Although my visit was in the off season, the shop was open and I was warmly greeted on arrival. The shelves are filled with all kinds of chocolate treats as well as a large selection of mid-eastern items that would make ideal gifts. This should be a definite stop when visiting Lubec and I can't imagine stopping here and not... More

This is one of our few must stops when Downeast. Love to stop in to visit with chatty Monica about her Peruvian chocolates. Hard to say which one is our favorite: dark chocolate dipped apricots, Bourbon truffles, sea urchins, Bon Bons, the list goes on... Second favorite thing at Monica's is the handcrafted earrings from Peru. Under $20 for a... More

Any trip to Lubec involves a stop at Monica's Chocolates. There is such a variety to choose from and it's all made on the premises so it couldn't be fresher. Monica also has a large selection of clothing and jewelry that are priced very reasonably. The shop is right on Rt. 189 so it's easy to find.

Monica's chocolates are fine; some of the best I've had. Her hot chocolate is divine! One of her employees told us it takes 3 hours to make. It's the best we've had since Paris: thick, creamy, rich, and flavored with mild spices. It is not to be missed!

Thank you for your business and leaving a review, arecibo2. That's correct! It takes three hours of near-constant stirring to make our delicious, special hot chocolate. Warm Regards, Monica's Chocolates More

Wow, who expected world class chocolate goodies in far eastern Maine? This is a do not miss. Only downside is that they do not segregate peanut items. Creative jewelry is also offered for sale at really low prices.

Thank you for leaving a review, Dave40827. We do make milk and dark chocolate that has not been exposed to any nuts, but it won't be found in the shop. We keep it in a "safe bin" in the basement, where we make our chocolates. Please feel free to contact us if you're interested in peanut-free chocolate. Kind Regards, Monica's... More

Stopped to purchase a few chocolates. They offered several samples, and we were immediately sold. The prices are not cheap, but much better than Godiva, or anything else that I have ever tasted. She also sells some beautiful alpaca clothing from Peru
