Being a chocolate lover I had to be sure we stopped here. We were greeted at the door by a lovely young lady who asked if we had been here before. Since this was our first time she took us aside and offered us a chocolate sampling and explained about how their candy is made. Very informative. We then did... More

Absolutely to die for. Whether it's bonbons for you or chocolates in the shape of moose, lobsters, and bears for those back home, this chocolate is amazing. Try the blueberry clusters- you won't regret it!

This chocolatier is one of the best! I am not a world traveler by any means, but there has to be some technique that this lady learned from her Peruvian roots. The bon bons, which are my favorite (pictured), are so very delicious, so eloquent to the palate...very rich in taste. Not only are these chocolates delicious, but they are... More

The candy is made on the premises and you may take a tour if you like. The Neehams are a Maine specialty and a must to try. There is also, inexpensive but nice jewelry. A room devoted to import items from Peru, which are of high quality. It is worth a visit. Trust me!

Absolutely delicious chocolates. We were riding past and decided to stop. Great selection of very high quality chocolates. Easily as good as Godiva.

I gave it 5 stats however, this business could be improved by cutting back on the pressure sales. It doesn't take rocket science to know that a customer who comes here is likely going to buy. There was a nice young lady who was helping us but at points she got to be downright pushy - almost as if she... More

The caliber of the chocolates, all made on the premises, is incredible! You're offered samples upon arrival and can try different possibilities. Especially if you're unsure of something. Monica is a delight as are any of her staff you come upon. I was buying some gifts when I last visited and was able to get sugar free chocolate without nuts.... More

This is a chocolate lovers paradise. Exquisite chocolates. Beautiful presentation. Many varieties. We also purchased hot chocolate that rivaled my favorite Parisian shop. Monica's also sells some local products, some beautiful imported sweaters and other clothes and jewelry but the chocolate is the starz here. Very pricey and worth it!

Over the years, the fortunes of the tiny Maine fishing village of Lubec, Maine, have come and gone, come and gone. Businesses full of hope one day, are gone the next season. Go there in late fall, or in the winter, and find nary any place but the local grocer and Monica's open. Why is this chocolate shop open year... More

Monica the owner was very personable and made good suggestions for what we might like. Excellent packing provided since we are only halfway into our trip. Samples were wonderful, too.
