Confectioners with bakery added. Very good selection of baked goods & all forms of chocolate. Chocolate coated Australian stem ginger is to die for! A little pricey (but realistically what isn't these days?)

If you're in the area and want some chocolate, you gotta try this place. I went in and couldn't decide what to get, and the staff were great with helping me figure out which truffles I had to try.
