The is a store, not a restaurant. But, you can purchase chocolate delicacies from around the world right here in Carytown/Richmond. The malted milk ball selection can't be beat. Holiday candy selections are second to none. If you enjoy chocolate, this is the place to go.

I can't count how many times I have walked into this store just to smell it. However, I have tasted a lot of the specialty chocolates, truffles, and chocolate-covered-everything. The staff is helpful, and the products are quality. Go here. :)

Even the TSA agents got friendlier when they saw the bag. This store has a remarkable array of chocolates and other candies from around the world. The handmade confections behind the counter justify a trip to Richmond.

A chocolateholics paradise! I bought several Christmas gifts there, as well as a dark chocolate candy bar for my step-daughter who is quite the critic of candy. This store has an amazing array of candy, not just chocoate. It is fun to look around!

I am originally from Baltimore Maryland. I was in Richmond visiting my daughter for a few days and she took me to this cute shopping area called Carytown. It was enough to make me consider relocating because the convenience of all the different kind of shops is amazing! I found heaven when I walked into FOR THE LOVE OF CHOCOLATE!... More

If you are in Carytown you need to stop in. They have all kinds of chocolate. If you want a chocolate turkey for your Thanksgiving table they have it!!! They also have some non chocolate candies. We brought home a granny smith apple covered in caramel and two kinds of chocolate. It was fantastic. If you want something fun and... More

This store has the best variety of choclate in town. From imported choclate to locally made truffles, this store has it all. The staff are most helpful in suggesting specialty chocolates. They really need a larger store for all the stock they carry.

In my opinion if you can't find the chocolate you are looking for here, it doesn't exist. I thought the selection was fantastic and enjoyed browsing to see what all chocolate goodies are out there. I felt the prices were reasonable and didn't know what to choose. All chocoholics should definitely stop in if they are in the area. My... More
