Specializing in all things chocolate, Sweet Divas Chocolates is the best spot in St. Pete to successfully cure your sweet tooth cravings. Serving up Belgian chocolates, homemade ice cream, specialty cakes and more, Sweet Divas is an essential staple downtown. Located near all the hot spots in town, come in for a delicious treat and stroll down by the Bay or the hustling Beach Drive.
The first thing your tastebuds will gravitate towards is the chocolate display. They come in all different shapes and sizes with different fillings and flavors. Sweet Divas does an excellent job at standing out with their Florida-inspired chocolate shapes. They have everything from alligators to seashells! The best part? They taste good too! A few of my favorites are Chocolate Bling, Peanut Clusters and Seahorses.
They serve some of the best gourmet cupcakes in the burg, and each one is uniquely named after 'Divas'. I tried the Carmel Electra which is caramel filled Madagascar vanilla cake, buttercream frosting, and caramel and walnut toppings. It was a delicious treat if you're looking for a smooth and thick frosting with delightful caramel hints and a little crunch from the nuts. To fulfill my chocolate sweet tooth, I also got the Chaka-lat Khan to-go for a second dessert later that day! The Chaka-lat Khan is a double chocolate cake with Belgian chocolate frosting with almonds. If you're like me and need some chocolate after dinner, this was the perfect night cap!
This cupcake tasted as good as it looks and paired perfectly with a Hazelnut Cappuccino. Stop in on your way to work for a coffee, latte, cappuccino and more. I tried their Hazelnut Cappuccino and an Iced Coffee and although Sweet Divas isn't a coffee shop, I was very impressed!
Now for those hot days approaching in Florida, Sweet Divas has some of the creamiest and richest ice cream options. They have flavors like Apple Pie, White Almond, Pumpkin Spice and more. I asked for some recommendations and settled with their Butterscotch Caramel Sea Salt and Chocolate Chocolate with Belgian Chocolate Chips. The texture was creamy and smooth, and the taste was satisfying! Try the Butterscotch Caramel Sea Salt and you can thank me later!
This chocolate inspired cafe has more than you think. They also have giant cookies and brownies, cake pops, muffins, milkshakes, teas, wine and more! In addition to their goodies, you can also shop for some amazing gifts here. Some items include, chocolate covered champagne bottles, cocktail mixers, candles and lotions, brittle and so on.
Chocolate lover or not, Sweet Divas Chocolates has an impressive menu with delightful treats and drinks. The next time you're strolling along Beach Drive be sure to stop in for some delicious desserts!
More than just a chocolate shop, Sweet Divas Chocolates features the finest Belgian Chocolate.
