So much chocolate

So many vegan options for chocolate and everything is clearly labeled. Even know not to label honey as vegan, thank you! Can get pricey but great rewards program to help save money. Totally worth it.

Pros: Delicious , Options, Great staff

Mind the V!

Take note that the only dark chocolate items that are vegan are those that are dark chocolate AND feature a little “v” enclosed in a circle on the label. For example, there are caramel nut patties that are enrobed in dark chocolate. They are not vegan however! The dark chocolate nut clusters with the little “v” on the label sitting directly above the caramel patties are though but only the ones covered in dark chocolate! (Milk and dark chocolate items are placed on the same tray and share the same label, so you have to specify you want the dark chocolate version of what you are asking for.) Also make sure the person behind the counter is grabbing what you requested, as I had to correct them a number of times on a single visit 😬 Otherwise, this place is a real treat! I mean, chocolate covered Oreos and raspberry truffles? Who could ask for more!

Walked in to get some coffee while walking around [censored] Hill and were pleasantly surprised to find all kinds of vegan chocolate options. Most of their dark chocolate offerings are vegan and everything is clearly marked with a “V”

Delightful spot with various vegan treats. It has been a while since visiting. Staff very knowledgeable as to what is vegan and not all items are in the same area. Customer friendly always and hours into the evening.

I live in [censored] Hill, so I was thrilled to hear that this place had vegan dark chocolate. I went in and had an almond milk latte (no soy here) and bought chocolate covered oreos, a peanut butter cup, and some nut clusters. Delicious! High quality chocolate, lots of vegan options, and a nice place to hang out. They have live music semi-frequently too.

Pros: Chocolaaaaaaate!, Lots of options, Very helpful staff

Cons: None!
