We read all the reviews and decided we had to go! When we walked in, we were greeted by someone who offered samples! She asked if we had allergies and upon learning my daughter had a nut allergy brought her a specific treat! Instead of left out, she felt special! Thank you!

As every reviewer will tell you, Monica has gourmet quality chocolates. So I am not gonna tell you about that. You might be surprised to know that Monica also sells jewelry and clothing from her native Peru. Of particular interest to me were beautiful alpaca sweaters, well made and, for alpaca, very reasonably priced.

My husband had a hankering for chocolate after dinner. We had just driven out to see the West Quoddy Lighthouse, so he decided to see if Monica's was still open. Even though it was after 8:00 pm, their doors were still unlocked and they welcomed us warmly. Monica herself proffered the samples. One taste was enough to convince us that... More

Absolutely amazing --the dark chocolate is smooth and rich but not overly sweet. Monica met us at the door and ordered some free samples for us. Young lady who waited on us was very helpful. A super place to visit and thrilled to find out you can order online!

Monica's Chocolates is a lovely shop that offers delicious chocolate treats and a beautiful selection of jewelry and other boutique type items, as well. Monica greeted us when we walked in and brought two different types of truffles for us to sample. Delicious! My daughter is allergic to tree nuts and Monica took the time to talk to her about...

Monica's Chocolates are simply some of the best we've had. If you like See's Chocolates on the West Coast, for example, you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality and taste of Monica's. The shop is located on Route 189 so stop by on your way to Lubec or if you are traveling coastal Route 1. The chocolate-covered marshmallows are... More

Monica's is a boutique store that specializes in chocolate. The chocolate confections smell and taste delicious and are in line price wise with other confectioneries of this type. At the store they also sell gourmet kitchen items (mostly a little overpriced - buy your Maine Sea Salts cheaper elsewhere!!!!), some specialty clothing and jewelry as well as a few other... More

We tasted some chocolate at a gift shop in Eastport and the shop owner encouraged us to stop in where the magic happens in Lubec. We're glad we did. The young woman working there was so sweet and very generous with the samples. Very nice store with lots of cool alpaca wool items and jewelry along with all that delicious... More
