A Fix for Chocoholics

Chocoholics can have a field day in San Francisco. Bakeries offer great chocolate pastries and cakes. There are a number of confectioners producing superb chocolate candies. One of my favorites is XOX Truffles in North Beach. This small shop produces over 20 different flavors of truffles. These are not the large, cream-filled truffles that we usually see. Rather, XOX produces small, bite-sized morsels. One or two of these rich, creamy delights is enough to keep any chocoholic happy for the day.

Truffles are sold individually or by weight. XOX is located at 754 Columbus Avenue, between Filbert and Greenwich Streets in North Beach. The shop is open from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. form Monday through Saturday. On Sunday, hours are 10:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

If you would like to take a chocolate tour of San Francisco that focuses on the city's many purveyors of wonderful pastries and candies, please call me at (866) 326-4237 (toll free) or e-mail me by clicking here.
