I was looking for a place to work for a bit and came in here- it's a cool shop and comfortable space. All kinds of amazing and beautiful chocolate options. Cool and affordable artworks and crafts and jewelry by local artists. Had the half spicy drinks no chocolate- rich, and a gluten free cookie which was good. Wifi connection was... More

Absolutely, thoroughly, completely enjoyed my drinking chocolate. And they have dairy-free/vegan option - I simply can't ask for more. Drinking chocolate is amazing...it's a little cup of heaven...basically like drinking warm, melted chocolate. So good.

Truffles, truffles, truffles. Locally owned and operated. The chocolates are mouth watering. The drinkable chocolate is not exactly "hot chocolate". The Aztec chocolate can be quite spicy. The decor is from local artists and artisans. It's all good! Parking is also good in this strip mall and the place is accessible by People Movers Bus system.

We stumbled across Modern Dwellers and were extremely happy that we did! The vegan dark chocolate meltaways were awesome, and the dark chocolate sea salt toffee was intensely flavorful and crisp. We also picked up a dark chocolate bar with salmon bits that came highly recommended. It's always good to find good chocolate in one's travels! The woman who was... More

My family just discovered that the owner of Modern Dwellers designed and built all the metal furniture in the restaurant. Great place to bring the family - even the guys. The spicy chocolate is the best dessert ever.

Seriously, what is better than drinking chocolate?? This is a warm cozy environment with a neat atmosphere. Cute gift items and CHOCOLATE! Seriously, I pop in to drink some chocolate when I need a pick me up or just want to do a little something for me. It's the best.

Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge is a decadent delight for Alaska's chocoholics and visiting chocoholics. The chocolates are exceptional, and these folks specialize in drinkable chocolate. The drinkable chocolate can be served several different ways and is worth trying... this was our first visit; we plan on making many more!

What more is there to say. Chocolate in all forms. Delectable truffles, flavors you might not think of but work amazing. The drinking chocolate is heavenly and you can get a variety of locally made bars as well as international sources.

Chelsea was a great help in providing a gift basket for my wife for our anniversary. Delivered great chocolates to the hotel we were staying in Anchorage.

Quirky shop with delicious chocolate offerings, from "drinkable chocolate," a sensual taste, to gourmet candies. Had to return a second time on my way home!
