As soon as you enter the door, you will step into the shop where you can sample chocolate, buy chocolate products, and line up for drinks and pastries. The chocolate samples are a great opportunity to really taste the different flavor profiles.

To avoid lines, it is best to go during the middle of the weekday when everyone is still at work. There are limited stool seats, so when it is crowded you may have to take your pastries to go and enjoy it elsewhere.

Brownie Bite Flight. One of the more popular dessert items. Each brownie is made with single origin chocolate so you can taste the distinct differences. Other popular items include the S’Mores and chocolate drinks.

 

Tours, Classes, Events

To make the most of your Dandelion experience, book a tour or class to see the whole factory. One hour tours and tastings start at $15. These must be booked ahead online as they sell out quickly. For more information and bookings, check out their website.
