“Lives up to its name”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Ethereal means "marked by unusual delicacy or refinement," and Ethereal Confections chocolates certainly are. I wish we could have bought a sample of every unusual flavor combination like Black Cherry Lemonade (yes, it's a chocolate bar) or Sweet Basil and Cherry Blossom, but we only sprang for three. So far, we have tasted (finished, actually) the French Vanilla and Salted Almond dark chocolate bar, which melted in our mouths. No almond chunks in this bar, just subtly flavorful fondant. We took our treasures to-go, but in the future we'd love to sit and sample the cafe options here. They look luscious.

“A place Woodstock really needed! Unique and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

I lived in Woodstock for 20 years, and restaurants come and go. I hope this one stays though. It's been renovated impeccably, and is far larger than you'd think. There is a lounge, front counter, cafe/bar... The menu primarily has sweets (desserts, truffles, etc.) and they sell their famous chocolate bars here. There are some lunch items, more like appetizers (cheese plate, olive medley), and really interesting and unique cocktails. The prices are quite high, so if you want to enjoy the delicious treats, expect to spend more than $10 on coffee and a sweet. But definitely worth a quality boutique chocolate experience in downtown Woodstock.
