Visit during the busy Columbus Day weekend...we were not aware that a festival was occuring in town...the festival was a disappointment...especially the pumpkin launch...but happened upon this delightful store which offers up the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted along with a variety of goodies. Had the soft Amish sugar cookie which paired very well with the chocolate.

This is one of the places we duck into when we want good coffee, a chocolate something, and sometimes just to take a break when we're shopping in town. Located on the main drag in the charming beach town of South Haven, Michigan, the Chocolate Cafe has consistently great offerings with comfortable places to enjoy them, both inside and out.... More

Stopped in here over Memorial Day weekend and while we liked this place in the past, we found it to be in a state of confusion. Word was the place is up for sale and they even had a sign up proclaiming it along with the asking price. OK. We can deal with that. We can deal with the inside... More

This is a small shop that has big flavor. We drive over there to view the lake and stop in for something to eat. I love going over there. It is only about 1 hour away for me so when I am having a craving I can jump in my car and drive there. It is easy to find.

Our group of women stopped in and enjoyed some hot chocolate -- they serve a great variety. We also purchased some of their yummy caramel corn.

This is in a cute little courtyard right on the busy downtown strip. A nice place to get a treat and sit down and rest your feet from all the shopping. They have cookies, brownies, fudge and all sorts of chocolate as well as a coffee bar and ice cream next door. It's not cheap but it is good. I... More

Chocolate Cafe used to be wonderful, however, the last couple of times I've bought anything there it's been very disappointing. I'm a sucker for dark chocolate. Their dark chocolate truffles USED to be absolutely heavenly. I some last winter and they weren't very good, I chalked it up to probably less than fresh, due to slow business during the winter....
