Theres nothing more refreshing than going to a place that the owner is not only the person serving the product but is probably the nicest person I ever met! He ensure that we not only enjoyed and sampled his great chocolate but was genuinely invested in making us happy with visiting his shop. An elderly woman came into the store while he was talking to us and walked out, he ran after her and gave her a free sample! We need more sebastian brechts in the world
Personable, caring, and focused. This chocolate shop has a range of options, from PBR to exotic limes from the Philippines, encased in a perfect bite. Selecting truffles and discussing chocolate with staff was fun and informative. Different from other, highly branded chocolate shops; provides a chill, friendly atmosphere that makes you want to come back every week.
This is the best chocolate shop Ive ever been to!! Sebastian is so kind and funny its always a pleasure to visit. We moved to California and I STILL order from him. Amazing vegan selection as well. My favorite is the Italy bar and the brownie bar.
What a wonderful experience discovering the OCD Chocolate Shop! Sebastian is very welcoming, and we enjoyed how much knowledge he is willing to share to anyone interested in learning about chocolate. His own works are sublime with unique and flavorful renditions of the classics and news tastes I could not have imagined. HIGHLY recommended!
Sebastian was great! He helped me put together a variety pack of chocolates as a thank you gift for a customer. Everyone loved the chocolates, and Sebastian was supremely helpful in knowing exactly what I needed. Super knowledgeable about chocolates and overall a really nice guy. Elbow bumps > handshakes.
Delicious and creative chocolates, such as coffee truffle shaped like coffee mugs, thematic country bars with ingredients and designs from those countries, and all sorts of different chocolates of different shapes and flavors.Sebastian is clearly very passionate about chocolate and loves sharing his passion for experimenting with new styles and ingredients with his customers. Ill definitely be back!
Happened to drop by this gem on the way to a show nearby, met Sebastian and tasted the chocolate which was a sublime experience. He was so wonderful with providing recommendations and helping me select a few for myself to enjoy. Highly recommend ALL his chocolate, my personal favourites were the balsamic dark chocolate, cinnamon dark and the lime coconut. Do not walk past without tasting this man’s selection / talking to him!
This magical little chocolate shop on East 4th Street has the MOST delicious chocolates. Sebastian is a true artiste, who has a lot to say about the subtleties of chocolate and creates some amazing treats. He supplied my daughters Bridal Shower with 40 chocolate umbrellas. Completely adorable and tasty! Marissa, his assistant, was so helpful and sweet... she is a gem! Thanks so much!!!
Came in because I saw the sign, was provided with immeasurable kindness, friendliness and a sample of delicious chocolate. Have not experienced such a warm and friendly reception anywhere in New York.
Everything youd hope for in a chocolate shop. At least 30 different chocolates were in the display, some of them Sebastian claimed to have made fresh just an hour before. I came in and he helped me select a 20-piece box for Valentines Day, and he let me sample a few during the process. The cinnamon chocolate is a must try.
Adorable chocolate shop with some unusual products that you dont see every day as well as a generous selection of skillfully made classic bonbons. They make chocolate scorpions that are kind of cool looking. They make a beautiful bark with flowers that look like they are embossed on top.I got a caramelized popcorn bar. I bought a selection of their caramels as well. One of them was passionfruit and mango.Its also an art gallery.
Tried a chocolate cookie and a peanut butter praline. The pranile was divine! Next time Im in NY Ill gladly come back to buy more pralines 😍
Absolutely immaculate chocolates. Every time I come to NYC I’m going to make a trip here. You can tell he has a passion for what he does and that he constantly tinkers with his work to keep it at this level.
Thought I’d try a new chocolate place. Bad service. Quality of product does not match the price. Will stick with Mason du Chocolat.
Sinful and heavenly chocolate 🍫 in an East Village community atmosphere. ⭐️ Perfect for a treat for yourself, for dinner parties or gifts.Can highly recommend.
Honestly, I didn’t feel like it could be as good by the way it looks. I’m sorry to say that. But when I tried one! OMG, it’s the best chocolate I’ve ever tried in my 33 years life!
Phenomenal everything: chocolates, bars, caramels. I hate to write this review because I don’t want them to get too popular... but they deserve it.
The best, most exquisite chocolate inventions I have ever tasted in my life. Genius. Highly entertaining and unforgettable in the best way.
Very pricey chocolates but the quality is amazing! I absolutely love their 100% chocolate infused with honey.
Amazing chocolate and service! The owner is very nice. Will definitely be returning.
I think that I died and I was in chocolate paradise... that what I feel when I drank my hot chocolate. .. just Amazing
What a terrific chocolate shop! Sebastian Brecht is a NY treasure. Delicious place to find!
Some of the most exciting, innovative chocolate Ive ever had. Worth every penny.
Sebastian IS Berthold’s grandson and is a chocolate artist you might find in Paris, where he was born. Try the samples and I recommend the 9 piece sampler for the chocoholic you love.
Very innovative and great taste chocolate and bonbons. Highly recommend checking this place out
Traditional truffles with BUTTER in addition to cream (unlike shops like Vosges and Marie Belle that only use cream). OCD truffles are the best in NYC!
The Shark is better than the shark in jaws. Superb chocolate, great service and a fun vibe.
I love this place! Delicious chocolate and a fun place to visit.
Amazing chocolate but really bad service.
