Overview

Li-Lac Chocolates, Manhattan’s oldest chocolate house, has been a West Village icon since 1923. For the past 90 years, Li-Lac has continued to make old-world chocolates in small batches using time-honored techniques, original recipes and the finest ingredients.Every delicious item is hand-made locally in New York City and guaranteed for freshness. All the signature recipes used today were created by Li-Lac's founder, George Demetrious, in the 1920's. His recipes, production methods and chocolate-loving spirit have been passed down through three generations.From almond bark to French mint bars, kiddie pops to truffles, we have something for every chocolate lover. For that special someone, Li-Lac has several indulgent gift boxes available and gift certificates starting at $25. If you’re not able to stop by our stores, we offer hand-delivery within Manhattan and UPS shipping to all destinations.

We bought the dark chocolate and it is divine. Costs a lot for us but largely due to the bad value of the pound vs the dollar. Still well worth it. One of the best chocolates I have had and trust me I have had...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
