the chocolatier specializes in handmade chocolate truffles that are to die for. They're pricey but it doesn't matter because you only need one to be transported. The care that is put into crafting these chocolates and the business in general is very clear.

This is my 2nd review and I still LOVE the chocolate and the owner. We stop every time we are in the area. Chocolate is made there and is delicious and worth the price.

Kate, the owner, was extremely pleasant and personable. She runs the place herself, and makes everything in-house. Her variety is good, and her quality is peerless. I got a variety box, a few chocolate bars, and two bags of chocolate toffee, which is amazing. The...More

We hoped you enjoyed your chocolates, especially the chocolate buttercrunch (toffee), which we also love to eat (it is like potato chips--can't eat just one!). Thanks for the nice review, too.
