They have the best sponge candy in all of WNY, bar none. The selection of other candies is quite extensive and they also offer Perry's ice cream which is delicious any time. Convenient hours.

This is part of a small chain. The chocolate is good but not great...certainly only not worth a special trip.

We spent WAY too much money here. The chocolate is not cheap, but this is a case of "you get what you pay for". The dark chocolate is semi-sweet, but very smooth and creamy. The dark chocolate covered pretzels were stupid good.

This chocolate and candy is addicting!! You are intrigued by the smells from outside the quaint building right in the very heart of town. You walk in and immediately, you succumb to the decadent aroma of chocolate. There are so many selections and novelty items...More

Did not bother to buy. It says chocolatier but it is a store. No making happening and staff looked bored and disinterested, struggled to speak to me. I can make my own sponge candy so... well really... I'll stay away...

We went for a walk and wanted to check out this place. Im So glad we did. The chocolate and toffee was to die for. We even went for a second visit on our way home it was that good.

We made a point to stop here to reward our toddler for being good on the trip. It smelled so yummy, we had a hard time choosing our treats. Our daughter settled on some jelled lemons (which she gobbled up.)

A nice candy shop with a good variety of chocolate, candy and ice cream too. It was a little on the expensive side, but the place is quaint, clean and comfortable
