Chock full o’ chocolate

Retail store

The Chocolate Garden opened in 2021 in one of the little hidden public spaces off Carmel’s main drag, Ocean Ave. They carry hundreds of bars, including some SFBA chocolate, like Jade, L’Amourette, Endorfin, Coracao, and Cacao’s Meow. They also carry hot chocolate/ceremonial cacao and other chocolate treats, like chocolate soda. They even carry the über-expensive to’ak chocolate.

In addition to their Carmel shop, they have a chocolate shop/café in Nevada City. If you can’t make it to either spot, you can buy some of their chocolate on their website, The Chocolate Marketplace.

CBTB tip

The Chocolate Garden is closed on Wednesdays, so plan accordingly.
