Wonderful chocolate and caramel apple. Staff wasn't outright rude but definitely not engaged with their customers. That's why the lower rating. Seems that they're the exception as we had friendly service everywhere else.

A small building that had a good choice of chocolates and fudge. The person that helped was friendly. The place was clean and inviting.

The owners wife is so rude to customers. He really should keep her out of the customer service side. She is mean. Hates people, especially tourists, but without them she would be poor. She needs to learn some courtesy.

The teenagers serving were probably the most miserable staff we've seen in a long time... they didn't even smile. Come on guys - at least make an effort... Chocolate was excellent - salted caramel was yummy! :-)
