This store was once great but now is dusty and the flavours are suspect. I highly recommend staying away from the lavendar truffle as it takes like soap instead of the subtle hint of lavendar it once had.
I've tried their truffles just because it's close to my home. The taste and texture is just average, and other chocolate they offers rapped in plastic bag didn't seem fresh. I am a little disappointed when I compare their price and quality.
