 Our Happy Customers


 "This is as good as it gets; you won't find better tasting/quality chocolate anywhere else. I lived in Europe for a few years, and I'd rate this place above the chocolatiers I frequented over there. Seriously, this place is amazing. We are lucky to have them in Bellingham!! Also, they serve the BEST hot chocolate in town (probably the state, if not the country!). If you haven't tried it yet, you are missing out." -Laura R. review from Yelp


"YUMMY! Best Gelato in town. Their drinking chocolate is spectacular (several kinds). Fancy gift chocolates. Our go-to dessert place. If you want ice cream, get their gelato! Nice tables to sit at for you to enjoy the yummies!" -Caroline K. review from Yelp
