This beautiful pâtisserie-chocolatier and café showcases an array of delectable specialities, including truffles sharpened with Japanese vinegar, shiny-glazed mousses, tea-infused sponges, ices and artisan chocolates. At the weekends there is a bespoke dessert bar where you might sink a spoon into lavender panna cotta or classic savarin. The pâtisserie and chocolates are hard to fault for their creativity.
simply delicious. hot chocolate is gorgeous, the brownies are possibly the only ones i've ever eaten that i will actually admit are better than my own, and pretty much everything else is equally scrumptious.
I love Wiliam Curley chocolates and their dessert tasting menu at £14 is lovely! Definitely head there and try the salted caramel anything!!

What would you not expect to happen in a chocolate shop? Exactly, that it runs out of chocolate.
On a recent visit to William Curley's cafe and shop on Ebury Shop, however, I was told just that. Upon ordering the house blend hot chocolate, the waitress uttered those very words "I'm sorry, no more hot chocolate for today. We've run out of chocolate. I know it's embarassing." That's one way of putting it but nevermind. What I actually wanted to write is this:
Anyone interested in chocolate should stop by this place that was set up by UK master chocolatier William Curley a couple of years ago. Even if you don't eat them, the patisserie and chocolates are simply gorgeous to look at. There's also a wide variety of other chocolate-themed products - including jams and spreads - and don't be surprised if some of the products have an Asian touch. William Curley's wife is Japanese and a patissier herself.
The hot chocolate (if available) comes in a choice of different blends, there's also a brunch and all day pancake menu.
The style is rather continental and unusual for London. When I came here for the first time, my immediate reaction was "This could be in Germany" (says the German so this is, of course, very positive). A clean and contemporary style but not cold. A good place to stop for a warm drink, meet with a friend after shopping or simply read your paper.
The cafe is in a lovely corner of Chelsea, where Ebury Street meets Pimlico Road and if you come on a Saturday morning, you can watch the hustle and bustle on the farmer's market on the square opposite. Walking along further on Ebury Road, there's a plethora of galleries, antique and furniture stores, all very nice for a gentle stroll.
One thing they'd need to work on from my point of view (apart from never running out of chocolate) is the service. The girls serving are very nice and polite but clearly not professionally trained. So, little things are missing, such as bringing a spoon with your coffee or hot chocolate (yes, it's needed). But leaving that aside, a place I'd thoroughly recommend to every chocoholic.
Thank heavens he's back and not a moment too soon because here comes Christmas and we needed more high quality chocolate!
“Everything I do I like and believe in” so said William Curley when I chatted to him about his chocolates. The new William Curley shop at 198 Ebury St in London (SW1W 8UN) shop opened in a flourish of cream, white and shades of chocolate wood in the Chelsea area and is a spectacularly wonderful shop. With a delectable array of freshly made chocolates, pastries and of course cookies (biscuits for you Brits), no one can enter and leave empty handed. Well, perhaps empty handed but full tummy-ed as they serve desserts in the shop.
The shop is an experience in and of itself. A wonderful visual feast, it is a bit of a walk from Sloane Square station but everything in life is worth a bit of extra effort. The chocolates though – the chocolates were an absolute treat.
This shop has to be visited, smelled and experiencced. You won't leave empty-handed and it is so lush you'll return again and again.
