We had gone to a restaurant to eat on our way through Laguna Beach when we saw the chocolate strawberries sign. Great ambience and wonderful staff that will do what they can to give you what you want. The chocolate was amazing. I recommend to stop in and visit.

The food was not so good, I had read the ratings and found the place to be overrated, service was not good and for what they offered it was over priced

This is definitely the best chocolate place I've been to in a long time! Amazing chocolates especially the pink Himalayan sea salt caramels. I tried a caramel while while walking around town and had to go back and get some more to keep at home. It was like being a kid in a candy store again. A MUST!

Cute small chocolate shop! They have so many different things to choose from. Brought some special items for gifts. Little sand dollars wrapped in a cute clear bag with a ribbon and graham cracker crumbs to look at sand only $3 and a large chocolate Star fish done the same way for only $9, it was a lot of chocolate!...

Went in search of this place to get chocolate for the hubbies birthday (chocolate is a required component) Not sure I would have found this place without a map, but I am glad we did find it! Sooooo good!!! We tried quite a few things but the chocolate peanut butter cup and chocolate nut clusters (milk and dark) were all... More

I took some of this chocolate to Belgium on my trip specifically to compare against fine Belgian chocolate. I actually thought LaRue chocolate was at least as good as that found at the finest chocolatiers in Brussels. Such a nice treat after dinner, and no travel to Europe required.

Description
Chocolatiers - This unassuming, charming chocolatier can be found right on PCH, but is tucked away in a tiny shopping village called Peppertree Lane. I've been here twice and was impressed by the quality of their chocolates. Their staff is kind, incredibly helpful and patient.
