Monica's Chocolates in located before you get in town and very close to the Eastland where I stayed. Very surprised when I walked in. It was all boxed chocolates on stands with a picture of what it was. I was immediately greeted and offered a sample which she cut in front of me and showed me where that was located... More

Monica greets you so warmly in her shop just outside of Lubec! You are offered samples as you enter the dour. After visiting, touring the kitchen and choosing some of the delicious chocolate, we left feeling we had made a friend and had a most extraordinary experience. I think it is the same for everyone who stops in. She is... More

We've been coming to Lubec for several years and just never got to Monica s before. What a find! Alpaca sweaters from Peru, soft as a baby's bum in a wide variety of colors and designs. Monica was a much better judge of my proper size than I was. Great jewelry from Peru and India, reasonably priced. A the chocolate?... More

My teenage son and I had great fun wandering through this store. Not just a feast of wonderful chocolate, but a feast for the eyes as well. Beautifully displayed chocolates of every variety. We had the opportunity to taste some truffles. I enjoyed looking at the jewelry as well. All reasonably priced, I thought. Broke down and bought a couple... More

The peruvian hot chocolate is just the thing to shake off the chill from a Lubec foggy morning. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. The truffles are delicious.

Monica's is an unassuming building by the side of the road in Lubec. But inside it is anything but unassuming. Gourmet, exquisite chocolates of all sorts and flavors, handcrafted right there. "Artisan" is way overused today, but their confections are truly artisan. Open 7 days a week, you are always greeted as a friend, even if it is your first... More

A friend told me this was a must stop destination while in the Lubec area; she was right. Monica's chocolates are divine and the shop is very nice.

Family of four, warmly welcomed and greeted by Monica, the spritely old lady, neatly and well stacked shelves with amazing spread of chocolates and chocolates, quite sure not heard of and tasted, not highly pricy, got a personally guided tour of the little homely kitchen-factory in the basement where all those amazing delicious chocolates are made by her and her...

One room features sugar free chocolate. They make everything in their kitchen; even the... More

Monica's Chocolates is a definite stop if you are in the Lubec area. There are shelves and shelves of beautifully hand-crafted chocolates. They provided free samples and informed us that they make everything from scratch in their downstairs kitchen including their own caramel and filings. The candy is wonderfully delicious. There are molded lobsters and shells. The truffles with wine... More
