Wow!

I truly wanted to try one of everything, but I will have to settle for going back and trying a few each time. We had family visiting this weekend, so we stopped in for a coffee and chocolate.

My daughter and I-chocolate lovers-always stop by here on our yearly visit. The chocolates are mini works of art! Not only beautiful but delicious. The employees are very good in helping you choose just the right ones.

My sister and I enjoyed a high tea luncheon at William Dean Chocolates shop on 2/27/15. I've experienced a few tea luncheons in the area over the last few years and this is by far the best! The 3-tiered setup of tea sandwiches, sconces, and desserts is exquisite and the food delicious. A vast choice of 5 types of brewed... More

I have had their chocolate several times and never disappointed. Although as a whole I love really bitter chocolate and William Dean is more sweet. You can buy a reusable box with a magnetic catch which make this a really nice gift to give to a chocolate lover. Their Chocolates appeared in the Hunger Games movie as well. Worth going... More

If you want something a little different to give to a loved one or to take to a dinner party - you won't find better chocolates than William Dean. You firstly eat them with your eyes due to the assortment of colors that the chocolates have been decorated with and when you taste the individual flavors they tickle your taste... More

I love to eat and give as gifts the delicious William Dean Confections. Today was my first experience with their presentation of a tea (high tea or milk tea with scones and sandwiches plus of course desserts) I was impressed with both the quality and the presentation. There were probably 35 teas to choose from served from a silver thermal... More

Always a great day when you can visit William Dean Chocolates. The staff is friendly. There is a vast selection of specialty chocolates. Hand painted, these are all original. They also have desserts, gelato, and macaron cookies. I would suggest trying the pop rocks bar. The macarons are amazing. I can't begin to name my favorite flavor chocolate as there... More

William Dean's chocolates are out of this world, so when I had the opportunity to enjoy tea in their retail store, I jumped at the chance. The tea did not disappoint. I feared sitting in the retail store would detract from the ambiance, but we were so enraptured by the delicious and vast assortment of foods that our table of... More
