Great chocolate, great service! The smell when you walk in will entice you to buy. Its location right on the square makes it the perfect spot to grab a small sweet treat after a meal out in Dahlonega.

Strolling our peaceful town after dinner is a good way to finish a day. Topping that off with Paul Thomas Chocolates is absolutely sinful. A wise choice for sure. Thank you for your review and we hope you come back again and again.

Paul Thomas is a wonderful chocolatier - all the confections made on site are delicious, including the chocolate covered strawberries. Excellent customer service, and people are always full of information about the locale and environs. Great sugar-free versions as well.
