We stopped here for gelato. We got a double scoop dish with salted caramel and one scoop pistachio. Both flavors were delicious and we like the texture. The chocolate looked good, but we didn't try any so I can't comment on that. There were some tables to sit at outside. I would definitely go back when I am in the... More

The chocolates here are unique and delicious. The dark chocolate and potato chip and rocky road bars are highly addictive, and the Choco Pods are yummy and Weight Watchers approved.

It was not and I felt totally ripped off. Maybe I chose the wrong flavor but for that price, every bite should have... More

The prices are high, but the chocolate is very good. The main draw is the interesting flavors that are added. These are innovative and unusual but they work. That's hard to pull off. Being weird is easy. Being interesting and tasty is difficult. It's definitely a place to try.
