The perfect memory of your visit

The visitors can buy an apron with our logo embroidered on it during the visit. It will be a great memory of their visit ! Complete with adjustable neck strap and a robust embroidered design that will not crack or peel, it is very high quality apron. We have two models, one for adults (10€) and another for kids (8€).

Plastic is harmful because it is ‘non-biodegradable’. For this reason, we do not provide anymore some aprons in plastic since 2018 to respect our environment.

Good to know...

All visits are organized at our own location in the heart of Brussels. (Tram Faider)
The buses can park easily in front of our store.

We can welcome up to 90 visitors at the same time in our workshop.

Keep in mind that chocolate melts at high temperatures. Therefore it is quite cold in the workshop because of the air conditioning.

At Chocolissimo & Zaabär we use Callebaut Chocolate for all our workshops.
