Chocolate was amazing! Give a nice size tasting. Friendly staff and it was really cool to see the chocolate actually being made. Definitely ordering more chocolate online!!

Small place, but they are generous with the samples (which taste great). Cafe is excellent, and the view is amazing. Well worth the stop if you’re going through the area.
