Last night I celebrated my birthday in part by going to Anna Shea Chocolates with my husband. I had been there only one time prior with girlfriends. Bringing in a man was a completely different experience. From it's gaudy crystal chandelier, to its feminine china in which they serve beguiling chocolates, it is a woman's domain. It did not take my husband long to comment on this.
No one throw anything at me, but I am not a chocolate lover. However, being a patron to this establishment is an experience worth having. A cup of coffee with a few chocolates, while sitting on a comfy sofa near a welcoming fire is memorably pleasant. Although securing a spot on one of the much coveted sofas is a feat in itself.
Located in the Arboretum of South Barrington, this chocolate lounge is definitely worth the price of it's quality pieces. Some may compare it to Godiva. I would not go that far, but in moderation it is definitely worth the calories!
