Stopped in for an afternoon treat with friends. Lady helping us was very personable and offered us samples of the gelato. The small cup of SF raspberry gelato was very enjoyable. Also picked up a small sampling of the dark chocolate covered coffee beans. My friends and I all left with a treat of our choice and enjoyed them on... More

We got two bonbons from our Airbnb host, and decided that we had to visit this store--the bonbons were too good to ignore. We bought a box of bonbons and 6 dark chocolates (the ones that were round-ish). We loved all of them! The dark chocolates and dark bonbons were heavenly. Will definitely come back next time we are in... More

Their chocolates are exceptional, but a bit pricey. Sometimes you just have to indulge yourself...it's worth the $$

We love Stam's gelato and some of their chocolates. The gelato is lovely, dense and flavorful. Try a medium size with two of the cream based flavors like a chocolate and a nut flavor or two of the fruit flavors without dairy. I personally find their chocolates a bit too structured although I like their marzipan chocolates and a few... More

What can I say some of the best chocolate I have ever had! Smooth hand crafted excellence right here in Iowa. The store is absolutely elegant and the owners and staff are just outstanding! If you have someone who is hard to buy gifts for you will find something for them from gormet coffee infused with their chocolate to their... More

If chocolate is your passion and desire, be sure to try this friendly go to place on Ingersoll. You will not be disappointed with the hot chocolate, the coffee, or any of the delicious candy offerings.

This place is fantastic with great selections of chocolates and gelato. In front is a nice sitting area to enjoy coffee or teas with your selection of sweets. In addition to chocolate choices they do have other sweet selections as well as a few no sugar chocolate selections. Enjoy !!

It feels looks and smells different when you walk in. Rich, European, colorful, friendly. I could live in here. It's like the shop in the original Willy Wonka movie only warmer and richer. The chocolate is fresh, no crappy chemicals. It tastes like butter cocoa cream and a touch of magic. They have super good gelato too and wine. My... More
