They're super friendly and have great chocolate. I've had their truffles, which are great, and their tea, which is prepared carefully, and their hot chocolate, which is really rich and served at just the right temperature to enjoy especially on a cold night in front of the store at their outside seating. They also have cookies which are kind of not their best item but as cookies go are pretty good. They don't have a lot of seats inside so it's kind of cramped if you bring more than two people or there's already a few people and you're trying to seat two. GooglePlace - December 2017

Small shop with giant chocolate bites of flavor... Wonderful place to buy gifts for someone who appreciates chocolate. GooglePlace - October 2017

Whenever I take coworkers out for a coffee chat, this is the place I will suggest unless it's really hot outside. If my friends at work have had a bad day and need fancy hot chocolate to at least have that, then we must go here. Their lovely beverages, tasty chocolate samples, and room full of alpacas is delightful. If you're getting a drink, be sure to ask for one of their fancy marshmallows! It can be added to anything - last time I got a matcha latte and yes, of course, marshmallow was the first thing I asked about. I usually go in the late afternoon so there aren't as many tasty pastries (good for me), but they always have a selection of their signature chocolates and other fancy candies from other places displayed on their counters. There's always water in the corner next to the ice cream freezer (in case you find you want something cold). The chairs are nice and comfy if you can snag one of them. Overall, a lovely place that I recommend to folks I work with since it's so closeby. GooglePlace - September 2017

I had been trying to stop by this cute Chocolatier & Barista for some time, but my schedule just never worked out. I had heard a lot of great things about their hot chocolate. Finally one day when I walked by they were open on my schedule. I ordered a hot chocolate and with the first sip I felt as if I was in heaven. They also sell chocolates and have classes on how to make chocolates. Their mascot is a cute alpaca and the interior makes you feel as if you are cozy and home. GooglePlace - August 2017

Amazing coffee and chocolates. I've never had a "truffagato" but it was incredible. Espresso poured over a dark chocolate truffle. Highly recommend this place to anyone who wants fantastic coffee. GooglePlace - July 2017
