Great place to stop and sit and have a cup of chocolate, or a latte, or tea or a truffle. Open space convenient to visit with friends or to sit awhile and ponder where you are going to eat next! A bit slow with taking...More

This is a decedent stop with so many great things to try. It makes a perfect late night hang out to please that sweet tooth. There is often a line, but it moves fast and it is well worth the wait. Do it!
