The chocolates from Harlans was tasty. They have a large selection of chocolates that you can buy singly or assorted boxes are also available. They also have bars and half bars. A little pricier than what I would expect (the half bars were 5.25 each)...More

My sister in law ordered 3 ice cream cakes for my nephews birthday from Harlans and they were amazing. I have been to this place a few times and absolutely loved it. Xx

Not the same without the former owner but it's still good. Happy to no longer see styrofoam containers but very glad I can still get two flavours in one take home container. Friendly staff. Yummy gelato.

Big selection of house made chocolates. Something will suit your taste. Peanut Butter Cups were good. Gelato was good. I tried salted caramel and coconut bounty. Worth a stop after farmers market.
