New chocolatier café coming to Stone promises indulgent Belgian chocolate treats 

2 mins read

A chocolatier café serving artisan Belgian chocolate truffles, waffles, hot chocolates and other treats is set to open in Stone next month. 

Chocolate lovers have been told to expect “a magical journey of indulgence” as popular market trader Michaela Jones of Mishka Truffles prepares to open her first café to the public. 

Based in the former Stone Baked Café, on High Street, Michaela says her place will be “like no other” in terms of the treats it will offer – and hopes it will become a place for all the community to enjoy. 

Michaela only started her business last year but already has plans for a second chocolatier café in Knutsford next year. 

She said: “I am the biggest lover of chocolate and have always wanted my own chocolatier café. 

“This will be a place like no other, different to anywhere else. 

“I want people to eat my chocolate, taste the love and want more.” 

Michaela followed her dream and launched her business from her home in Wychwood, near Crewe, last April, originally supplying to shops in the local area before deciding to sell to the public instead. 

Now she trades at various makers markets including ones in Trentham, Knutsford and Chester. 

The former sales account manager is also a qualified teacher and has worked all around the world but is looking forward to making Stone the home of her business. She hopes to open the café at the end of March, but an exact date has not yet been set.

Michaela Jones will soon open Mishka Truffles chocolatier café in Stone.

Waffles served in the café will be Liege style – a slightly sweeter than normal type of Belgian waffle – and there will also be a range of Belgian chocolate cheesecakes, brownies, blondies, cookies and speciality alcohol coffees. 

The café will offer over 20 hot chocolate flavour combinations – all made from actual chocolate – and customers will be able to choose from three different types of beans for their coffees to be made from. Every coffee or hot chocolate will come with a free treat of the day. 

There will be live music once a month and a weekly competition where people can submit their suggestions for truffle flavours. The winning one will be made and served in the café for a week and named after the person who came up with the idea. 

“I want everyone to feel part of Mishka’s,” said Michaela. “I love communities and people and want to do something really special for them.” 

She added: “I have been diagnosed as bipolar and I have ADHD. I am starting this shop with no financial savings and no help whatsoever, but when you walk into the shop, you will feel my energy and love for it. 

“I want people to know that even if you are struggling in life, it is still possible to follow your dream – you just have to have one.” 

The café, which will have seating for 30 people, will become the company’s new headquarters where all of its truffles will be made. 

Michaela currently offers over 25 varieties from white chocolate and Biscoff to dark chocolate with walnuts grown in her dad’s garden in the Czech Republic. 

Michaela is looking for two people to join the team once the chocolatier café opens.
