Such a fun place with delicious chocolate. Offered everyone hot chocolate samples when we came in. Gave us a “tour” of the truffles. Everything was amazing and a great atmosphere in what was once a soda fountain.

What a darling shoppe. Like going back in town, you can cozy up to the bar and get your favorite cup of Hot Chocolate! There are various chocolates available as well. Perfect for a cold day!

Stopped in to purchase a small gift of appreciation... While there, I was offered a sample of their drinking chocolate. Fantastical! I bought a 9-piece box of truffles for $26 (give or take) which seemed a little pricey, but the quality is exceptional. They do...More
