Find a Sweet Treat at Cambridge Chocolate Shops

When you want a sweet treat, Boston-area stores have you covered. They feature an array of goodies, from truffles to raspberry chocolate bars. You're bound to find anything you're craving.

The chocolate shops near our Cambridge apartments include:

L.A. Burdick Chocolates

What began with one man and Swiss tools is now regarded as a "pioneer of fine chocolates in America." L.A. Burdick Chocolates is where the skilled team never uses molds. Their approach is rare today. They also cook, pipe, dip, and pack the chocolates by hand. Be sure and try the store's famous chocolate mice. They're a customer favorite and make for cute gifts. In addition, you can also shop for assorted chocolate bars, chocolate-covered cashews, and much more.

Beacon Hill Chocolates

Found on historic Charles Street, Beacon Hill Chocolates is where you'll discover artisan treats from around the world. Owner Paula Barth extensively travels to find the finest and rarest confections. The treats come from France, Brazil, Italy, and other far-away places. What’s more, they feature high-quality ingredients, and you never know what the selection will feature next. The truffles are one of the most popular offerings. Flavors include almond butter crunch, caramel sushi, and honey whiskey.

Taza Chocolate

Step into Taza Chocolate to watch the chocolatiers hard at work. Viewing windows offer a look at the action, and you can even enjoy a sample or two. Founder Alex Whitmore became inspired to open the factory after a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico. He only partners with vendors who respect the environment. In addition, Taza became the first chocolate maker in the country to establish a third-party certified Direct Trade Cacao Certification program. Chocolate bar offerings include almond milk crunchy cashew, wicked dark, and raspberry crunch.

Before sampling from chocolate shops around Cambridge, enjoy some wings at a local restaurant. When you're considering calling Luxe at Alewife home, please contact us. Our leasing team will schedule a tour where you can see all that our apartments in Cambridge have to offer.
