Stopped in for a little dessert after dinner. We had coffee ice-cream with Cocoa nibs and brownies. Both were sumptuously delicious! They offer hot chocolate and coffee drinks as well as a variety of chocolates, cake, cookies and ice-cream. This place is pure happiness!

The lavender truffles are magical! They supply The Windsor with the chocolates that they leave on the pillows. I did try a few other chocolate pieces and they were wonderful also!
