I love this place. Not only do they have the very best chocolates but they are actually not over priced. And staff are very patient - because it is very hard to choose as they are all amazing. Great for gifts too!

We're used to gulping down our chocolate in large quantities and short time frames. This place encourages you to savor a little at a time and slow down and enjoy it. Plenty of variety and a very friendly staff, bordering on being TOO helpful, if...More
