Could not resist visiting the shop which lived up to what I've seen and read about it. Purchased a variety of Tuffel's, the Dark Chocolate Expesso was to die for compared to the commercially made 90% cocoa Chocolate I buy.

Devonport chocolates has amazing chocolate which tastes delicious. Unfortunately, it is a bit overpriced, and although I couldn’t get this good quality chocolate in most other places, I could definitely get it a lot cheaper.
