I took my daughter for the afternoon tea. It was an awesome experience! The tea, sandwiches, scones and chocolates were amazing! Even my daughter loved everything. The staff were so kind and helpful. Wonderful experience and great mommy/daughter outing!

I stopped in to see what they had to offer. I was in the process of getting several friends (who are all cancer survivors) and we all adore chocolate in any form. They were able to put together a very personalized & delicious gift for each of my dear friends.

Wow this place is a dream. Like Charlie's chocolate factory, but better. The chocolates are beautiful. And delicious too. The staff are friendly and so helpful. Drop by this place just to see the works of art.
