It's definitely expensive, but well worth it. The chocolate, toffee, and other items in the shop are wonderful. We got hot chocolates in the cafe and they were fabulous. It's a must-stop if you are in the area.More

They have a small collection, but it all seems delicious. We were offered samples as we entered and were treated well, reminded that they don't use preservatives! Nice! The macadamia toffee is especially good.

There is a chocolate shop as well as a cafe. The variety of chocolates is quite limited. The ambience of the cafe is lovely and the food is quite good.
