Good soups and chili in the chilly winter months; a whole wall of retro soft drinks in nifty glass bottles; and an outdoor patio for when the weather is nice. I appreciate their evening hours as well for a late dinner when traveling.

The Chocolate Cafe offers something for everyone. Places to sit and relax and nibble on so many different kinds of chocloate and candy. It's relaxing yet you just want to wander around and get your pic taken with the giant ape!
