Who loves chocolate? We’re guessing about 99% of humanity. So when we discovered that Cafe Fleuri at the The Langham, Boston offers an all you can eat chocolate bar on Saturdays, we were sold, especially since it’s been featured on the Travel Channel. And after experiencing this chocolate extravaganza, we believe the head chef is secretly Willy Wonka!
So Many Choices at the All You Can Eat Chocolate Bar!
This is the 27th year The Langham, Boston has run the all you can eat chocolate bar. This year’s theme is The Art of Chocolate, which combines two important themes of The Langham Hotel. Elaborate chocolate sculptures were a fitting addition to stations featuring so many delicious treats. We especially loved the made to order crepe station, chocolate fountain, cotton candy machine and choosing between hundreds of treats to pile on our plate. It’s seriously impressive, as it takes a dozen workers two days to put together each buffet.
Made to Order Chocolate Crepe Station
There’s a lot to love about an all you can eat chocolate buffet, but the made to order crepe station was a favorite worth highlighting. You can choose from either a milk chocolate or vanilla crepe, then choose to add more chocolate, fresh berries, nuts or toasted coconut to your crepe. Your final decision is whether to have your crepe flambéed. Tough choice, but how many times have you seen a crepe in flames? Go with it, it’s delicious.
Live Jazz Music
What adds to the ambiance of an all you can eat chocolate bar? Talented Jazz musicians certainly do the trick. Chocolate makes people happy, and jazz is relaxing, so the combination is perfect. We really enjoyed the band’s performance while enjoying so much wonderful chocolate.
In addition to chocolate galore, Cafe Fleuri also has an excellent savory menu. We decided to order a quintessentially New England sandwich, and it was one of the best lobster rolls we’ve eaten. Big pieces of succulent lobster were piled high on top of a delicious brioche bun. How did the lobster roll pair with chocolate mouse in a martini glass? Great, and it was another cool first for us at Langham, Boston.
Treats for People with Dietary Restrictions at the All You Can Eat Chocolate Bar
There were several chocolate treats for people with gluten and dairy allergies. As I’m lactose intolerant (Bell is fine), I really appreciated tasty options like the vegan chocolate mousse, chocolate chip banana muffins and dark chocolate truffles. I made sure to bring some Lactaid tablets and still put together this awesome plate to enjoy.

Salivating!! Literally I am as I read this post!
We salivate as well looking back on it, Lyon! 🙂
Oh my heavenly stars! You had me at chocolate buffet and twas death when I realized the words “all you can eat” came first. I sadly can’t get to Boston before the end of this season, but maybe next!
Thanks for the bit about allergies/allergens. I have celiac and I was salivating and almost sure I couldn’t partake until you mentioned that.
Hey Natalie! Pleasure, and yeah, glad they have celiacs well covered with some great options. Enjoy the chocolate buffet next year! 🙂
That looks wonderful. I’m the Chocoholic in the family but would have to drag my partner in as he doesn’t like it, not a bit. Good to see he could order the lobster roll option and that would make him very happy.
Hey Elaine. Yeah, Langham, Boston’s savory menu has non chocolate lovers well covered too. If your husband likes lobster rolls, we can definitely endorse the lobster roll at Cafe Fleuri. It’s great stuff by New England standards, which is high!
Wow! Sounds incredible! I might overdo it if I go there!
We definitely overdid it ourselves! Our dinner that night was pretty light!
WHAT?! I must go to there! All you can eat chocolate is a dream. This spread seems well worth the price too. I’ve always wanted to visit Boston for the history, culture and blah blah blah… but Chocolate? I’m on the next plane.
Hey Mags! As if there weren’t already enough reasons to visit one of America’s oldest and greatest cities?! It’s fitting that in the city where the American revolution started, there would be something revolutionary in the chocolate world too!
Oh, man! This looooks so delicious! My mouth is watering simply by looking at your photos! Boston wasn’t on our list, but now it sure is 🙂
