Stopped in one afternoon while strolling Main Street. Looked around and asked help from the only woman sales help in the store. It was a chore for her to help us and she acted as though she was going out of her way to answer a stupid question. When we finally made a purchase, she did us the favor of... More

Chocolate. Need I say more? Actually, yes. Because you could come here every day for a month and get a different delectable morsel of chocolate goodness.

This little chocolate shop is charming and the chocolates are devine! If you are looking for something special and sweet this shop has you covered, the owner is very personable their truffle displays are beyond enticing. My kids each enjoyed a truffle and a Coke in an old-fashioned glass bottle.

An abundance of truffles. They are lovely, although somewhat pricey. I would like to have seen a larger variety of chocolate, not just truffles.

Variety of treats. Marshmallow chocolate pecan cluster and sea salt caramel was yummy! Many options, right on Main Street. Plan to go back in the fall for the Pumpkin Crunch popcorn.

Beauifully maintained store. Wonderful to browse through but not all that great when it comes to the chocolate selections. Main Street needs a place with high-end chocolates and I hope this place makes it happen. It could use some higher quality goods, but we will continue to support it.
