This place has a great range of ice cream, chocolate and other sweet treats. But the only thing you NEED to have is their hot chocolate. It is incredible - and we Europeans take our chocolate very seriously indeed...

I liked the fact that all the chocolate were hand made on location. A bit on the expensive side but I understand why. One needs to pay for chocolate that has the perfect balance of sweetness and flavour.

Loved the ice cream. A bit pricey but for a treat ... totally worth the indulgence. Good service and workers kept their sense of humour even when working with folks lined up through the door and their working in such a confined space. Smells heavenly.

The ice cream was excellent! Great flavour, creamy and just delicious! We also bought chocolate bar to try later and we weren't disappointed. We had ice cream there two days in a row, and I want to go back and try the rest of the flavours! The staff was really friendly!

Lavender chocolates, lavender gelato, I know really? Handmade in house I regret not buying more. Crystal Cove gave us a little taste and we couldn't get there fast enough to get more.

My wife and I decided to check out this place on our honeymoon for dessert one day after eating at the nearby Tacofina. The gelato was good but didn't have that airy taste I am used to and was more thick in texture. It was good nonetheless. We would consider visiting again.

Stopped by here for dessert after having lunch in the same complex. Too cold for ice cream, so we opted for some chocolate. Impressive for what they can pump out of such a small, cramped location. Good chocolate, but somewhat pricey for what you get. We got 4 pieces of chocolate from the case, and it was nearly $5...I get... More

We are also glad to hear you enjoyed the chocolates you chose! We take great care in using local, organic ingredients - we pick Clayoquot Blackberries each fall, purchase... More

What can you say: handmade chocolates. If I don't stop here and buy treats for my daughters I get the look when we get home
