Every chocolate-lover's dream, Yuzu takes the art of making chocolate to an entirely new level.

Inspired by a minimalist approach to chocolate-making, Vanaise combines unexpected flavors and textures to create unusual treats resembling works of art. Look for pralines that combine chocolate with surprising flavors like mustard, salt, thyme, and tobacco.

  • Cute little Japanese inspired chocolate shop. The chocolate is unique and very delicious, and the owner was very informative about the flavours. Defintiely worth trying flavours outside your comfort zone!
  • A fantastic place to buy haute couture chocolates. I liked the owner. He crafted very good chocolates according to my choice. The price is high but very worthy of buying from there. The tasty chocolates are worthy of buying. Very good place to order chat made chocolates for friends, family or someone closer to you.
