If you are a chocolate lover, then this is the place for you especially if you are into dark chocolate. If you are a diabetic and you love chocolate, well...this is still the place for you, just bring your insulin.

Went to Ghirardelli with the family on vacation. Bought some chocolate to go and we all had a sundae. Line was long but moved quickly. Sundaes were out of this world delicious!!! Definitely need to try them if in the area.

We visited here on Thanksgiving Day, but many of the stores were open. Naturally, there is a shop where you can buy Ghirardelli chocolates; there are other shops where you can buy various souvenirs.
