Nice little coffee and snack stop in Dillsboro. The caramel bars and salted caramels are among the best I have had. Nice coffee as well, and nice of the owner to take time out to chat with us.

My wife is a world-class chocoholic and we always stop at The Dillsboro Chocolate Factory to replenish her hoard of chocolate. We ignore competing chocolate shops from Asheville to Bryson City because the selection and quality at TDCF is superior. A visit here should be on every chocoholics bucket list.

We stopped after lunch at Kostas and sampled a few -- love the coffee bean chocolate bark and bought a nice sampling for our trip. Very reasonable prices and great service.

A Wide selection of both. Price was average. Looked like the were re-arranging furnishings some. I thought the place was under-staffed as a young man was working both the chocolate counter and then would move to the other side of the store to work the coffee counter. I was going to order an espresso, but the wait was too long.

dillsboro was a wonderful place to visit.I went on my birthday and had a grand time . If shopping in historical buildings is your thing then you will love this quaint little town. Primitive and unique you will love walking around.

We drove out of the way to get here. Called to get their hours to make sure they would be open. They close at 6. Even the sign states that out front. We arrived at 505. We walked in and the young lady looked at me and said uh were closed. I responded what about the sign. She said sorry... More

We are truly sorry for the way our crew handled this situation. In April we put out a memo via text to our crew about expanding our Friday and Saturday hours. The young woman working on the 12th was getting back to work with us as she is in college. She did not get our message about expanded hours. We... More
