“A chocolatiere with grace & intelligence”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

This place features unique and delicious chocolate truffles. The store is very small, but owned & run by a real gentlemen who arranges his sales with graciousness. Try as many varieties as you can, for they all have their special quality. Chocolate lovers won't be disappointed and neither will their skeptical non-fanatic friends.

“BEST salted caramels ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

What more can I say? All of their chocolates are interesting and much more flavorful than any others I have had. It's my go-to gift place.

“Your sweets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

A hand-crafted chocolate truffle haven that competes with any in the big cities. You can pick from boozy flavors (like Myers, tequila lime), Maine (maple, Maine sea salt among others), spicy and fruity.

“A must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013

We went on the Maine Foodie walking tour and had his version of the needham truffle. I bought 4 to bring home for my family to try. It is the kind of thing that makes you just smile and say perfection!!!
