Enjoy Artisan Candy In Santa Cruz, Capitola, Monterey, San Jose, San Francisco
Since 1988, chocolatier Richard Donnelly has been making some of the finest chocolate in the world, right here in Santa Cruz. While in cooking school in Paris, France, Richard happened into a small chocolate factory and cafe where one bite changed the course of his life as he knew it. Having tasted some of the best chocolate ever, his goal became to make the finest chocolate on earth.
With the help of some family members, he was soon doing that, making some of the best chocolate that was ranked among the Top 10 in the world by National Geographic plus accolades from many other US magazines. Donnelly Chocolates is located in Santa Cruz at 1509 Mission Street. You can also find their fine offerings at: Shopper’s Corner in Santa Cruz, CA; Crossroads Books in Watsonville, CA, and in San Francisco, CA at Fog City News and the Balboa Movie Theater.
