5 Of Our Favorite Chocolate Souffles In Dallas

souffle2by Steven Doyle

Dallas has so many wonderful hot spots that can supply your secret stash of chocolate for Valentine’s Day. We would certainly recommend Dude, Sweet Chocolate with three locations in the DFW area, CocoAndre in Oak Cliff, and Kate Wiser who will be making an appearance at Eatzi’s both February 13th and 14th for all your sweet shopping needs. Don’t forget Katy Priore’s bark Chocolate that she sells at Carbone’s and other Dallas locations such a Bolsa Mercado.

We do love our chocolate. We also also love it in souffle form, and we have found some of the best places to drop a few dollars on the light and airy dessert that makes a meal more special, especially this time of year when hearts go fluttering at the mere mention of the sweet dish.    

Rise No. 1

These folks dedicate most of their menu to souffle and make one fine and dandy chocolate version. They also offer savory souffles such as one all loaded up with crab.


Lavendou Bistro Provencal 

Lavendou is the city’s answer to French cuisine, and owner Pascal Cayet certainly takes great pride in serving them hot, tall and table side with a mall pitcher of warm chocolate to bath the dessert in. This is a must try for those seeking the finest version in Dallas.

Toulouse Cafe

Toulouse touts one of the largest menus for both mussels and desserts in town, and you can find fine examples of each at the tiny restaurant on Knox in Dallas. There are actually three souffles to choose from, but we always dive head first into the chocolate version. And why not?

You probably forget that we have this wonderful restaurant in Deep Ellum that serves amazing local fare, and terrific desserts. What better way to end a meal than by sampling what chef-owner  Tracy Miller creates what she calls Chocolate Deconstructed.Consider a mini chocolate souffle served along side an Ovaltine chocolate shake. Genius.

Old Warsaw

Think very, very old school dining with strolling violins, big platters of beef, and a souffle you must orderat the beginning of your dining experience. That is Old Warsaw in a nutshell. Haven’t been in some time? Try it for a perfectly romantic evening.

  1. Toulouse Cafe has more of the consistency of a flourless chocolate cake than a true souffle. Not to say that is bad, but I don’t quite see it under the same banner as Rise or Lavendou

    Just went to Ole Warsaw last week. Haven’t been in a few years…they NEVER disappoint. The soufflé was a warm delicate chocolate explosion…amazing as always!!!
