You may think it's expensive, but in truth, there's nothing but quality, pride and freshness in every piece of decadently produced chocolate. My faves include Thai chili, basil lime, spicy sesame and crème brulée.

This was the original & first location. This venue now holds just a counter for sales. Visit the new location on 39th Street where the kitchen and say hello with the proprieteur. The chocolate shells are exquisitely made to hold its prized chocolate filling... they are delicate to the mouth. Machines cannot make them this thin. Also, keep in mind... More

Kee’s Chocolates is our favorite chocolate shop in NYC. Kee’s is a small, minimal shop owned and operated by the affable Kee Ling Tong. Kee opened her flagship SoHo store in 2002 after a career change from the world of corporate finance. But she quickly established a flawless reputation for producing some of the freshest and finest quality handmade chocolates... More

Her preservative chocolate pieces have the best ganache combinations. Also, the chocolate shells are all handmade in small batches. With machine made molded chocolates, you cannot get shell pieces as thin and delicate as hers. Keep in mind her créme brulée chocolate pieces are best consumed in one bite. The quality has been getting better as the years go by.

If you're serious about your chocolate, and at these prices you'd need to be, then this is the best we've found in NYC. Great variety shows imagination and care taken by the maker. A must do.

Espresso chocolate bar was awesome. This is worth the trip just off 8th Ave. on 52nd street. If you are in the Times Square area and want a small workout for some great chocolate...take the trip. My wife loved the packaging for sending future gifts.

We picked up a few pieces and our favorite was the Champagne and passion fruit. The crème brulee was good, but not great. We had to wait at least 10 min for service because there was only one staff member working.

We went here for some macarons and they were so delicious, they were so full of flavour and they had quite a choice of flavour, although we didn't pick any up the chocolates looked so good too.

Kee's Chocolate at 80 Thompson Street, NYC is small and unassuming, but don't let that fool you. If you are a chocolaholic, you will be in a coma within moments. It's my only vice so I know what I'm talking about. The dark chocolate creme brulee and passion fruit are simply to die for... just amazing. Don't take a bite,... More
