Heard that there may be a closing of Stams. We hope that is just a rumor as it has become the first place we visit on every trip to Dubuque.

This is a 4th generation chocolate shop...the bags say "Amsterdam, Des Moines" which is unusual. They now have a shop in Dubuque. Most of the chocolates are cream filled but delicious. They also have gelatos in unusual flavors which are delicious.

We'd heard the gelato from Stam was amazing, and it didn't disappoint. Try the free samples before you choose as there are many delicious types. For the little ones: fruity banana (BLUE with sprinkles!). We loved the salted carmel, the chocolate covered cherry, the caramel pecan, and the minty oreo. Stam has roots from Amsterdam and Des Moines (I think)...and... More

Unfortunately, my diet does not allow for more frequent visits, so every time is a very special treat. There are many yummy flavors (which rotate). Although their wine selection is small, it is select. Chocolate? I've never tried it. Can't ever get past the gelato!

I had a dark caramel mocha- very good. Kids all had gelato and they are very generous when filling the cups. Medium is almost too big but most of our kids ate it all.

My wife was in heaven. She sampled several then bought more than several. The scents in the shop were Devine and the variety was more than enough to please the most difficult of palettes. Gelato and coffees are available, too. Then they also took time to give directions. Twice!

Fantastic chocolate, decadent desserts/treats as well as decadent setting! The coffee was fresh and excellent! They have almond milk for those who prefer this over dairy milk. The server was attentive and helpful.

So good! I love the chocolates! I will be back as soon as possible! I really wanted to try everything in the place but decided on a few small chocolates. I wish I had bought it all! I highly recommend coming here to quench your sweet tooth!

All I can say is that this place is amazingly good. If you need chocolate. Get it here. All handmade and all taste great.
