Wow, this cozy little shop has multiple types of my favorite chocolate with chilis. It's a chocolate lover's fantasy come true. All reasonably priced. The service is helpful and friendly. A lovely respite if you're tired of the hot pavement outside.

Came here to buy part of a Christmas gift for a family membe. They have really unique items. They even had a section of stuff made in Virginia. It was a little pricey, but still worth it. I love chocolate!
