel Mocha.
The brunch dessert selection was a little limited so we chose to get some cookies from the display case.
Peanut Butter Macaroon
This meringue-like cookie looked quite nice but was a little too brittle for my personal preference.
Chili Burnt Caramel Cookie
This oversized cookie just called out to me with its large melted chocolate chunks. With its thin and flat shape, I expected it to be chewy, but it was surprisingly cakey. There was a little residual heat from the chili.
I didn’t really love either cookie, but I really enjoyed the drinking chocolate and marshmallow. I’ll have to come back again some other time to explore the brunch menu.
