Absolutely love this place! Came for the first time today and the woman there (not sure if she was an owner) was incredibly nice! The Taiyaki were delicious! Fluffy waffle dough and the fillings were not too sweet. Delicious drinks, she even gave all of us a free sample cup of ice cream which was smooth and creamy! We will definitely be coming back! 💖

Excellent hot chocolate and chai latte. They definitely take pride in their products. Ham and cheese taiyaki was absolutely delicious. Come and try it!

Delicious! Super nice staff, redid our fish (even though it was great in our opinion) just because of his dedication to quality. Highly recommend.

I've been here a couple times, and I've always had a great experience. The business is bright and welcoming, and I've always been greeted. There are several tables, and it's very clean. There are so many options, and the staff is patient and helpful with selecting something. The taiyaki are delicious and made hot and fresh right in front of you. I've had the custard and Nutella, and I can't pick a favorite. I don't know what the recommended serving size is, but I could definitely eat more than one. The rolled ice cream is so flavorful and creamy. I tried the Oreo cookie one. It's a huge portion.

I went to Salt N Cocoa for a Sunday sweet treat! I love that it is a family owned cafe. They freshly make Thai rolled ice cream and Japanese Taiyaki (Fish shaped waffle with filling) right in front of you! It was so interesting watching him make my Taiyaki and the rolled ice cream! (Kids would LOVE to see their ice cream get rolled!). I got the Happy Birthday rolled ice cream and a Taiyaki with custard filling. Both treats were delicious! They also have soft serve ice cream, Boba tea and coffee drinks.Go check out Salt N Cocoa‼ You won’t be disappointed with the sweet treats and drinks, friendly staff, and the great service!

Rolled ice cream treats are amazing. Had a soft serve sundae to mix it up and it is so creamy. Love this place

It was my first time trying tayaki. Salt n Cocoa made it special! The owner explained everything! She actually painted the walls and created a extraordinary painting that is hanging on one of them. The boba was above average. Overall, it was a really nice experience. I will be coming back!

Got the rolled ice cream and it was beautiful and delicious. They have a nice selection at a good price. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for ice cream, boba, or taiyaki

Good place to grab some ice cream, bubble tea, and taiyaki in Durham. I had the mango matcha latte with boba/tapioca pearls and a red bean taiyaki pancake. The taiyaki probably was a little doughy still but overall both were really good. The staff/owner was also super friendly. Indoor seating/tables available and plenty of parking.

Everything the other reviewers write is true! Great ice cream, great presentation, great service and very clean. Finally an ice cream that has real ingredients and isn't pure sugar like most other places'. Do try the fish shaped waffles, they're amazing, as well. I'll be coming back and recommending it to everyone!

Stopped in as a treat for the kids as a prize for doing so well at their appointments today, and this place did NOT disappoint! We were first timers and will definitely be back. Not pictured were rhe 2 bobas we ordered. But the match, cookies & cream, and strawberry rolled ice creams certainly hit the spot. The owners were a LOVELY couple as well.

Great spot for some delicious Taiyaki, rolled ice cream and boba tea. Glad I found this shop and was able to introduce these flavors to my fam and friends. Everyone who works there is amazing and The kids loved seeing the ice cream being made right in-front of them. I definitely recommend this place. My sis knows how picky I am with flavor’s especially since I’ve lived abroad for over a decade where I was able to experience these flavors time and time again, can definitely say these hit the spot.
