“An insane level of attention to detail - you can taste the different regions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

This is not a restaurant but a chocolate maker. Great place for a quick hot chocolate and chocolate pick me up. Try the samples and you can really tell the difference of the flavors from different regions. They are quite expensive, but if you look at the process it is not completely unreasonable.

We had a tour as something we won from a school auction. Worth looking into how they do that normally as it was great fun. They focus very closely on quality of beans and do a great deal of testing throughout the process. was also impressed at how they are trying to work with different farms to help control quality from start to finish.

“A "sweet" place in the heart of Mission”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Dandelion Chocolate was the "sweetest" experience in Mission; the place is great; it is a small traditional chocolate factory, with friendly stuff.They have tips about how you can really enjoy eating a chocolate, and also some great products.
We had the S'more - marshmallow, graham and chocolate and it was yummy.
Hope to be here again!Great feelings at this small factory!

“Mmmmm!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

Yummy hot chocolate!
First one "mission hot chocolate" was very cinnamon-y and slightly overpowering..think it's an acquired taste. The staff were so friendly and helpful, swapped for a house hot chocolate without having to ask!
Looking forward to trying more and different types of chocolate next time!

“Fab Little Chocolate Spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

Fabulous artisanal chocolate shop in the Mission! They have little nibs of their single source chocolate in bowls to sample which is a great way to figure out which you prefer! Very good chocolates and cookies as well. I particularly enjoyed the Camino Verde variety from Ecuador. My companion raved about the Nutella cookie! Very pretty shop.
