Chocolate, the romantic and universally loved dessert, is never a bad idea. A "dessert date" is a great alternative to a first date at a bar if your date doesn't drink, or if you just want to get to know someone without alcohol getting involved.

It's also a fun post-restaurant idea when you don't want the night to end, even if you're both more full than Bruce from Matilda (you remember that scene, right?).

Whether you're getting to know someone or you've been dating your S.O for years, splitting a giant slice of cake never loses its charm.

Read on for a list of great chocolate-centered restaurants perfect for going on a date.
