Dave and his mother Amy are very friendly and helpful and they have a smile for everyone. The truffles are exceptional and well worth the trip. I highly recommend this shop for both the quality of the confections and the owners convictions. I give it 5 stars.

This place is a gem in Kalamazoo! The chocolates are absolutely delicious. One thing other reviewers have not mentioned is the incredible variety which is in the display case every day. There are dark chocolate truffles, milk chocolate truffles, white chocolate truffles, and caramels enrobed in dark or light or white chocolate. You can order your own box from dozens... More

These chocolate creations look and taste the best. They are the best because the chocolates are made with fresh, quality ingredients. If you enjoy good chocolates this is the place for you! PS: Visit the Victorian Bakery located next door in the same building.

The chocolates are creatively made with fair trade quality ingredients, by people sharing a vision of community service. I took them as a gift to my friends in Europe who are used to very good chocolate and they raved about them.

This is an extremely socially-minded store. Dale orders all of his ingredients carefully to ensure they are grown in a socially-just manner (sustainably, no child labor malpractice) and often employs incarcerated youth from the area to help them gain employability. Plus, the chocolates are out of this world, and at a very reasonable price for their quality. You get a... More

If you love chocolate - any type of chocolate - they have it. The Truffles are beautiful and so so good! The Bark varieties to choose from are endless. They know everything about chocolate and how it is so important to our diets! The mission of this store is what drew me in. Dale and his Mother are what make... More
