Stopped to purchase a few chocolates. They offered several samples, and we were immediately sold. The prices are not cheap, but much better than Godiva, or anything else that I have ever tasted. She also sells some beautiful alpaca clothing from Peru

I have read about this place for years. We finally made it!!! And it is amazingly divine! Thank goodness for mail order! I don't know the Peruvian secret, but it's worth saving! There's so much to choose from, we got a sea sponge and Raspberry wine truffles. They were both phenomenal! Monica is very friendly, as is her staff!

Beautifully laid out gift shop that offers Peruvian chocolates that are freshly made and created on the premises. The bonbons were some of the best that I have had including those that I previously sampled in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Denmark, England, Ireland, and Switzerland. The free samples offered to new visitors by Monica and her well trained staff... More

If you get to Lubec, Maine or further to Campobello Island, eventually someone is going to mention Monica's Chocolates. I highly recommend a visit to the store, try a sample, and then hold yourself back. Remenber, "everything in moderation"' Delicious!!

Locally made chocolates, alpaca sweaters and jewelry. Peruvian chocolate sold by the piece or small units- I thought quite expensive .You could easily pass by if short on time.

Monica's was a rare find and a total surprise. We had low expectations having been to Ganong chocolates in St. Stephens the day before. Monica's chocolate is made from Peruvian dark beans and the chocolate blended on-site. We had a hot chocolate, a box of chocolate caramel pecan (turtle like), and looked at jewelry. The velvety hot chocolate is to... More

This surprising store just outside Lubec is a real find! I did some of my Christmas shopping--amazingly priced jewelry, excellent chocolates, lovely alpaca sweaters and much more. I'll be ordering more items through their website. Note: No meals are available here anymore, so it should not be considered a "restaurant" by TripAdvisor. But don't miss the free samples of their...

Have a sample and you will not walk out empty handed. Besides the wonderful chocolates, try their hot chocolate. It is to die for, really. You'll only need the small size as it is very rich.
