Do not need a bakery when you have William dean serving up the best desserts! Chocolates outrageous, feel like you visited Paris to pick some up. Great service, heard great gelato, but haven't tried it as yet.

Yum! What else can you say about a delicious spread of tea sandwiches, scones, and gorgeous chocolates. I've never seen a longer list of teas.

They look to good to eat...... My wife always buys me a sampler pack of the dark chocolates for special occasions and I always have a hard time taking the first bite because they look so good. The taste follows their looks very well and I am never disappointed. Stop in and smell the great chocolate aroma for yourself.
