It’s a very interesting place and unique , when you enter the store , you can feel the athmosphere of chocolate so strong. The Hot chocolate is really delicious and try their chocolate dessert , it’s really good. A must visit store while in SF

This is real chocolate. And next door to the real cheese shop. I had a dessert flight and the quality and taste are unmatched by any chocolate store/shop/restaurant I have ever visited. The homemade smores are fantastic and I don't like smores.
