“Very Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

They have the best chocolate creme brulee. The chocolates and truffles are also good but I come here just for the brulee .

“A chocoholic's heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

Absolutely don't miss this place, and don't pass up the drinking chocolates. Try to go during the week or you will wait in line - there was a line out the door for several hours mid-day on Saturday. Luckily we happened upon this place on a Friday and didn't wait more than two minutes. In addition to the ganache-based drinking chocolates, we bought several chocolate bars and some absolutely to-die-for truffles. Love the fact that the couple who started this place has a "hands-on" style of business, from owning the cacao bean plantation in Costa Rica, to the factory where they make and then wrap the chocolates. Small-batch, high quality and absolutely yummy!

“Eclectic and interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Swung by for desert. Don't know the area very well but assume its in an arts district as most of the patrons, employees were very artsy. Not a negative - just an observation. Tried several desserts between the three of us and all were very good. Can't go wrong if you have a sweet tooth or just a hankering for some good cake, chocolate and a beverage to wash it down.
