Excellent service and truly excellent chocolate. Located on the historic Dahlonega square. A great place to sample fine chocolate creations.

Their chocolate is super creamy and delicious. They have quite a few different things they serve that you wouldn't see anywhere else. I feel like the prices are a bit high but nothing out of the ordinary for any other specialty chocolate place we have visited.

Dear Kayla, Thank you for taking the time to give a shout out about Paul Thomas Chocolates. Did you enjoy our truffles or peanut butter delights? And yes quality does come with a price. So we select only the finest cocoa beans and have them blended for our shop and even whole pecans and whole almonds and sweet cream butter.... More

Love their candies and walking into the place just to smell the candies. Their chocolates are amazing. Even have a chocolate covered bacon for the carnivores.

Cute little shop. Samples were gone so ordered without tasting. We were not disappointed. The chocolate covered cherries were delicious. Truffles were very good. White chocolate selection was slim but delicious. Purchased for after dinner but the selections were gone before we arrived home. Yummy!

Debbie, So glad you were pleased with your selection. It's been a very busy season for Paul Thomas Chocolates and though we were out of a few items, the other 80 plus delicious chocolate morsels filled the showcase. Did you select the Blueberry Truffle? We brought it back to the showcase this week. Just out of curiosity what white chocolate... More

Not at all impressed with this candy store. Inside very cramped and stuffy. Understaffed and overpriced for the quality of the chocolates. Nothing to write home about. Hansel and Gretel in Helen is better quality and better prices.

Dear Mrs. Coleman, So sorry you did not enjoy your time at Paul Thomas Chocolates but hope you'll visit again. During the holiday season our store is very packed with goodies to purchase as gifts or for personal consumption, so it may have seemed a little cramped. With half of our store as the kitchen the retail side is narrow... More

Yum is right. Our hot cocoa is so very rich and chocolaty but not too sweet. Also we now have a hot cocoa called Toffee Coffee. Part hot cocoa with a touch of coffee. So be sure and give it a try when you are out and about our beautiful town. More

Amazing chocolates, wow! I literally turned into a kid in a candy store. I couldn't wait to get my paws on all of my chocolate treats. Delicious, moderately priced for the excellent quality you get.

There is a reason this place is the #1 restaurant in Dahlonega. We are from Indiana and my daughter and I were spending the day in Dahlonega while my husband was running a trail race.
