Not only is the chocolate excellent, but the sit down food that you can eat in their old sit down booths is quite good, too! The atmosphere is just so nice there! It really takes me back to the old days of ice cream parlors....because it IS one! And, if you find the price of the chocolate morsels too high,... More

If you love chocolate and fun, then this is your stop. We ate a light lunch, my wife had the Brat and I had the BLT. My B of my BLT, made it seem like heaven and this was before the dessert! We had a Fruity Tuity sundae which filled us to the brim with its large size. Then it... More

I was strolling along the street when I found this place. They have been in business since 1932. I bought up a ton of candies and chocolates and they were amazing. I want to return as they also serve homemade ice cream and sandwiches

The hand made chocolates are created using family recipes dating back more than 50 years! You can choose already packaged boxes, or creatively select your own choices for your unique box. Also on site is a small ice... More

I grew up in Manitowoc. My Mom would take us here as a special treat back in the 1960's. We always would order Olive Nut Sandwiches. YUMMY! I know of no other place that you can get this sandwich. Then we would buy some of their homemade chocolate. The inside still looks like it did when I was a kid.... More

Stopped in for a cup of coffee and a piece of chocolate. Coffee might not their normal thing to serve coffee to go. Awkwardly stood at the front counter as kids crowded in to look at the candy, while the waitress find and filled a styrofoam cup for me and added the cream cup to it. Delicious chocolate, though!!

After dinner we walked to Beerntsen's for a little dessert. Very charming establishment with a great array of chocolates and ice cream treats. Beautiful old wood booths to enjoy your indulgence in. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Bottom Line: Don't count calories, just go and enjoy!
