Bite-sized Chocolates Topped with Cute Illustrations
Based out of Brooklyn, New York, MarieBelle is a gourmet chocolatier. However, while they might be a chocolatier, at their Kyoto location, they offer a café with a morning (10 a.m. to 12 p.m.) and lunch (12 p.m. on) menu where you can sit down for a bite to eat.
Sitting inside a traditional Kyoto machiya townhouse, MarieBelle Kyoto is decorated with antique western furniture and chandeliers that give its interior a gorgeous, high-class atmosphere.
At the store’s café, you can enjoy bits to eat and chocolate-based desserts.
However, what the store is likely most well-known for are their “SIGNATURE ART GANACHE,” which edible works of art – beautiful as they are delicious.
MarieBelle’s range of other items that utilize only the finest cacao are must-tries as well.
