The Chocolate Café

Trust a chocolatier from Nantucket to bring high-end confections to us in a lace-curtained, picture-perfect café. Specialties at this shop include dark chocolate cherry cordials and addictive chocolate-covered candied orange peel. The scones and madeleines for café mocha dipping are worth trying too, and don’t even get us started on the hazelnut and Grand Marnier truffles.
