The 4 Most Awesomely Delicious Chocolate Shops in Soho

the best soho chocolate shopsOne of my favorite places in Manhattan is the general downtown (nothing north of Midtown) area, in particular I have a fondness for Soho.  To me, its quintessential New York City.  Narrow streets lined with trees filled with quirky cafes, small shops and oozing of NYC character.  And nestled in the quaint shops are even better shops –> Chocolate Shops!!
The next time you are in Soho these are my recommended Chocolate indulgences!

Kee’s Chocolates

Creamy, not-too-sweet chocolates with intense fillings are made fresh daily at this small chocolate shop.

“The available flavors change with availability of ingredients, and certain flavors remain seasonal.”

Next door to the Kee’s shop, you can watch the chocolates being made, and relish the fact that you can only purchase these chocolates in person.

Marie Belle

MarieBelle’s famous chocolates are so artful its difficult to bite into them — but they are just as delicious as they are beautiful.

Maribel Lieberman is the owner and creator behind Marie Belle Chocolates.   Not only is she a kind, beautiful, and warmhearted person, she’s also an incredible entrepreneur and owner of the famous MarieBelle Chocolates.

Maribel began her international chocolate empire knowing almost nothing about chocolate (other than that she loved eating it!). She traveled to France, Switzerland, Belgium, and all over South America to study how great chocolate was made and to discover where the best cacao beans are grown.

MarieBelle also offers an array of imported chocolates and have a cafe serving chocolate drinks and treats.

Vosges Chocolates

Vosges Chocolates is based out of Chicago, but their SoHo boutique offers visitors a chance to sample these creative confections.  Vosges confections reflect owner Katrina Markoff’s exotic tastes, featuring curry, paprika, and wasabi in some chocolates.  When you step into their store prepare to discover (and walk away with) exquisite truffles infused with unique ingredients: Jamaican rum, wasabi, and wild-fennel pollen. Never a dull moment or idea while perusing these beautiful chocolates both inside and out.

Dominique Ansel

Predawn lines form outside for the Cronut (a croissant-doughnut hybrid), which typically sells out by 10:30am; the afternoons will often see a line to the back of the narrow, sugar-scented shop for both sweet and savory items.

Chef-owner Dominique Ansel spent many years at Daniel as the executive pastry chef and opened his SoHo bakery in 2011, soon winning wildly enthusiastic accolades. If you don’t have the desire  to secure a Cronut, then good for the milk and cookies shot glass . . . . line.  Yes, when you enter the shop, they filter the traffic to CRONUT TRAFFIC or CHOCOLATE SHOT GLASS TRAFFIC.

There’s more traffic in this shop then on the 5/405 merge in LA.  Hang tight.  You’ll get to the front of the line and it will be so worth it!

Of these 4 shops, which one have you visited? 
Would you stand in line for an hour at Dominique Ansel???
Love & Chocolate,
BTW, if you take the 6 train over to Brooklyn then these chocolate shops must be visited (especially need to grab the chocolate chip company at this shop in DUMBO)

And one more thing, if you ever wanted to become a Chocolatier without plunking down tens of thousands (sometimes millions) for your own NYC chocolate shop, this one goes for about $100.
