This small place is a nice surprise and it is fun to show off to visitors for that very reason. Chocolate lovers will be VERY happy this place. Plus, if you want lollypops, you can find those, too. The aroma walking through the door makes...your mouth water. You know you are in the right place to take care of that sweet tooth! Not a restaurant...just a super little candy shop with nice employees and great cooks!More

The place is always spotless clean and the chocolate delights are always fresh and easily identifiable. They often allow samples as well. Love that they have wine too which helps tie a chocolate gifttogether
