THE ART OF CHOCOLATE

Bitter & Zart - exceptional attention to detail and the world's best manufacturers.

THE ART OF CHOCOLATE

Freshly relocated to an enviable position overlooking Frankfurt’s cathedral, Bitter & Zart is no ordinary chocolatier. Their exquisite handcrafted treats are unrivalled across the city, and the space itself feels like a gallery, such is the owners’ clear devotion to artistic endeavour. Alongside cocoa-based delights, the salon serves cakes and confectionary of all shapes and sizes, from fruit tarts to indulgent cheesecake; Key lime pie to fresh macarons. The uniting factor is quality: all the products bespeak an exceptional attention to detail, made in-house or by the best manufacturers from around the world.

In addition to over 150 different types of chocolate bar, lucky visitors can try specialities of the house such as the locally inspired “Frankfurter Pflastersteine” (Frankfurt cobblestones), aswell as the requisite salty caramel, spiced chocolate, oriental coffee and even a beetroot soup. Bitter & Zart’s walls are adorned with collages created by Zimbabwean illustrator Oriana Fenwick and costume designer Renata Kos, both of whom are currently based in Frankfurt.

Against a pale green background, 1930s and ‘40s inspired drawings create a unique environment that fits with the style of the produce and its presentation. Fenwick also designed a special edition chocolate bar wrapper and the shop’s paper bag. Swing and other period music drifts softly from the speakers during the day, and then, every fortnight during summer, Blue Hour event turns things up a notch with drinks, dancing and a DJ.
