Kee and her chocolates are just the best! We ordered a unique selection of flavors for our daughter for her birthday. Due to COVID, Miss Kee has been working nonstop to stay in business and does everything herself. She hand-delivered the chocolates to our daughter! Our daughter has been swooning over these chocolates ever since receiving them and declares them the best in all of Manhattan! – Ann McNeil

Love this place. Kind of nowhere for a normal visit since it’s in the middle of the office building area of the West Village and out of way from all the shops but you can smell fresh chocolate even before entering the store. – Chico Kim

I love Li-Lac and the service at this location is excellent. If you check in on yelp you get a delicious chocolate bar that they give you a couple of options to choose from. My friend loved the chocolate gift I got him so if you’re looking to buy a gift this is the spot. I got myself this caramel bar holy…. the caramel at this place is ridiculous I would opt for something with caramel in it. – Marlena K.
MarieBelle is famous for its beautiful handcrafted pieces of art. Their chocolate collection looks so good that you’ll have second thoughts if you’d eat it or just stare at it for hours on end (and take a bunch of Instagram photos). Their tiny chocolate ganache is like a little gourmet tile, handmade, and oh so edible.
Aside from their chocolate masterpieces, MarieBelle is also known for having arguably one of the most beautiful chocolate stores around. The interior of their store feels like you’re in a Viennese Palace.
