The chocolate section has dark, milk and white chocolates. Great for gifts as you can get chocolate shaped like fish, lego characters , wrenches, sewing... More

If you're in the area and want some chocolate, you gotta try this place. I went in and couldn't decide what to get, and the staff were great with helping me figure out which truffles I had to try.

Hard to beat the quality of their products. I love chocolate and they have a big variety and they're so good. I go there quite often. I have also had their bread, cakes and other treats. Never had anything there that wasn't great.

Without doubt the best chocolate store I've ever been in and that includes Lady Godiva in New York City. Thirty seven bucks a pound and worth every dollar. Just fabulous!
