“Great place - I hope business allows you to stay open!!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Entered to the smell of delicious chocolates with some unusual yet delicious combinations. Wonderful and knowledgeable staff explaining chocolates and we bought a box of truffles with friends to share. Wandered thru the back rooms. How wonderful for Woodstock!! I love a cool, quiet place to meet with friends for a drink, tea, or coffee. We could have sat and talked for hours over coffee. I just hope the town can support such a unique shop.

“Weird place, unable to find something to order”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

The front of the store is a workshop. Mostly filled with dirty dishes and equipment. It is not appetizing at all but we went in. What we saw as we had to walk to the very back of the store even made us feel more at unease. There was a few couches and game tables in a small room and then finally we entered an area with a long bar and a few tables and chairs. We were told to stand at the bar to order. But there was no bar wait person. A few people came out of the kitchen and said they would be right with us, but not one actually came out. We saw a couple of what appeared to be pastries under a cake dish. They were not all that appealing. At this point we decided it was best to leave. Sorry I could not try the place. I don't think they quite have the flow and atmosphere worked out yet. If they can keep a business going and redecorate, we might come back.

“a great place to go in the evenings”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Some of us aren't bar people or have older kids and want something fun to do in in the evenings. This is the place. The hot chocolate was great and different from the usual. The chocolate peanut butter cookies were awesome. The chocolate pudding was very rich and piled high with whipped cream. Everything that we tried was wonderful. I want to try the chocolate covered figs and some of the uniquely flavored chocolates but didn't have room in my stomach on this trip. It is pricey but there is no place like this that I have run across--it is open until 10 pm on SUNDAY. I know of places in Fort Wayne and Indianapolis (Indiana), Chicago, and Toronto, but this is the first I've experienced around here. This place is worth a try.
