The place may not look like much (small store front across the street from Divisadero Car Wash), but these chocolates make up for it BIG time...
I stopped one day for coffee (really good espresso, by the way - Graffeo!) and as the sign outside promises - you get one free truffle with each coffee order. I have to admit, from then on I was hooked: I have been back for many more coffees witha free truffle, but I have also taken home various little boxes of 15 truffles, each time trying out a new flavor - from Dark Chocolate to Coconot, from Espresso to Kahlua, from Cognac to Hazelnut, from Caramel to Blackberry ... my absolute favorite being Earl Grey!
They make for a great little desert with coffee, they also make for a great hostess gift at dinner parties.
Five Star has various cute boxes to choose from - or you bring in your own bowl and have him fill it up for instant serving ...
