Fodor's Review

The sign says "Fine, Organic Artisan Chocolate," but all you need to know is that this chocolate is delicious. You can buy chocolate to go, including turtle-shaped chocolates filled with caramel and nuts, bonbons filled with ginger citrus or pistachio with Himalayan pink salt, beautifully gift-wrapped 70% dark chocolate, or truffles (including vegan-friendly rosemary-walnut and non-dairy mixed-berry, so no one has any dietary excuse to resist). You can sit down at a patio table and sip thick, hot chocolate or try a cup of spicy cacao tea. If you're in the area for a while, you can book a 2½-hour chocolate workshop held Tuesdays and Saturdays, to learn how it's made ($25, minimum of two people; two days notice required).
