This is an out of the way place worth the trip. We had fabulous dishes for breakfast, french toast, pancakes, waffles, and got to watch the baker work his magic with his team. Wow. That alone was worth it! Couldn't leave without some baked goods,...More

Chocolate Maven is a local favourite, in a town with a wealth of wonderful eateries to choose from. The food is consistently good, whatever you order, and the service always friendly. It's a place I like to meet friends.
