Great stop for (mostly chocolate) gifts to take home and a nice cafe next door with plenty of sweet and savoury options - and great gelato. Friendly staff who greet you with a couple of samples and are happy to provide more if you're interested in something in particular. Their Macadamia butter toffee crunch is amazing.

Great stop for coffee, cake and ice cream and wonderful to see lots of gluten-free options. Toilets are really clean and there is a nice seating area outside. There is also n amazing chocolate shop next door and we got free samples when we arrived...yummy. Fun to watch them making the chocolate and hard not to purchase some chocolate on the way out to enjoy later on.

A lovely small specialty shop of chocolate fabulousness! A sample at the door assures you aren’t leaving without more. Watch the painstaking craftsmanship of making their chocolate through the glass wall of windows. And then shop til you drop gathering awesome chocolate. Down side...i don’t think i can get anymore in the USA!

Stopped for a coffee great selection of cakes. Galeto section was very busy. The chocolate factory is reasonable when you see them being hand crafted and decorated very time consuming and skilful.
