We were there this pas December, just walking around San Francisco for the first time, when I see the sign Truffles. I am a chocolate truffle lover, I even make them myself. But the box of 20 for $13 all different kinds..the were all amazing. The guy that helped us gave us two free ones to try. My favorites were,... More

There are some 20 different flavors of hand rolled truffles. Obviously made with very good quality chocolate. To top it off, the service is friendly and helpful. Order some coffee and sit at the sidewalk provided tables to savor your treats.

It's a somehow hidden place, but you may find amazing artisanal truffles made by a French chocolatier. Give a try!

If you are interested in an authentic chocolate experience, find your way to Columbus street in San Francisco. In this tiny envelope of a store you will find the Chef up to his elbows in rich chocolate, hand making a serious assortment of culinary confection. The dozen or so flavors are always changing but you will never be disappointed. Every... More

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
