Chocolate Bars

We’re pretty sure we have the largest selection of fine quality chocolate bars in the city. No joke. At last count we had 200  and most of those bars are made bean to bar. So many that we couldn’t fit them all in the photo. Giving a selection of bars is so easy!  Pick what you like and and we’ll gift wrap for you. Bars range from $5 to $20.

And there are the special bars for the holidays…
