Yum!

I have visited Monica's Chocolates every time I am in Washington County. It is well worth the trip. The products are excellent quality, beautifully, package and there seems to be more variety every time I am . Everyone there is very friendly and helpful, especially Monica herself who is often there.

If you are within an hours drive, please treat yourself to some of the best chocolate on the east coast. I'd recommend the drinking chocolate for those who haven't been south enough to experience it before.

The candy is amazing! Great quality and great presentation. There is also a lot of jewelry, sweaters, etc. for sale. Prices were very reasonable.

Monica's is famous in Maine, and for good reason. Her out of the way shop/factory in Luboc is filled with handmade chocolate of all types, as well as Peruvian giftware, including clothes and jewelry. Monica, who is from Peru, discussed each type of chocolate with us, passing out samples of various treats. The Peruvian chocolate has a dark, intense flavor... More

Creatively designed display areas for Monica's many chocolate creations/flavors and Peruvian woolens and jewelry. Monica herself offered us samples and spent time chatting with us. The chocolate was very good but expensive.

We have a lot of guests from away who visit us and they always stop at Monica's before they return home to stock up on the delicious chocolates. The owner always greets you with a smile and the service is great.

I was told by my host about Monica's. Since I love chocolate, I decided a visit was in order. Upon entering, I was offered a taste of one of the candies. What smart marketing. Of course, once I had tasted the divine confection, I had to buy some. I had expected to buy an assorted box of chocolates, but Monica's... More

So glad we stopped here. The chocolate raspberry truffles were fabulous! It was difficult to choose from the many different chocolate items in the store. All were unique, and the taste was so different from any other homemade chocolate we've tried. The shop is situated in a beautiful white cape style home. I expected to walk into the owner's livingroom.... More

I don't know how this ended up in the restaurant category, because it is not a restaurant. It is a very nice candy store, wonderful chocolate, but not FOOD, unless you consider candy a food. (OK, it is a food, BUT it is not fair to the competition to call this a restaurant.) The work that a restaurant has to... More
