Frequently come to this place and purchase individual desserts for dinner celebrations. The desserts are carefully prepared with fresh ingredients that look like a work of art. Each dessert is packaged with delicate care. Never had a bad purchase. Every bite is so tasty.

Our family visited for a special treat. We were nicely rewarded with some excellent gelato. The flavors were rich and the gelato very smooth. Just super!

William Dean offered an amazing evening with food, sweets and making our own chocolate bar. Pictures will show the beautiful presentation. Everything was exceptional in taste. To bad we did not get the recipes from the wonderful dishes.

If you like high quality chocolate, and/ or gelato, this is the premier place in the Tampa area. Gorgeous presentation, and all made in-house, in small batches. Winner!
