When in Franschhoek, this is the place to visit for chocolate, presentation boxes full of variety as presents to take home. Excellent chocolate, you pay for what you get and good, friendly service.

When your friends or family members hear you are going to Franschhoek they say bring chocolates. It was a busy Saturday morning and there were a few people outside buying, I think, dipped marshmallows. I was on a mission to buy my own wine filled...More

Coming from Switzerland, we know a bit about chocolate, so we decided to check it. They dont make chocolate in Franshoek, they simply import from Belgium, mix and mould it. But you should go for the demo. Jermaine is a real showman, funny, dynamic, you...More

This is a beautiful shop selling quality chocolates you can buy gift boxes or individual chocolates. The taste of each chocolate is true to its name and flavour. If you love good quality chocolates this is a must visit.

For us, a fabulous chocolate must have a flavour you can taste. We found these to be true to their name and no one element overwhelming. We are going back tomorrow to buy a selection for friends and family; and more for us too!
