Chocolate cherries...wonderful. Chocolate covered orange peels...delicious. 3 months later and I am still thinking of them. The best I have ever had! I wish it wasn't so expensive to ship to Canada or I would be ordering them all the time.

this is a lovely little chocolate shop on the grand place and apparently the suppliers to the royal family. The assistant was happy to give us some history and helped us with our selection. All the chocolates i got to taste were excellent.

Excellent chocolates, still hand made. First female chocolatier to be recognised by the Belgian royal family. Worth a quick look for the beauty of the place, if not the wonderful smell.
