Forget all of those big name chocolatiers - Hot Chocolates has them all beat! They make the best truffles I've ever had in North America or Europe, and I am a real chocolate lover. This is the only place I ever buy gift chocolate boxes for friends and family. WE are so lucky to have them in our little community!... More

Hot Chocolates is so much more than chocolate. There is delicious coffee, ice cream, pastries and now olive oil.

Must go to if you are visiting the Valley or a local who needs a gourmet coffee and a chocolate treat. Truffles are made with creation and passion and you can see and taste it in each bite. Proud to be a regular while growing up in the Valley and continue to frequent as I pass through.

There is really nothing to say but yum. Pure silky goodness. An experience like no other. Very professional owners and staff. Not your average chocolate shop but be prepared to pay for quality for it is pricey.

It's always a pleasure to drop in for a beverage or pick up a nice chocolate present or breads or beverage enhancements. Also a pleasant and restful atmosphere to relax and warm up with a hot chocolate and a snack during the cold season. Loved the visits.

You can taste taste different olive oil and speciality vinegars or enjoying freshly made deserts everyone can enjoy. The cheesecake with the spiced apple cranberry topping is our of... More

the left half of the restaurant is the bakery and the right has the chocolate shop and some small tables for consuming your treats. We tried the savory croissant, and apple strudel and a strawberry rhubarb pastry. All were very good.

This is a nice store to visit, they have wonderful bread and scones, carrot cake to die for, nice tortes etc. Their hot chocolate and specialty coffee drinks are over priced, over $3.00 for a small hot chocolate, barely 4 mouthfuls..
