Jon Payson and Naomi Josepher moved to NYC in the early Nineties. Together, they enjoyed seeking out phenomenal desserts all around the city. When they moved to Park Slope, Brooklyn in 2003, they noticed a need for a dessert cafe on quickly changing Fifth Avenue. After reading an inspirational book on chocolate, they decided to create a cafe specializing in high-end chocolate, extraordinary desserts, handmade ice creams, dessert wines and beers from all over the world, as well as superb coffee. They spent eighteen months developing the concept, writing a business plan, transforming the space, and creating recipes, culminating with a grand opening in January 2005. Three years later, they opened their second café, The Chocolate Room Cobble Hill. And in October 2014, they opened their new expanded café at 51 Fifth Avenue in Park Slope. With the continued help of an incredible staff and a welcoming, supportive community, The Chocolate Room has become a unique destination for the best chocolate desserts in New York City.

    We’ve always loved desserts. The excitement of going somewhere after dinner, after a movie, or relaxing with friends over an exceptional dessert was the beginning of the creation of The Chocolate Room concept. We created a place we would like to come to ourselves; a refuge from the increasingly chaotic world we live in. It is a place where people can relax and feel comfortable; a place where guests can enjoy incredibly delicious chocolate, award-winning desserts, ice cream, coffee, wine, and good company. We have a passion for people. We enjoy seeing people happy.


    Working together respectfully is the essence of our philosophy: that means each and every person is valued for their contribution to meeting the highest standards for the success of The Chocolate Room experience. Ensuring standards for every component of the operation are met by each individual and creating a continuously welcoming atmosphere are absolutely essential as we work together to fulfill the mission daily. Our job is to take care of each other and our guests. Every individual in the shop should feel welcomed, respected, and taken care of—always.
