Best hot chocolate in town! I have lived in the area for almost a year and finally visited this store when I had family in town. My family member got a lemon bar and he loved it!

Cute cheese shop. As you can imagine it's pretty expensive but it does have a nice selection of cheeses and sweet treats. They do have an olive oil and vinegar sample area where you can purchase after you find something you like.
