The food is always good. They try to buy local, so price may be a little higher than other places, but it is worth it. The food is always fresh. The workers are always friendly and helpful.

We stopped in just to look around and maybe buy some candy for the Grand kids. WOW! That's a lot of Chocolate! Really cool place. Some great vintage candies (Zotz, PopRocks,etc.). Very reasonable prices. The little deli/cafe looked really nice!

No beer or wine but chocolate and phosphates. A better place locally for beer and wine is the Ore Docks and Sol Azteca.

Donckers was established in 1896 by Fred Donckers, a one-armed family man that prided himself on great customer service and top-notch ingredients used to make his locally-famous chocolate fudge.

Over 120 years later, Donckers is continuing the tradition of great, quality food and service to locals and tourists alike. Take a trip to Donckers for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and stay for dessert at the old fashioned soda fountain, or try some house-made chocolates and caramels from the store. Some items of note are the Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels, Fred's Tin Roof Sundae, fresh local burgers, and award winning Donckers mac and cheese.
