It's a nice, clean shop. We went on Sat 2/16/08 and there 4 people there to help customers, no Christopher Elbow. I overheard he'll be there Mon.
They don't give out samples. His chocolates are hella pretty.
I got a 16 piece box for $32 and I picked all my own pieces. You can also get a pre-made box, but that's no fun.
2 pc box $5
4 pc box $10
9 pc box $20
16 pc box $32
21 pc box $40
Tried so far: Caramel w/ Fleur De Sel; Persian; Caramel w/ strawberry balsamic; Raspberry. Raspberry is my favorite so far.
Credit cards taken.
Drinking chocolate menu $4.5 a cup. 14 different kinds to choose from.
Nice lounge area to sit & relax. Magazines available to read.
One unisex bathroom to use.
