Jan Hostyn of Vue Weekly Magazine wrote about our store. She said:
As I nibbled my way through the shop, I was especially impressed with their chocolate caviar and the rich sipping chocolate -- almost like warm, dark, intense, liquid chocolate.
Venture off the beaten path and seek out The Cocoa Room. Immerse yourself in the whole delicious chocolate experience, and watch Roos' eyes light up with enthusiasm as she helps you find your passion. But be warned: once you've had the good stuff, there's no going back.
