Beautiful chocolates

Around 7 types of vegan chocolates. A good gift option.

Mostly non-vegan

They have about 30 different chocolates but only 5 are vegan. They’re good.

When we visited there were probably about five different vegan options and we got a little pack. The very friendly sales person told us which were vegan. The chocolates were as delicious as you might expect.

Pros: Nice shop , Tasty!

Cons: Expensive

Beautiful shop, but hardly any vegan options - update: improved

Update: pased by a year later, and noticed a label 'vegan' with some chocolates in the shop window. They now have a handful of vegan chocolates available! Improvement 😊
We bought two boxes.
Not just ordinary chocolates. Really original.

I was looking forward to visiting this shop as it popped up on Happy Cow.
It's a beautiful shop, the chocolates look great, and the people in the shop were very friendly.

But there are only two chocolates (pralines) that are vegan. And one vegan bar (pure dark chocolate with dried fruits).
So hardly any vegan options. Bummer.

Sorry to hear that. We are working on vegan pralines but we want to a real perfect vegan opinion. A praline that is at the same level as our non vegan pralines. That’s that we haven’t found a lot at other real chocolatiers without a disappointment. But w have a lot of vegan hand made products in the shop Sind the day we opened like our origin chocolate that wil give you a new chocolate experience and new flavours, our dark hand made chocolate bars with bio fruit (100% fruit without adding sugar), with quality nuts like hazelnuts from Piemonte and the standard national 54% cacao chocolate. We also have hand made choco sticks with cinnamon, ginger, 70% cocoa or the standaard 54% cacao. We also have hand made vegan dark chocolate figures, real marsepein made from real almonds. We have hand made orangettes made with real oranges (so no marmelade industrial version), ginger version (made with real ginger). Please note that we are not a 100% vegan chocolatier but a chocolatier with vegan options. But we are working on a vegan praline line that will have the same quality and unexpected special flavour combinations like our other 50 different hand made pralines. So hope that you will visit us again when we finished our vegan pralines.😄

Lovely shop

The owners of this shop used to have a bakery close to the station. They are really passionate about their craft ( I recommend going downstairs and having a chat with the chocolatiers) and make everything by hand. Their assortment changes periodically and they are always experimenting, trying to create beautiful chocolates with surprising tastes such as lavender, elderflower (both made with flowers from their own garden!). They're also planning to expand their vegan options, so keep your eyes peeled. Can't recommend them enough!

Pros: Friendly and knowledgeable staff, Vegan options, Delicious chocolates

Cons: Limited (but expanding) vegan options
