There really isn't much to this place although some interesting things didn't really spend much time in here as we were part of a large group so felt a little pinched. Interesting though so worth a quick ramble.

This is a fairly small shop. There are some displays on the walls and a little cafe area in back. You can purchase chocolate shampoo, conditioner, body soap. They sell chocolate tea and other items.

I had a great experience doing the 2 hour chocolate-making workshop. Angelo, the expert, was great and gave lots of information and I can say it was a wonderful learning experience. I highly recommend this workshop.
