A mouthwatering selection of Exquisite chocolates for the senses. I couldn't walk past this gorgeous shop, the Windows so artfully displayed. So much choice & did not disappoint the tastebuds. Traditionally picture perfect in every way, a worthwhile speciality shop with friendly staff. Would recommend.
