First of all, the shop is located in a very nice house. You can admire the house and the chocolate. You can also take a short tour inside the kitchen where they prepare some chocolate.

This seems to be one of Antwerp's best chocolate places. At the end of the famous Meir street you'll find it on the right side. Depending on when you approach it, the chocolate fragrances will draw you there automatically from a block away. It was...More
