Unique chocolates, coffees & desserts are offered here. The chocolates are almost too pretty to eat; then you have to decide whether to gift them or treat yourself🙂. Definitely worth a visit.

Off the charts outstanding. Ambience, service, and comfort pale only in comparison to the quality of the food and drink. I don’t know much about Algona (yet), but I’ll be stunned if there is any cafe or bakery that can compare. Bravo!

I stopped in for lunch by myself. I had the Mod Box which was a sampler tray. Everything on it was very tasty and just the right amount. It even had a sample of their chocolate. Everyone was very friendly and help. Enjoyed the experience.

I saw this place on Iowa Ingredient (IPTV) and decided to make a stop on the way to Okoboji. It's an older building that has been well kept and is very spacious. There's seating for probably 30 people and access to a neighboring decor shop....More

The chocolate season was a wonderful lunch spot. Probably the BEST French onion soup ever! The summer chicken salad was also fabulous! Great ambiance for a fun lunch with friends. Also a great shop adjacent.
