I observed during one of my stops at Matthew’s Chocolates that kids do indeed flock to a candy store. As the tallest patron in the shop at the time, I had a clear view over the heads of the younger clients eyeing the delicious looking chocolates in the display case while waiting for a chocolate-drizzled paleta. I'm a big fan of the barks, especially the Pandora’s Bark, dark chocolate surrounding various nuts and dried fruits, lightly sprinkled with a coarse salt. The spicy Thai Peanut is a close second (sweet and spicy make a great combo in the chocolate world too it seems). Hillsborough has many good dining options but make sure you save some room for Matthew's Chocolate dessert.

This is a delightful place with gorgeously displayed deliciousness. I've been twice now, and both times I was enthralled by the chocolate selection and creative combinations. The shop has a warm, welcoming atmosphere that invites you to sit and enjoy your purchases. I would drive out of my way on purpose just to stop by.

Matthew's Chocolates are delicious. Unfortunately Matthew's personality is not. He is rude, condescending and does not value his customers or the money they provide him. Newsflash Matthew - you are a business owner - your customers ARE your business. You lost four customers today. Getting up on the "wrong side of the bed" is no excuse. I wish you had stayed there and hired counter help that knows how to treat people.

Love their Cardamom Hot Chocolate! Count down the days to winter so I can get some more! Too bad they are a bit far from where I live but I make the trek once/twice year to stock up on the cardamom hot chocolate. I usually get one of their truffle treats too which is also very delicious. Like the flavor combos he has.

My family stopped in for some gellato. It was excellent, and the service was quick, friendly and efficient. We're planning on making this a regular treat on the weekends.

I'm a dark chocolate lover--and by what I had here, this is not the place to go for dark chocolate. The truffles were too soft and oily. The dark chocolate in general was WAY too sweet. I'm sure he knows his local market and that sweetness is appropriate. I would probably not shop here again, unless I were buying a gift for someone. The goods indeed do LOOK great.

Matthew's is definitely the place to splurge, especially if you appreciate an ever-changing array of chocolates and other delicacies. Who knew there were so many delicious variations on hot cocoa? And there's always a great variety of truffles and chocolate barks. I visit at least monthly (okay, maybe a little more often) and Matthew and his staff have always been helpful and informative, with a quirky sense of humor that makes shopping for chocolate fun. Parking can be a challenge, but there is an off-the-street lot just around the corner. Matthew's is also very convenient to several main street restaurants - a great place to drop by for a not-too-big dessert. Or maybe skip dinner and just go for chocolate... mmmm....
