Description: The story of Christophe Artisan Chocolatier-Pâtissier is, above all else, a story of love. A story about one man's love for sharing his creations with others and his dedication to his French origins. Christophe Paume is a third-generation French chocolatier who grew up in his father's pâtisserie in Toulouse, France, where he learned to create exquisite French pastry, quality chocolates, and every type of bread imaginable. After attending the CFA de Muret, Christophe moved to Paris to work at Entremet de France, refining his hand-painted, one-of-a-kind creations. While his passion for fine chocolate eventually brought him to the United States, it was love that kept him here. In 2009, he married Carly, a sales rep for the chocolate company he worked for, and they formed Christophe Artisan Chocolatier-Pâtissier. Today the Paumes live in Charleston, SC, and bring their love of artisan chocolate to life with chocolates, truffles, chocolate sculptures, and custom logo chocolates.

We really like this place. The back patio is the cutest place to sit and have a visit. My sister and I felt like the macaroons we're pretty good , but not as good as Paris.

We were staying at the Renaissance hotel in Charleston. Walked out the back way and found the "French Chocolate Cafe" just a few yards away, on a back street where there are no other businesses, between King and Market. Outrageous chocolates, fabulous baked goodies (I had a cherry/pistachio tart), and a few lunch items like quiches and wraps. We sat outside in what essentially is an alleyway, but they had painted the wall "trompe l'oeil" to make you believe you are sitting on a French boulevard. What a delightful lunch! (And dessert, of course.)

Hand made, heavenly chocolate treats abound. If you enjoy chocolate in any form then this is a "must visit" spot in Charleston. There are cakes, cookies and candies galore. All made locally. Decadence at it's finest.

Stopped in here by accident; tiny building behind the Renaissance Hotel. Coffee, croissants, macaroons, and amazing chocolate. It opens early and your taste buds will thank you.
