OMG!

Chocolate doesn't get any better than this. I've tasted chocolate in SF for over 30 years and for my money these truffles are by far the best! Unpretentious.

Jean Marc makes each truffle by hand using imported French chocolate, fresh cream and butter. The caramels are lush. These are half the price of the commercial chocolatiers in the Mission and ferry bldg. he is a gem of the neighborhood

Delicious hand made truffles of all descriptions. Melt in your mouth variety! All cocoa used is imported from France and the very best quality .

We tell more people to pop into XOX Truffles because the huge variety of tiny sublime chocolate truffles will 'wow' you. Go ahead, do it. Buy the little box with 25 truffles - they are tiny and so yummy. We call them "poppers" - as we nonchalantly enjoy each and every flavor. Not cheap...Bon Appetit!

Run by a wonderful, classically trained gourmet French chef, you will find some of the best chocolate in the United States here. No exaggeration.

Great variety of small truffles so you can try many flavors. I love the standard dark chocolate but my wife loves the caramel, earl grey and raspberry.

Who can say no to artisanal chocolate? They have a variety of flavors to choose from. I tried the chocolate peanut butter. Not what I expected and it was Delicious! It melts in your mouth, so smooth. I also tried the dark chocolate and l'orange, both satisfying and satiating my sweet tooth without being overpowering.

The owner makes a variety of flavored truffles. I recently tried the lavender and it was good but I probably wouldn't buy again. The honey and vodka truffle was good but my favorite is the dark chocolate. The mocha coffee is good but a little weak. 20 truffles cost $14, they're small sized but delicious.

This small shop is definitely one of our treasure in San Francisco. Every piece of chocolate they sell is hand-made, but the flavor is unbeatable. The staff is so welcoming, and let us taste anything we liked. The price is very reasonable. We'd love to go back here for several boxes of chocolate some day we're in SF again.

What can I say? At first sip, I knew the coffee was special. Did I mention a free truffle for every drink? We stopped here twice daily to get our coffee fix. They open early but also close early. The truffles were amazing too. Wish there was one in Salt Lake.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
