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.

I buy truffles here each time I am in San Francisco and I recommend them to all my friends who love chocolate. Soft, creamy and wonderful.

I was introduced to XOX while on a Tastebud Tour. A chocolate lover's paradise! I have never seen such a variety of truffles! A small example of the different flavors includes champagne, lemon, red wine, earl grey and my personal favorite.... lavender. The proprietor,Chef Jean-Marc Gorce is from France where he learned how to make these amazing truffles from his... More

I was introduced to this tiny establishment years ago while on a food walking tour of San Francisco and loved their truffles enough to order them to be shipped to me several times for special occasions. Over the years I had forgotten about it until my family literally stumbled upon it during our current SF visit! Delicious hand made truffles... More

A co-worker of mine told me about this place and I have to say it is fantastic! Those truffels are really really delicious. 20 truffels are $13.

We popped in here after reading the reviews and were very pleased. The truffles survived the flight back to the UK very well and meant we could continue to enjoy memories of our honeymoon after returning to the real world. I would recommend a selection. They really are all good.

This little truffle store is owned by a charming frenchman who used to be a chef. We visited his store during a sidewalk food tour, where he told us his story, and showed us how he makes his truffles. Cognac flavor is his favorite - mine too! So good, we bought two boxes for gifts.

Made a special trip to XOX while in the Bay Area. It's a very small store and would be easy to miss if you're not careful. The cable cars run right by the store, or there's parking along the curb right out front. Got a box of 20 truffles for $13. They're the smaller French style truffles, but they come... More

Like other reviewers I found this tiny gem by accident. I've been going for years and still feel these are the best truffles in the world. Go early during your stay in San Francisco so you have time to go back for another box . By the time you get home you will be wishing you bought more.
