“Awesome little chocolate shop with incredibly high-quality chocolate. They use single-origin fair-trade cacao from Ghana. The shop owner was incredibly kind and helped us pick out chocolate to bring to a group of people as a thank you. She knew all the notes in the chocolate and was more than happy to provide us with free samples! They have white chocolate and milk chocolate and various assortments of dark chocolate ranging from 60% – to 100%. It was a very professionally run establishment incredibly clean and a very informative place to visit.
