80 North: Berkeley, Chocolatier Blue Parlor

Chocolatier Blue Parlor  1809 Fourth St./Hearst St., (510) 665-9500.  M-Thur 11-7, F-Sun 11-8.  Take a shopping break here and enjoy a hand-crafted ice cream or sorbet—perhaps a classic dark chocolate or trendy salted caramel or unusual light and fruity basil-pineapple.  You’ll never get bored because flavors change monthly.  Toppings include butterscotch, white chocolate fudge, and crushed nuts.  And then there are the chocolates—rows and rows of sweet little treats that might include a heart-shaped, orange-covered dark chocolate, or a geometric red-colored dark chocolate with delicate chili flavor, or a classic milk chocolate with hazelnut.  Enjoy several things at once in a cookie sundae consisting of a chocolate-chip cookie mushed into a container and topped with your choice of ice cream (two flavors is ok, so I chose pistachio and salted-caramel) and topping (again two is ok, so I chose caramel and chocolate).  Yum, yum!  An assortment of hot chocolates and coffees is also available.  Though no seating is provided inside, a patio in front has some seating.
