London based Chocolaterie founded in 1902

Antoine Dufour, creator of the chocolate truffle, founded Prestat in 1902 and opened his first shop in central London on South Molton Street. This became a point of reference for the writer Roald Dahl, author of “Charlie & The Chocolate Factory”, who paid homage to the Prestat truffle by making it the centrepiece of his novel “My Uncle Oswald”. Prestat has been supplying royalty and nobility for many years and in 1975 had the honour of being awarded its first Royal Warrant as a Purveyors of Chocolates to Her Majesty The Queen. “The Economist Magazine” included Prestat’s Piccadilly shop as amongst the best in the world.
