Even including Switzerland, William Dean Chocolates is one of the few establishments in the world where you can enjoy hand-crafted chocolates with delicious, unusual flavors that are beautifully decorated. They also have excellent macaroons and gelatos. William Dean treats sweets making as an art form.

This place has the coolest chocolates, and not to mention their owner has had his chocolates in The Hunger Games movies! I'm not a big chocolate fan, but my boyfriend is. One day, on a slow afternoon, we went in for a treat and started chatting to the guy behind the counter. After an hour, we realized it was Mr.... More

Undoubtedly the hand crafted chocolates are a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. The favorites are here consistently and new creations are always being offered as well. And be aware, pastries, macarons, fruit pates, gelatos, and various other sweet offerings are available as well. Don't pass them up!

The chocolates are little works of art that are almost too pretty to eat. I thought that surely they couldn't taste as good as they looked. Boy was I wrong! The chocolate is the smoothest, silkiest chocolate I've ever tasted and the unusual flavors are a heavenly surprise wrapped inside the handmade chocolates. The Macarons are chewy melt in your...

This is not a restaurant. These chocolates are small and very expensive and shipping makes them a really stupid price. Having said that, they are the best chocolates we have ever had, and beautiful works of art.

The chocolates are very creative from a flavor standpoint and also appearance. The friendly employees will let you try some nibbles of the various chocolates to acquaint you with the taste of the unique flavors. A great special gift and you can treat yourself too!! Have fun!

Made on the premises by professional confectionists. All types of gourmet chocolates are available. Pricey though. They also have gellato in different flavors. I had a sample of the mango, it was awesome! Because, I am told that I am an ignorant chocolate eater, that I would prefer to eat Dove chocolate (but not Hershey) to William Dean, this store... More

This place has such crazy combinations and they are all delicious. The last time I had chocolates this good I was in Europe. As a fan of the series, I was also excited to learn that the chocolates were featured in The Hunger Games. It's definitely pricey, so be ready for that, but it's worth it.
