The drinking chocolate and ice cream were superb... and the selection of chocolates exquisite! We found a large number of items to take home with us... all of which turned out to be just as amazing as the items we tried in the store.

I tried all the different drinking chocolates and each one was uniquely delicious. The atmosphere is very cozy and it seems like a nice place to have some quite time and enjoy drinks!

Delicious drinking chocolate with rich full bodied flavors. Adorable little shop downtown, with beautiful decor and a wide variety of chocolates. The attendee was very knowledgeable and friendly. She helped me to find the perfect gift.

This was one of the best single-note taste experiences ever. I was literally moaning as I drank, and I literally LICKED the lid of the cup when I was done. The menu is confusing--like a snobby wine list, but the barista dude is nice. Do...More
