Although we're disappointed that the business has been moved across the street, we always stop at Wilbur's to get their Buds each time we're in the area. They're chocolate is so smooth, so delicious. A fun place to visit.

While the old shop across the street was just a shop and not a tour it was still much better than this new one. The old one at least had character, the new one is just a box. Also the older one had a lot...More

Wilbur's new location across the street from the original place makes parking so much easier! It's a quaint shop where you can see sweet little ladies make chocolate behind a huge glass window. I'm a major chocolate snob so when I tell you this is...More
