Monk Bar Chocolatiers
Delicious handmade chocolate from a boutique on the city's finest street
York's longest established chocolatiers is run by husband and wife Alan and Karen who hand make small batches of their indulgent chocolates in the back of the shop on the Shambles. Alan has perfected his craft over the years through gaining qualifications and experience in working with the luxury couverture chocolate from Belgium. Together, Alan and Karen make the snowmen for Christmas, the eggs at Easter and the owls, musical instruments and hedgehogs all year round, as well as the 70 filled chocolate flavours stocked in the counter.
If you find you're struggling to pick, why not try the cerisette, pave cluster and caramel and hazelnut. All the chocolate is sourced from Belgium and France and keep an eye out for their exceptional single origin chocolates.
“Chocolate is indulgent, it's a treat, a pick-me-up for a special occasion or a handy snack... it ticks all the boxes.”
