This is probably the best chocolate store I have ever visited. A real taste of the Fine European chocolates. The collection is amazing! The staff provided topnotch service without intruding or pushing any products. You will find a wide range of prices. Difficult to walk out without buying!

This place is wild! First visit was amazing! I think I walked out with (purchased) 5 pounds or so of candy. They have so many types and flavors and assortments of most types or candy. From imported to local. It's all delicious!! Check it out! But don't go hungry are you'll buy too much:-)!
