Walked the main street and found this chocolate shop to be better suited to our likes than the one off the main street. We got mint chocolate squares, dark almond bark. Great stop for gifts and yourself! Friendly and quick staff!

Delicious Fudge, the white chocolate with raspberries looked amazing. Didn't try it but had a few other milk chocolates and they were all very fresh and so delicious.

Chocolate is like a magnet, it draws you into the chocolate house from Main Street. I have been here a few times and I've found its a great place to stop after stopping everywhere else on Main St. Being diabetic usually limits my choices of...More

Have been here several times and the sweets have always been tasty, fresh, and the perfect sweet fix. Favorites are sea salt chocolate caramel (dark and milk chocolate), mint chocolate bars, anything with peanut butter, and maybe the best of all - plain fudge (no...More

Wonderful chocolate and caramel apple. Staff wasn't outright rude but definitely not engaged with their customers. That's why the lower rating. Seems that they're the exception as we had friendly service everywhere else.

A small building that had a good choice of chocolates and fudge. The person that helped was friendly. The place was clean and inviting.

The owners wife is so rude to customers. He really should keep her out of the customer service side. She is mean. Hates people, especially tourists, but without them she would be poor. She needs to learn some courtesy.
