Created in 2015, this artisan chocolate shop is owned by husbands, Michael and Curtis. Michael's Chocolates confections are like beautiful jewels made with unique and decadent flavors. It all started one day years ago, when Michael and Curtis were walking down the street and Michael said "I think, in my next life, I want to do something with chocolate". The following Christmas, Curtis gifted Michael with some of the best books on chocolate and confectionary production and the rest is history. We highly recommend them! | Location : 3352 Grand Ave.
