  • A chocolate addicts heaven. Now caters for gluten free and sugar free people. Great.
  • Really enjoyed the homely atmosphere which includes many reminders of family run local business. Several rooms allow employees to demonstrate the manufacturing and finishing of their product. The area is busy and packed with goodies, accessories as well as seconds 'slightly' visually defective goods for 50% off (tastes the same though!)
  • A hidden gem nestled in the Adelaide hills. Quality chocolate at its best. Wonderfull collection of all your favourites. Added bonus of the cheese factory right next door.
  • Fantastic place to visit and to spend money. Never leave there empty handed, always have a buy up of things you rarely see now
