Stopped in here as part of a Tastebud Tour. The owner/Chef was quite nice and showed us his process for making truffles. I was able to try the Champagne, Coconut, and Caramel flavors. All were excellent. This isn't your typical chocolate. Be sure to stop by XOX when in the North Beach area!

We went to XOX after reading a review of their truffles. We ordered a 20 piece truffle box for 13.00. At firs I was surprised by the truffles as they were clearly hand made and rolled mainly in cocoa powder. The truffles I am accustomed to are usually more polished looking with fancy colors and finishes- do not, I repeat,... More

XOX is, hands down, the best chocolate candy experience in San Francisco. The flavor and consistency of the truffles, the friendliness of the owner/chocolatier and the cuteness of the shop all won my heart. And if that was not enough, they are very inexpensive. XOX was last on a four shop self-designed chocolates tour on a recent Saturday. I was... More

The first time I had XOX truffles I was very impressed. Recently I called a few days ahead as I wanted to pick up quite a few packages as wedding favors. Jean-Marc was very helpful on the phone and when I went by the shop he had the truffles specially boxed and ready to go so that I was able... More

We were taken to XOX Truffles as part of our food walking tour in North Beach, from the front of the store it was quite unassuming, ordinary, inside was much the same. On the front window is a magazine article from 2001 stating that they were voted in the top ten of Artisan Chocolatiers, obviously the business remains successful. The... More

Wow, a little gem in the city of SF. Lot's of flavors to choose from, none of which are very big. We box a little box of 20 for $13. For the three of us there was plenty of choice and plenty of chocolate. The place is a small coffee shop (free truffle with a cup of coffee/cappuccino, etc.) The... More

I had read that this was the place to go for chocolate truffles in San Francisco and that part is probably true, but we felt that they were just "average" when compared to many other places we have been to across the country. The best truffles we have ever had so far are from Gail Ambrosius chocolates in Madison WI.... More

I stopped into XOX Truffles while in San Francisco with my fiance. I saw that if you bought a cup of coffee you got a free truffle and since I had not had my cup of coffee yet I thought why not. Jean Marc the owner was in the store making truffles which was an added bonus. The sign was... More

You have never had truffles like these. They are not pretty. They're little lumps covered in cocoa. But, they are little lumps of chocolate magic. They are firm but melt with a creaminess that defies description. Catch the trolley to North Beach and buy the box of 20. It will be the best $13 you spend in San Francisco.
