  • Such an old school chocolate store. Really enjoyed the ambience, smell, and quality of the chocolates here. So worth it come check them out

For hostess gifts a box of the chocolate break up is always a hit. And their holiday themed items, including giant Easter bunnies, goblins, and Santa’s, are the stuff of dreams for kids of all ages and make amazing table decorations.
