I saw this chocolate shop on the tv show Unique Sweets on the Cooking Channel last year, and since i was in the area dropped by. As soon as you walk in your smacked in the face with the smell of chocolate!! A great atmosphere with a great view of Valencia Street. I purchased the Nutella filled Chocolate Chip Cookies and the Dulce De Leche Bar. The Dulce De Leche bar is ridiculously good!! I definitely want to try the European Drinking Chocolate when I go back. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves chocolate.

Amazing place! Slightly pricy but totally worth. A must have for foodies who like chocolate. I suggest pairing a hot chocolate with a small bite on the side of an afternoon. Don't come too late, they run out of some things since everything is fresh.

Wow. This was an amazing find! I tried their hot chocolate and it was amazing. The balance between sugar and chocolate and the texture of the chocolate was superb. NOTE: If you like "sweet" chocolate, you might be disappointed by their offerings. These guys have an awesome chocolate--it is all about the texture. Do not avoid their chocolate just because it is not loaded with sugar. Try everything they have. I loved almost everything I tried; I love dark chocolate and low-sugar chocolate. Highly recommended.

Really cool shop if you're a chocolate enthusiast. Even is you're not, they have selections for you! The driving chocolate is just that. Thick, rich, hearty driving chocolate.

Amazing little chocolate factory in the heart of mission. So many delicious forms of chocolate. Similarly to Four Barrels you can sit and watch the beans being processed into sweet chocolate. Be aware though, you can easily get too much ( :

Small batch chocolate used in unique desserts (a chocolate spritzer?). My favorite part is the ability to sample chocolate from different regions as well as a raw cacao nib & learn about how the chocolate is made. I know they're chocolatiers, but their homemade marshmallows are the tastiest thing I've eaten - SO good!

This is one of my favorite places in the city. I remember first walking into the shop and thinking, "Wow, whoever owns this shop must really love chocolate!" Delicious chocolate with only two ingredients: cacao beans and sugar. They even offer free tours of their factory, where they tell you about how they source their beans, and the different machines they use in every part of the process from bean shelling to liquification. The decor and interior design is also beautiful -- many of their serving tools I've learned are items they've curated while traveling around the world -- the tiny spoons from Japan, the oak serving platters from Italy. It's a great (noisy, but I don't mind) place to read a book or get some work done. I generally don't like dessert (it's too sweet) but the desserts here are to-die-for. They even have complimentary hand-made marshmallows that you can put in your coffee or hot chocolate.

Chocolate is really good. Great single origin chocolate. The bar made from Madagascar beans tastes like strawberry, so much fruitiness and nice acidity. Cacao fruit smoothie is neat, hadn't had that elsewhere. Little too sweet though. Plus, the Chocolate 201 class was awesome -- rather expensive but a really unique experience. I made a kilo of delicious chocolate from scratch: got to choose which beans to use and how much sugar. Learned how to crack and winnow and roast beans, and also got a nice in-depth tour of the whole process at Dandelion.
