This Mothers Day - Sunday 30th March - melt her heart at the Pittenweem Chocolate Company and our Cocoa Tree Cafe, a year-round coastal haven in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife.

Step into our independent, family-run village shop and discover a celebration of speciality chocolates, including single-origin varieties from hand-selected plantations around the world and our own chocolate range – handmade in Pittenweem. Our signature collection also includes an exclusive series of single-malt whisky and gin liqueurs. Developed by the Pittenweem Chocolate Company and crafted by our artisan chocolatiers in Belgium, the liqueurs are presented in attractive, wooden boxes - an imaginative gift for gin, whisky and chocolate connoisseurs!

Beyond the chocolate boutique, experience our cafe’s inviting ambience. Vintage charm and stylish chocolat’-inspired décor provide a relaxing backdrop for artisan coffee & good conversation, a continental-style lunch, afternoon tea and scones, signature chocolate cake or one of our luxury hot chocolates – handmade in Pittenweem. In spring sunshine, relax in our sheltered courtyard. On chillier days, enjoy the warming stove fire and cinnamon aromas.

Give her a thoughtful gift, memorable day out – or both – and create a perfect Mothers Day with the Pittenweem Chocolate Company. Open daily, 10am to 6pm. Shop online too and have a gift or vouchers delivered to her door.

In like a lamb, out like a lion?

Following a balmy end to February, we’re now experiencing the roar of ‘Storm Gareth’. So, come away in out of the cold and batten down the hatches in our Cocoa Tree Cafe, a cosy, fireside hideaway.

Our thick, mixed bean soups, toasted gourmet focaccia, artisan tea and coffee and our own luxurious hot chocolates - handmade in Pittenweem - will work their magic and warm the cockles!

Our chocolate shop and cafe in Pittenweem - a historic fishing village on the edge of a wild, beautiful north sea - is only a short, 30 minute bus ride from St Andrews. So, whether you’re studying, reading or relaxing with loved ones, we’re always ready to welcome students, travellers and of course, our lovely regulars. Inside our sanctuary, the weather will feel like a storm in a tea cup!

The Secret Behind That Smile?

‘She enjoyed her favourite treats: squares of dark chocolate. She ate it every day. A bite or sometimes more. She had a special drawer in the house where she would put her chocolate and it was forbidden to touch. She would get upset if someone finished it before her. Chocolate was her favourite pick-me-up.’

-  Luca Dotti, on his mother, Audrey Hepburn
