“A little piece of heaven”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We stopped at Monica's Chocolates on our way back to our motel (Eastland) from our visit to West Quoddy Head Light. We were overwhelmed by the choices and quality. As soon as we walked in the door, a staff member came right over to tell us about the candy, the ingredients (all fresh) and gave us several samples. The shop also carries local Maine products (jams/jellies, mustard from Eastport, etc.) and Peruvian products. We visited in July, so we didn't purchase a lot of candy (Maine was in the middle of a heat wave but we bought a box of cashew turtles (milk chocolate although there were dark and white chocolate turtles with different kinds of nuts) which we had as dessert the two nights we were in Lubec. We plan to order candy as soon as September arrives!

“We will be back!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We stopped here on the way through lubec and are so glad we did! We were immediately greeted by a pleasant young lady who offered us some samples of chocolate, local mustards and jams. All the chocolates are made with natural ingredients. Nothing artificial. Yummy. Monica was also present and had lots to offer our 14 month old to keep her entertained (balloons and alpaca finger puppets) while we shopped. She was very knowledgable and willing to share lots of info about her products. As any good shop keeper should do. We loved this shop and will definitely be back on our next journey through Lubec!

“What a busy lady!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

The owner certainly takes a personal interest in her customers. She talked with us about the chocolate making process and took us to see how her chocolates are made. We had delicious samples. The other food products were interesting, too. Also a beautiful selection of Peruvian jewelry and knit goods.

“Monica's Chocolates, Lubec, ME 2012”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

This was right across from the campground we were staying in which was amazing ( Sunset Point Campground). We ventured over and were amazed. All of us (Except my dad) were like, Ohmygod chocolate! This is high quality stuff and Monica is so good and what she does. Try everything, it's so worth it! :)

“almost missed it”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Located in a converted house with only a small sign on the Hwy,it would be easy to miss. Monica makes some of the best chocolate I have ever tasted. We bought variations of white and dark chocolate clusters and a variety of Truffles. In addition to the fine chocolate and assorted products this shop has great jewelry at really fair prices. They also have sweaters and my wife bought one of these.
