A very cool little chocolate factory owned and created by Alain Ducasse, French Michelin star chef. The chocolate is expensive, but the taste is exquisite. The manufacturing process can be seen thru windows from the small purchasing area. There is a selection of sample chocolates...More

Pricey chocolate, but worth a visit, to watch the workers making this excellent chocolate and to buy exclusives. Would be even better if they gave free tastes!
