Best Chocolate Shop

The Chocolate Market

Complementary to the White Horse Trading Company snuggled next door in Post Alley, The Chocolate Market seems charmingly in the throes of incurable Anglophilia; you wouldn't be surprised to see, among the small square windows, weathered beams, and vase-topped wrought-iron tables outside, a sign reading "Purveyors of Confections to Her Majesty Queen Victoria, M. Chuzzlewit, Prop." Inside, an oversized wooden chair dominates one corner, as if you'd just swigged Alice's "Drink Me" shrinking potion. On offer are a dozen flavors of fudge, two dozen of truffles, sticks of hard candy in jars, chocolate in fanciful shapes (chocolate pliers, anyone?), coffee drinks, and more. A creamy, walnut-studded cube of maple-nut fudge—generous enough to share, and you'll both be satisfied—goes for a so-worth-it $3.50. GAVIN BORCHERT 1906 Post Alley, 443-0505
