Fresh chocolate is like nothing else…it is truly sublime. All our recipes are designed in-house by the Melt chocolatiers. So come and see our kitchen in our store which is a hub of creative activity. The Melt team make truffles on a daily basis to ensure you have delicious, fresh chocolates. Chocolates should be as fresh as your daily bread.
Our store appeals to all the six senses: sight, touch, smell and of course taste. Watching chocolate being made is fascinating and the smell is intoxicating. We believe melt’s chocolates are good for your soul.
Chocolate is the only food that melts at body temperature, hence our name. You can only appreciate chocolate if you let it melt slowly in your mouth – so we encourage you to taste the best chocolate and let it linger in your mouth in a seductive way. Melt creates truly sublime chocolates using the best ingredients in the world. We source our ingredients from the best producers globally. At Melt, we work closely with chocolate producers. We will only use chocolate that is sourced from companies with strong credentials for supporting the local community and the environment.
Melt Chocolates is an independent, British family owned Company. Melt Chocolates is headquartered, retails and has all its kitchens located in Notting Hill. All our chocolates are handmade luxury chocolates from the heart of Notting Hill. Melt Chocolates is London’s Most Luxurious Chocolate Company.
The sleek minimal lines of our shops are designed by some of the best architects in London to be highly accessible and welcoming to all.
Melt was the first to have our kitchens actually in the shop so you can enjoy the aroma of chocolates being made when you visit our stores.
Our chocolates are very different, they are fresh! They taste sublime!
Enjoy the ambience in the shop – hear popcorn popping or chocolate caramels bubbling away, or listen to the chocolatiers discussing their next creation. They are happy to discuss ideas and flavour combinations directly with you.
Melt was the first to allow you to choose your own chocolates by using the wooden trays provided – take your time, and choose you exactly what you want!
We have a working kitchen in each of our stores – they represent the heart and soul of the brand. From the very beginning we believed that the art of making fresh chocolates and bars was a fascinating process and deserved to be seen and enjoyed by our customers. Our integrity lies in our kitchen – open for all to see, our chocolatiers are there to chat to.
Melts’ flagship store opened in 2006 in the heart of Notting Hill. The beautiful store, designed by Michaelis Boyd has an open plan kitchen where you can see Melt’s incredible, delicious, award-winning chocolates being made on a daily basis. The store gained loyal followers from the day it opened and rapidly gained attention further afield – our customers in Notting Hill are frequently from Japan, America and all parts of Europe.
A chic concession designed by Found Associates was established in Selfridges, Oxford Street a couple of years on.
Melts’ second store opened in December 2014, designed by Xuna Designs in Holland Park. It too has a fully working kitchen, where you can see Melt’s chocolatiers at work – making a dizzying array of chocolates and bars – right in front of you. You can be mesmerised by them working and intoxicated by the smell, while you enjoy a delicious coffee or hot chocolate.
The boutique also has a lifestyle element of designer pieces. These carefully curated pieces of mid-century furniture and lighting can not only be enjoyed while you sit and have a coffee, but will also be available to purchase.
The chocolates will be constantly changing with the seasons and the interior will also be gently evolving and changing, as a visually stimulating space for the eye as well as the palette.
Melt was founded by Londoner, Louise Nason in 2006.
