The most creative assortments made from this bean that I have ever tasted. Simply the best. They have grown over the past twenty years but have retained their personal touch.

Superb handmade chocolates - among the best I have ever tasted. Very pleasant staff willing to provide useful recommendations and then efficiently wrap your purchase. The long line of locals provided further proof of this chocolatier's popularity.
