I try hot chocolate at Balzac, and always like the chocolate taste as it is not too bitter. but the sweet taste that comes after makes me could not finish the cup. next time I will ask for the less sweet taste.
the atmosphere at Balzac is relaxing, open and soothing. people seems friendly because of that.
Balzac's serves great coffee in all of its locations. This one has a front patio (beware the smokers), seating inside, and a back patio.. so lots of options for sun, shade, quiet, larger groups, and so on. Staff were friendly. They have lactose free milk.
The coffee was good and being balzac strong.I had a cookie and a Biscotti and I did not like either of them.
