Fodor's Review

When it comes to the island's coffee and chocolate experiences, this place takes the cake. Within the attractive complex comprised of fieldstone and wooden colonial houses (circa 1760), there's a display case for the truffles, chocolate candies, and confections. They are created from 100% local products, including cacao and tropical fruits. The French chocolatier produces excellent chocolate. The sophisticated courtyard café has a contemporary menu. The beef, like the

coffee, is grown on the plantation. If you can get a group together, call and they will give you a price for a participatory demonstration as to how to make candy bars followed by a Franco-Caribbean buffet with tastings of island rum. There are no more guided tours, so visitors can just tour on their own. Again, if a group of 10 or more, they they can reserve a guided tour. The café does not serve dinner, however if there is a group reservation they will open for it. What anyone fit can do is the zip-line in the new adventure park.

Non-Existent

We tried to visit in April 2014 and after several locals helped us find the location, La Bonifierie/Ti Café is clearly no longer in business. There is an old sign near the entrance with the name on it, but inside there is nothing but a playground for children and no more.
