Love the Yummies and the gifts. Best kept secret on the Historic Woodstock Square. Family friendly and such beautiful things to look at Holiday decorations are amazing.

Having been here many times, I can honestly say I am always pleased going here! Yes, it may seem a little quirky to some- you order at the bar from a large menu of everything from coffee to food to deserts (with plenty of non-gmo, gluten free, and vegan options) and they try to bring it out to you. Sometimes... More

Very unusual place, serves great chocolate as well as beer and wine, and even pairs the two. There are savory options for food as well, although we didn't try those. You order food at a counter and it's supposed to be brought to your table, but the night we were there, we had to go hunt ours down.

I tried a box of 4 different kinds of truffles and while the flavors were interesting, I can't say I enjoyed them. For the price I would recommend trying one before buying more. The texture was odd to me because usually truffles melt in your mouth, but I found these to be chalky and the flavor of the chocolate was... More

We have been here several times and loved it each time. We have brought many of our friends here. They pair all sorts of drinks, from coffee to whiskey and different chocolates. Very unique flavors.

Delicious homemade, specialty chocolates with lots of unique flavors. Also, it stays open till midnight some nights -- because you never know when you'll need your chocolate! It's a little spendy (over $2 per truffle), but it is worth trying a few. Go with a friend and taste each other's!

We went for lunch. Ordered panini of the day. One thin slice of meat, thin slice of cheese on gluten free bread ( tasteless). It reminded me of a sandwich on tastee bread. Chips with it were either Bloody Mary flavor or garlic pickle flavor--both super salty and nasty. Iced coffee was OK but only sweetener was stevia which doesn't... More

I had not been in the this place since I was told it was dark chocolate not milk chocolate but had no idea they had food and drinks too. I had a hot chocolate that was very very good would stop in again.
