  • This is actually two places in one. The chocolate shop and factory has absolutely amazing chocolate, especially the chocolate covered toffee and the pinot noir truffles. The chocolate is expensive, but they give out free samples when you come into the shop so you can decide for yourself if its worth the splurge. We'd give the chocolate boutique five stars. The chocolate cafe was good but we probably won't go back. The treats we had were just too rich for our tastes. The coffee was pretty good. Pleasant interior. We'd give this three stars. For both we'll compromise at 4.
  • Visited the cafe today for the first time and we were very disappointed. We chose our items from the cabinet and placed our order. The food prices are expensive but it was a special treat. As it was Mothers' Day and quite busy, we expected to wait a while. However, after 3/4 hour nothing had appeared. Other customers who came in after us were receiving their orders and we queried this with a passing waitress. It turns out we had been forgotten. Next, I was advised that my choice was no longer available as it had been sold to someone else! We were appalled at the standard of service but they did give us a refund when we asked to cancel our order. Advice to prospective patrons would be to wait until they have their "trainer wheels off" and can run their operation smoothly!
  • Omg you have to stop here . So gooooooood
  • A little pricey, but not bad for a boutique factory. Everything is made on site and as soon as you walk through the doors you are assaulted with the delicious scents of chocolate. Nearly everything is gluten-free, which was a fantastic find for myself. They also had a sizeable selection of sugar-free items, great for diabetics in the family. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, helping my husband and I find appropriate gifts for our family.
  • Yum..good for a stop in for a sweet fix
