Monica's Chocolates is a worthwhile stop on a trip to Lubec. Not only are their chocolates divine, but they have a great selection of jewelry and clothing. We were offered samples, which helped us decide on what to purchase. I also bought some very reasonably priced jewelry. The store is just lovely!

Monica's Chocolates are awesome! The blueberry wine soaked chocolate truffle is as delicious as anyone could imagine. Every flavor melts in you mouth. Our family and friends will be the lucky recipients of the chocolates. They serve free samples!

So if you're looking for gifts, more than just chocolates, stop in here. This shop has a great selection of jewelry, clothes, marinades, jellies, and of course the chocolate! This is probably the best store I saw in Lubec and it has a lot of a fun things if you're into buying mementos.

The bon-bon type chocolates are sooo wonderful...some are pecan, walnut, plum, coconut, or cashew filled with a Peruvian filling that is like nothing ever tasted before, but very elegant! Smooth and rich! My first experience was when Monica herself let my friend and I have a bit of a taste of some of her confections, and now, when I want... More

Monica was so nice and welcoming. She offered us a sample of her homemade, handmade chocolates and even took us on a tour.

What a great treat at the end of the day! Monica graciously showed us her confections in the making.... a labor of love. Painstaking attention to technique and detail produce a mouthwatering result. Didn't expect to bring chocolate home from Maine, but my husband loved the dark chocolate with blueberries. There are no bad choices. The Alpaca sweaters and scarves... More

Monica treats you like family when you walk in, insisting you try things. It's impossible to refuse - and luckily it is worth every calorie! Her Peruvian "truffle" things - the giant tasty chocolate balls of gooey Peruvian caramel and other fillings - may well be one of the finest treats I've ever indulged in. They put any store-bought candy... More

My father and I were recently visiting Lubec Maine. We happened into Monica's chocolates. It is huge. Upon arriving we were offered large samples of some of the best chocolates we had ever eaten. Apart from chocolates, there are lots and lots of handicrafts from Peru that are absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth a visit.
