Ghirardelli Square Reviews
チョコレート工場のような機械は見たほうがよい。おすすめの味は断然キャラメル。ミルクチョコレートがおいしい。ダークは結構苦目ではある more »It should be seen like the chocolate factory machinery. Featured flavor is by far the most caramel. Delicious milk chocolate. It is dark, bitter eyes
El olor, los sabores, las texturas y un lugar emblemático; esto y más te ofrece este lugar ... Además de un cálido lugar donde degustar un increíble chocolate ... Lo amo more »The odor, flavors, textures and a landmark; This and more offers here... In addition to a warm place where to taste an incredible chocolate... I love him
One of my favorite things in the world is chocolate so I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. I was greeted with a complimentary milk chocolate and caramel square and then I walked around and saw fresh chocolate being made. I was chilly so I ordered a hot chocolate and it was the most delicious hot chocolate I have ever had. I also got a cookie but the drink was so filling I couldn’t even eat it. I loved the mermaid statue in the square as well as the corn hole games the kids seemed to be enjoying.
The double Ghirardelli shops are busy, chocolaty fun. Breathe in the sweet air. Order something from the awesome chocolate bar. Other interesting spots include Yap, with its variety of quality (and actually comfortable) pet accessories, and the pretty mermaid fountain. Great views of the wharf and harbor from some spots. Parking in the underground garage is simplest, but small vehicles rule in the tiny passages, and it's not cheap, even with validation.
