Chocolate Necessities Downtown v2.jpgDOWNTOWN REOPENED! 1408 Commercial St., Tue-Sat, 10-to-6. Sadly, a generator malfunction temporarily keeps us from making our signature authentic Italian Ice Cream (gelato & sorbetto) for about a week.
Meanwhile, you can choose from among
many original-recipe desserts, outlandishly good espresso, mocha, affogato, and a limited array of world-class chocolates. 

Spaced seating indoors (and one table outside), with appropriately safe measures in place for serving you 
Go, Seahawks!12thManDark.jpg


Off to a great start in Atlanta. Our wonderfully creative, culinary institute trained chocolatier, Nicole, is as rabid a Seahawks football fan as there is, and she loves making the specialty No. 12 in both dark and milk chocolate for this time of year. Great for your living room tailgate party. Available at both stores.

THE SCOOP! Hang on for about a week. Breakdown has Italian Ice Cream (aka, Gelato & Sorbetto) on hold Downtown. We're back from COVID shutdown31389842_1671259099593953_5261598691541647360_n.jpg with limited hours, staff, and inventory. Gradually we'll increase supply as we work out the new normal for operating (fewer inside tables and one outside, fewer hours, closed two days, etc.) 1408 Commercial St. in Bellingham, Tue-Sat, 10a-6p. 360.733.6666

 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
