I loved the dark chocolate with sea salt and dark chocolate with orange that I bought here! A little bit pricey, about 9.80 francs for 100g of slab chocolate, but absolutely worth it and worth the trek uphill to get it!

Superb handmade chocolates - among the best I have ever tasted. Very pleasant staff willing to provide useful recommendations and then efficiently wrap your purchase. The long line of locals provided further proof of this chocolatier's popularity.
