Review from March 2011:
I stopped in for a light dinner and dessert, only to learn that they no longer serve food, which was a bit disappointing. I got a number of chocolate bars - high-end candy bars, I suppose - which were fantastic. The candy bars run around $7 each, which isn't too bad given the size of the bar. My favorite was the "Butterfinger bar", which tasted exactly like a Butterfinger (at least my memory of a Butterfinger, which I have admittedly not had in at least 7 years!). :)
I'm disappointed they no longer serve food but I suppose that was never their forte. It's a cute little dessert shop, perfect to stop in for a quick piece of chocolate or something to go.
Review from August 2010:
I took my mom here last week while she was in town and we both really enjoyed it. As we hadn't had dinner yet, we started out with two savory options, the nut cheese platter and the quiche of the day. The quiche of the day was spinach and it had a very good flavor and crust. It also came with some plain sweet potato chips and was very good. This plate was $11 and I think it was a decent deal. The nut cheese platter was about $13 and it came with a nut pate with a good flavor and a hummus-consistency and a nut cheese that had a very deep, almost pungent flavor that tasted somewhat like wine. I didn't care for this cheese but my mom enjoyed it. The dish was artfully prepared, with the slices of the nut cheese interspersed among sliced strawberries, but I think it was fairly pricey given the price. Both dishes served as appetizers.
For dessert, we decided on a make-your-own platter and chose the praline pecan (which had a delicious flavor but was very grainy), the almond toffee (which was fantastic), the raspberry fruit pate (which was good, kind of like a big gum drop), cranberry-orange bark (which was also good, but I felt it was too soft to be bark and I personally didn't care for the cranberry-chocolate mixture)), and the apricot carmel (which I felt had a great apricot carmel flavor and a great chocolate flavor, but I didn't care for the two tastes when combined).
Overall, the chocolates were well prepared and there is tremendous variety but they are quite small. My mother also noticed that it would likely be cheaper to order chocolates independently, as many of the sweets are 75 cents to $1.50, but for some reason, a platter of 5 is $13, which was really disappointing and I feel somewhat dishonest.
The ambiance was nice and we were happy to get a table on a busy Friday night. The service was friendly, but I feel it was just a little slow and I think the waiter was trying a bit too hard to be friendly and connect with us as customers. Either way, I would go back in the future, but probably just for dessert, which I plan on ordering as independent items, vs. the platter.
