Thought we were going for some great chocolate, which they most certainly have. The coffee was amazing too. Friendly young lady served us, she was so friendly and knew her stuff. The smell was incredible, chocolate and coffee. Oh yeah.

The staff were friendly but the chocolates and fudge were dissatisfying. We got the Cade's cove truffles. They were awful. The peanut butter fudge was good. We got another flavor that I think was called tiger something. It wasn't that great.More
