The restaurant is incorporated with the candy store. The candy is the best anywhere. I always pick up a couple of boxes around the holidays or a special occasion. Govatos is a Wilmington, Delaware landmark.

My review is mostly about the chocolate - OMG I couldn't survive without their dark chocolate covered pretzels once a month! NO ONE makes them better then Govatos. But the restaurant on Market does a nice diner-like breakfast too.

We have purchased candies for special ocassions from Govatos Candies at 8th and Market Sts. for as long as I can remember. The candies are homemade and you can really taste the difference. Try their caramel apples at Halloween...I guarantee that you WILL be back again next year.

If you're looking for homemade chocolates and seasonal items rather than something prepackaged, this is the place to go in New Castle County. Their caramel apples at Halloween are fantastic. Great variety of Easter candy.
