Cool little chocolate shop where you can watch the confection goodies being made. 4 truffles for about $10. Worth every penny.

I know that there are a couple more famous chocolate shops in town, but don't miss this place on Broadway. The folks that work there are super friendly and their chocolate is on par with any of the others. And you don't have to stand...More

I could live here. Amazing dark chocolates, perfect gelato. Pumpkin spice gelato was great. I am dreaming of the Mexican truffle. Nothing more to say.

I could not get over how much I loved the cilantro lime jalapeño gelato! Probably the best gelato I've ever had. They also have more traditional flavors as well. And tons of intricately made chocolates!
