“A chocolate extravaganza!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is a must do for anyone who considers them self even a casual lover of chocolate. I always indulge in their ice cream as it isn't offered many places. While not as cool as the location at Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco, this is a great experience. It is worth the visit even if just for the free samples.

“Yummy hot fudge sundae”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

If you're strolling along GasLamp Quarter and want to SPLURGE on some ice cream then stop here...kind of expensive but Yummy. Wouldn't bother buying chocolate here, you can buy Ghirardelli chocolate cheaper at CVS.

“Shake was fantastic”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Only ordered a shake here, but it was delicious. Would say, one of the best I have had, but definately not cheap. Ran about $10 for a large shake.

“Do you have a sweet tooth?”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

This place is for anyone who loves chocolate and/or ice cream.

They sell bags of their famous chocolate in an array of flavors or individual ones. There's ALWAYS some sort of bag special they have going. I can't eat THAT much chocolate so I get a few of the individual bars. Ice cream is a bit on the pricer side, but that's just me.

“Very good, but very pricey too”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Visited this place in San Diego for the first time. It's easy to get to, but was very crowded at the time we visited (night). Delicious ice cream, candy, etc, but very expensive for what you get.
