The Boutique

Sitting just adjacent to the Chocolate Lounge on Pack Square, our handcrafted coffee, ice cream and chocolate boutique, is our favorite insiders’ tip. Long line at the Chocolate Lounge? Maybe you just need a quick gift for a friend? Or an afternoon pick-me-up? Pop on over to the boutique, where we offer our full lineup of bonbons, caramels, and ice cream, plus packaged goodies for snacking or baking. Pair a treat with a locally crafted ceramic mug and letterpressed notecard for the perfect gift.

The Boutique is also host to our Chocolate Bar Library, where we offer our own bean-to-bar chocolate, alongside a curated and ever-changing selection of bars crafted by our like-minded colleagues around the world, including Dandelion, Fruition, Askinosie, and Dick Taylor. We are strong believers in the idea that “a rising tide lifts all boats” and the Library demonstrates our commitment to supporting the burgeoning craft chocolate industry. Our crew is made up of chocolate lovers, who are all excited to guide you through our extensive offerings. Looking for a dark milk? Something fruity? Nutty? 100% cacao? Heck, we’ll even let you sample any of the bars we sell before you buy them. Just ask!
