We grabbed a few organic chocolates to take home for gifts. Super tasty stuff. The downtown store was busy and staff were friendly.

We just stopped for ice-cream here, and it was absolutely terrific. I had chocolate hazelnut, and it was delicious. Their ice-cream is freshly made, locally, with natural ingredients. The staff is super-friendly.

Stopped in the Church Street store on a drizzly Sunday morning while visiting Burlington. Cases of goodies and mouth-watering chocolate aromas greeted us the moment my spouse and I stepped through the door.
