If you're in the area and want some chocolate, you gotta try this place. I went in and couldn't decide what to get, and the staff were great with helping me figure out which truffles I had to try.

Hard to beat the quality of their products. I love chocolate and they have a big variety and they're so good. I go there quite often. I have also had their bread, cakes and other treats. Never had anything there that wasn't great.

Without doubt the best chocolate store I've ever been in and that includes Lady Godiva in New York City. Thirty seven bucks a pound and worth every dollar. Just fabulous!

I went to Cumberland to get some chocolates from Dark Chocolates but unfortunately they were closed the day before Christmas. Hot Chocolates was not only open but was packed with lineups at all their cash registers.

We happened upon this place shopping downtown and ended up going there almost every day. Not only way their chocolate amazing, but you could also have tea there with a dessert. Their lemon meringue cake was wonderful too.
