OK, this may be heresy, but the chocolate here is better than that at the Mendocino Chocolate Company. Made fresh on the premises, the selection may be smaller, but the quality can’t be beat. We’ve had the sea salt caramel, the chocolate malt bar, and...More

Have been here several times and the sweets have always been tasty, fresh, and the perfect sweet fix. Favorites are sea salt chocolate caramel (dark and milk chocolate), mint chocolate bars, anything with peanut butter, and maybe the best of all - plain fudge (no...More

Papa Bear's has some really excellent chocolate choices as well as other yummy treats. We love homemade chocolate and you will find that at Papa Bears.

Wonderful chocolate and caramel apple. Staff wasn't outright rude but definitely not engaged with their customers. That's why the lower rating. Seems that they're the exception as we had friendly service everywhere else.

A small building that had a good choice of chocolates and fudge. The person that helped was friendly. The place was clean and inviting.

The owners wife is so rude to customers. He really should keep her out of the customer service side. She is mean. Hates people, especially tourists, but without them she would be poor. She needs to learn some courtesy.
