Stopped here after lunch; well worth the gamble with GREAT chocolate, ice cream, homemade chocolate bars, bonbons, etc. Very tough to make a decision. Plenty of wait staff and very cordial. Can eat inside or outside on the walkway or have it to go. Highly...More

Mink has a delicious and unique selection of chocolates. Best of all though is their hot chocolate, styled along Mexican hot chocolate. Grab a cup, even on a hot day, and sit at one of the outside tables in the plaza. Life doesn't get better.

Bought some chocholate bars for dessert. The dark chocholate was a bit waxy without a strong flavor.Service in the store was fine.pricecy for the small bars on offer.

Mink chocolate may be a little pricey, but it's well worth the trip. If you are lucky enough to visit make sure to have the S'more and the drinkable chocolate. They are both awesome. The cafe is quite clean and beautiful. Love this place!

If you enjoy coffee drinks complemented by something delicious, go to Mink. Sit outside and enjoy the view or inside and relax in an unself consciously quiet interior.
