PrestatWith Roald Dahl and Her Majesty counted as just a couple of their biggest fans, this brightly-coloured, richly scented, teeny tiny chocolate shop tucked away in a corner of the Princes Arcade belies its significant status and reach. Prestat is one of the world's oldest and grandest chocolate companies. Founded in 1902 by French emigre, Monsieur Antoine Dufour (a former chocolatier to Napoleon III who stole the recipes from the French Court), Prestat's iconic gilt-embossed packaging continues to offer a striking visual reminder of its royal connections both past and present (Prestat are the official Purveyors of Fine Chocolates to the Queen). Famous favourites include vanilla ganache, marzipan, chocolate-dipped apricots and their world famous truffles.
