Driven by the desire to indulge people with the most delicious tastes, incredible aromas, and the best-looking designs, we traveled all over the world to find the best products. Our hunt for an exciting formula knew no limits and took us from London to Zurich and from New York to Dubai. We handpicked heavenly tastes, smells and sensations with the utmost care.
With love and pride we’d like to welcome you to experience the result of our quest: Chiqueolatte! Give a taste to one of our many coffees that have been roasted exclusively for us or try out one of our fifteen types of tea, each with its own story. Enjoy the wide range of unique chocolate flavors that originate from over fifty countries. Brace yourself for the ultimate feeling of happiness when we get the chocolate fondue or chocolate fountain on stage. But most importantly, make sure to turn your visit into a memorable experience.
Over the past two years we’ve developed and improved the Chiqueolatte concept, giving our customers an experience in chocolate heaven. We currently have multiple franchise locations connected to our concept. In addition to our Dutch locations, we’re also located in the United States, the United Kingdom and Luxembourg.
