What is a Mocha Café?

What is a Mocha Café?

By bringing together expert chocolatiers, coffee makers, and artisan bakers, the Mocha Café can deliver a unique café experience. As the name implies, the Dilettante Mocha Café specializes in quality chocolates and coffee, but customers can expect much more from their visit.

Since its first opening in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Neighborhood in 1976, Dilettante has become more than an ordinary café. A Mocha Café is a place where visitors can stop by to enjoy gourmet-quality coffee, confections, and freshly prepared meals. Made using natural and fresh ingredients, the Dilettante Mocha Café sets itself apart from an ordinary café.

At the heart of each Mocha Café is quality foods and drinks made with time and attention. Baristas make each latte, mocha, and coffee by grinding fresh, house-roasted coffee and the best equipment to create rich and fulfilling tastes. The Pacific Northwest is known for its coffee, and Dilettante’s coffeemakers have proven they can satisfy even discerning coffee drinkers.

A unique feature of the Dilettante Mocha Café is its chocolate scale. This easy-to-use visual guide allows customers to choose their preferred chocolate flavor to include in a mocha or hot chocolate drink. For example, white chocolate lovers can enjoy a sweet chocolate taste made with 31% cacao solids, while a person with a darker pallet can choose chocolate made with 72% cacao solids instead.

Alongside quality coffee, Dilettante’s talented chocolatiers craft each chocolate truffle, toffee, and caramel in the café by hand. Using traditional dipping methods, these chocolates feature non-GMO, couverture-grade chocolate, and all-natural ingredients. Enjoy a single truffle after a meal, or choose between Dilettante’s sixteen chocolate flavors to create a customized gift box to give for any occasion.

Alternatively, visitors may prefer to treat themselves to a vibrant assortment of pastries. Inside each Mocha Café is a display case filled with cupcakes, lemon bars, macaroons, cakes, and brownies. Each pastry is made fresh by Dilettante’s bakery team and frequently rotates, giving something for every café goer to look forward to.

Guests at Dilettante’s Bellevue Mocha Cafés can also treat themselves to an extensive menu of breakfast and lunch items. Each plate is made with care, using freshly sliced meats and flavorful ingredients to create nutritious sandwiches, soups, salads, and breakfast items.
