Bon Appetit!


What a treat! Our friends who live locally introduced us to this shop. The balsamic caramel chocolate was my absolute favorite! What are unique idea! The coconut white chocolate truffle was also excellent! Also enjoyed the Salted cardamom truffle but did not order that on my second trip back in. Also enjoyed the boysenberry filled chocolate. Nice to try flavors that are not as common and a larger chains. Definitely would recommend anyone to pop in here!
