Celebrate Love

Love moves, inspires, and helps bring joy to the world.  Love holds our hand and smiles at us when we need it most, but sometimes when we least expect it.  It is an integral part of our everyday life yet we only officially recognize it once a year on Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day is our Super Bowl, and since it falls on a Monday this year, we are making preparations and decorating our stores for a long weekend of celebrating love.  While there will be specials to enjoy throughout the weekend, we are adding some sparkle to our Sunday brunch by including a glass of champagne.  The Sweetheart Sunday Bruch is available at our Union Street location only and sells out every year, so make reservations now. 

To me, Valentine’s Day is about finding and celebrating love.  Love for family, pets, significant other, and yourself.   We have something made with love for everyone special in your life to enjoy.

The Hot Pink Chocolate served with whipped cream and strawberry white chocolate curls is perfect for the little ones in your family and you’ll be surprised how much you’ll like it, as well. 

Hot Pink Chocolate

Amor Chocolat marries creamy dark chocolate mousse with milk chocolate crème brulée in between layers of chocolate cake moistened with a ruby Port reduction.

Maybe white chocolate is your passion.  If that is the case, then the Shangri-La is just for you, as it features Kirsch-moistened vanilla cakes layered with white chocolate and guava mousses, fresh strawberries and whipped cream.



If you are looking to send a sweet gift to a loved one, then you will be tempted by the re-launch of one of our exquisite chocolate bars, Au Chocolat.    The new version is still bittersweet, but now features a luxurious milk chocolate truffle soft center that is “darkened” by the addition of intense Valrhona chocolate.   You will probably want to send one and enjoy one yourself.

Come experience Valentine’s Day weekend with all of us and celebrate love.
