Delicious ice-cream- thoroughly recommend the double chocolate! What was frustrating was despite the signs saying wear masks, the couple that came in after us wore no masks at all and it didn't seem to be a problem? Maybe because they drove up in a trump...pickup truck and were covered in trump regalia? Politics should be separate from health care. That's my only frustration.More

Stopped in to see what was available. Oh my! Lots and lots of chocolates beautifully displayed. The Associate was very friendly, engaging and full of information. I opted for a delish carmel apple and single scoop of chocolate peanut butter ice cream!

My husband and I, love dark chocolate. We each bought two different pieces, to test and share. We both found the dark chocolate to lack a rich flavor.

This is always a MUST when we are nearby! The chocolate is "heaven", and handmade right there. The owners create their pieces in the window when it is less busy. You cannot go wrong with anything you order. We chose some truffles....hubs says they are...spectacular. I chose a variety of chocolate with caramel. The little one had a chocolate ice cream cone. I consider their prices very fair for the quality chocolate you get. Do NOT miss this Carmel institution!More

hand made chocolates of SO many types. Get one of each you like and share! However, day I was there, the man behind the counter had a lousy attitude...like we were bothering him by coming in. Need to replace him with a friendly place. We...would have bought more from a friendly person!More

Not only do I stop here on my annual visits to Carmel for my daily chocolate fix, I also mail/phone order throughout the year. They make the BEST chocolate, coconut haystacks. Like the title of the store suggests, one bite of this chocolate and you...are in Heaven!More

Pieces of Heaven has a nice selection of in-house made chocolates and fudge along with ice cream offerings. They also carry a decent selection of sugar-free chocolate offerings.

Not only is chocolate for sale but ice cream, too. Staff was friendly and helpful. There was a sale section available. Chocolates include tastes with nuts, pretzels, carmels, etc. There is gift packaging available as well. Lots to see and great flavors. I would return...again.More

I've been to this place over the years and they have consistently made items in small batches. This visit was especially rewarding since the dried apricot that was covered in chocolate was nearly double the size I remember. The chocolate covered strawberries started with large...strawberries and then your choice of dark, milk or white chocolate coverings. The owners are a little distant, I attribute it to their extensive commute and just being tired - they commute in from Fresno...which is at least a 2+ hour commute one direction. I am quite satisfied with my macadamia nut dark chocolate turtle - so to me I'm happy consuming their product, despite the lack of smiles from the owners.More

A little over a year ago I was down in the Carmel/Monterey area on business. I happened to stop by a very nice shopping area called The Barnyard. They have a great assortment of stores, varying from dress shops, jewelry stores, restaurants and even a...bike shop. Being in the area again, this last weekend, I had to stop by and make another visit. Hidden away in this little place is one of the most delightful candy stores in the entire area. To call it just a candy store is actually a misquote. It’s more like it’s name “A piece of Heaven”. I myself am not a chocoholic. My wife on the other hand, really knows her stuff on the subject. All of their chocolates are made on the premises. I am partial to the chocolate covered orange peel, but everything from the truffles to the marshmallows are a delight. You would do yourself a disservice by missing the opportunity to stop here. It’s a locally owned family business and either Peg or Bob Whitted will be more than happy to sell you something or just talk. They genuinely care about their clientele and show an interest in where you’re from and what brought you to Monterey. This place is a true Chocolaterie in every sense of the word. This is only the second time that I’ve been here… it will not be the last.More
