Dropped in here on flying visit. Hot chocolate is excellent. Great selection of chocolates, lovely staff. Small, friendly artisan business. Really good. Not cheap! But good chocolate never is.

Some of the best chocolate I've had in Europe yet. All the chocolate appears to be made right on site. Lots of variety, but without anything too overwhelming. Prices are high but not outrageous. Shop itself is rather nice. Definitely worth a stop if you...More
