They offer a wide selection of fresh made chocolate items. This is supposed to be where Forrest Gump got his box of chocolates before sitting on the bench. The prices are somewhat high but considering location and the type of business, this is probably the norm. Everything we purchased was very good.

I'd heard good things and popped in while in town for the morning! I enjoyed a few pieces of chocolates which were delicious and great prices! Cute place

Now this is what I'm talking about! A confectioners delight and a chocolate lovers dream. I feel like I died and went to heaven in this place. The ladies behind the counter were lovely as I strolled the store and looked at all the awesome chocolate and candies on display. I could've bought one of everything and been happier than... More

Is store is a few blocks off Bay Street but it is worth it. It is wonderful to walk in and smell chocolate. We got a half pound of truffles, two chocolate strawberries and some Easter candy...the strawberries were divine...can't wait to try the rest! All the chocolates were reasonably priced.

During my kids Spring Break we walked around downtown Beaufort and hit up several stores. A must is The Chocolate Tree. Great select of chocolate. They were making chocolate covered strawberries, very cool to watch. A little pricey but it's all handmade goodies! Only downside is it's a small store and gets crowded.

The chocolate tree is a staple amongst beaufortonians and visitors alike. They have been around forever and you can always count on them for good quality, fresh, homemade chocolates, truffles, and assorted chocolate delicacies. Do not miss out on one of beauforts gems. They have other candies for people who don't like chocolate (if there is such a thing). Go!!

Its smaller than some of the candy shops we have been to. However this is a little family owned chocolate shop that has a lot of charm. We had a few pieces and they were really good. Everyone was very polite and nice too. Great place to stop for a sweet tooth.
