Who knew truffles come in such variety? Unique and exotic flavors to tickle your taste buds. Go ahead, spend the money, get the 1/4lb container and try most of them! Live a little...count calories another day :)

What a treat to sink your teeth into the delicious 2 bite truffles. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner and tasting several varieties of his truffles including champagne, cayenne, caramel, cognac and chocolate. All were delicious. Wished we could have had room to eat more. Definitely worth stopping in to see.

This tiny shop is just big enough for the truffle-maker, an espresso machine, and a case full of tiny, delicious, two-bite truffles. They aren't fancy in shape but their flavors are exquisite. Go There!

So many flavors of truffles. The consistency is smooth and decadent! I loved the dark chocolate and caramel but the green tea was also amazing. My daughter loved the pomegranate. Great coffee too and you get a free truffle with your coffee!

The truffles are among my favorite desserts, and these at XOX are really good. The place itself is nothing special (why_) but the coffee is very good. Try the cognac truffle...yummie!

It's like a hidden secret in North Beach. This truffle store makes the best truffles. They're not too sweet and you have a variety of flavors to try. I love the dark chocolate truffles but Hubby recently brought me back a mix of dark and cognac truffles. It took a little getting used to the burn from the alcohol but... More

We were walking down the street and saw a sign that said best truffles. They are delicious! The owner was really nice and the hot chocolate was great. A very cute little place that makes the truffles on location. Delicious

To be honest I ran into this place by accident. This was one of the best discoveries I have ever made. First of all I am not a big fan of chocolate but these truffles where AMAZING. Everything is made in store, a chef comes in every morning and makes the truffles fresh. They also have amazing coffee. I highly... More

Wow were these incredible. Small bites of chocolate that have huge flavor! We visited this spot on a walking food tour. The person who waited on us was lovely. She was great in helping us to decide exactly the right truffles to choose.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
