I gave it 5 stats however, this business could be improved by cutting back on the pressure sales. It doesn't take rocket science to know that a customer who comes here is likely going to buy. There was a nice young lady who was helping us but at points she got to be downright pushy - almost as if she... More

The caliber of the chocolates, all made on the premises, is incredible! You're offered samples upon arrival and can try different possibilities. Especially if you're unsure of something. Monica is a delight as are any of her staff you come upon. I was buying some gifts when I last visited and was able to get sugar free chocolate without nuts.... More

This is a chocolate lovers paradise. Exquisite chocolates. Beautiful presentation. Many varieties. We also purchased hot chocolate that rivaled my favorite Parisian shop. Monica's also sells some local products, some beautiful imported sweaters and other clothes and jewelry but the chocolate is the starz here. Very pricey and worth it!

Over the years, the fortunes of the tiny Maine fishing village of Lubec, Maine, have come and gone, come and gone. Businesses full of hope one day, are gone the next season. Go there in late fall, or in the winter, and find nary any place but the local grocer and Monica's open. Why is this chocolate shop open year... More

Monica the owner was very personable and made good suggestions for what we might like. Excellent packing provided since we are only halfway into our trip. Samples were wonderful, too.

We were lucky enough to try a couple samples and meet the owner, who was very helpful. Of course we HAD to bring home some of her goodies. The truffles are a little bite of heaven...chocolatey goodness! She also has some nice costume jewelry and clothing items from Peru. Well worth a stop!

This shop has a little bit of everything. Candy, jewelry, alpaca clothing and local sea salt and mustard. Monica makes the chocolates right on premises and there are none better. It is a great start in a little out of the way area.

The chocolates are fresh and delicious. If you're lucky, you'll get a little time to talk with the owner and see how the chocolates are made. My personal favorite: the blueberry truffles.

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.
