Passion Chocolat, the high-end purveyor of creamy, sweet temptations, is closing its doors on Italská. After some initial confusion, two sources now tell me their last day will be Saturday, October 28th, 2008.
I've been a regular since it opened a little more than a year ago. I often stopped by on my way to work. It will be missed.
I did my best to support them, investing heavily in brownie cookies, Sacher-style cakes, and other eye-catching confections.
Unfortunately, their profits did not increase along with my waste line.
I heard the rent for their stylish space was just too much to bear. A source told me they are moving to Pasáž U Nováků, off Vodičkova near Wenceslas Square.
I hope they find success there. The proprietors, Nadine and Jean-François are even sweeter than their pastries.
I wish them luck.
