To-die-for fudge, cute place, with nice little place to sit behind. Seriously amazing fudge. I wanted to buy all the treats.

I stayed here while my daughter and her children biked along the bike path to the bay. I had a great latte, and later a very good pressed sandwich (mozarella, pesto, and sun dried tomatoes). All were under $5 and $5.08 with tax. Unfortunately, they had run out of the vegan soup which I wanted to try to. They have... More

The Almond Cream Cake is to die for!!! Good thing that I don't live near this place or I would be gaining some major weight! Must try this cake! Now, for the chocolate cake and frozen hot chocolate...not as great. The cake was dry but still had some tasty parts. The frozen hot chocolate was a disappointment, my daughter wouldn't... More

It is all about excellent customer care. Coffees, ice cream, pastries, homemade chocolates. Conveniently next to the Rail Trail so you can work off your sweet indulgences !!

Our friends took us here, on a recent visit to Cape Cod, for a hot chocolate milk shake. I loved the slushy chocolatey goodness! Other must haves are the Carmel chocolate dipped pretzels rods, toffee, fudge and of course the ice cream!

Lively and fun but beware of crowding in summer! Good coffee and hot chocolate, so-so breakfast pastries and sandwiches, a cozy place to set up your computer and check email. Nicely packaged candy and fresh fudge to bring home. If the food were better, I would have given them five stars.

We tried Emack and Bolios but like Chocolate Sparrow better. They have more flavors. Some outdoor seating. I had a chocolate frappe. Yum. The rest of my party had ice cream. I know my husband said he saw Richardsons containers. That had him sold. LOL

Satisfy any sweet cravings---they have it all! From pie to fudge to ice cream creations. The only downside is the crowds, but good for people watching.

We went here several times recently for desserts, coffee, and tea. The baked desserts were even better than the ice cream (though the hot fudge was great!), while the Fair Trade coffee and (from Maine) hand-packed tea were both excellent. Seating is informal but cramped -- okay for us, but maybe an issue for people with limited mobility. Still, this... More
