The Chocolate Museum
The museum features exhibition about the making of chocolate as well as displays of favorite candy colored movies like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. One of this country’s most beloved tastes, most of us don’t know how chocolate is made. The displays include antique memorabilia from the early days of chocolate making to vintage tins and boxes.
It is said that the chocolate we enjoy today was first made in London in 1657. However, chocolate has been consumed for over 200 years when cacao was grown and produced in South and Central America.
The property includes outdoor seating as well as a Biergarten right next door. Goat Soup and Whiskey also shares this address. This spot on the island is so full of delicious food, you could spend the entire day here eating your heart out.
