Our History

Welcome to The Sweet Buffet, a modern chocolaterie steeped in old-world, Dutch traditions.

Our History Since 1913, our family has been proudly handcrafting exceptional white, milk and dark chocolate bonbons and other indulgent confections for Europe and the U.S.

Beginning with just a brick of Dutch chocolate made from the same recipe perfected over 100 years ago, we make each of our fanciful creations in a secret process that can take up to two days. From our hand-painted chocolates that taste of merlot to our buttery caramels to our truffles filled with fresh cream, fruits, and nuts – our cases are piled high with flavors, textures, and shapes that demonstrate The Sweet Buffet unparalleled attention to detail. It takes great skill, commitment and passion to produce the highest quality chocolates available and our team of third-generation chocolatiers is dedicated to maintaining the reputation of quality our family-owned business has built. In each of our stores, the traditions that began over a century ago with Charlotte The Sweet Buffet are very much alive and well today.

A trip to The Sweet Buffet is an experience like no other. It’s not just the taste of our treats you’ll love – it’s the intoxicating scent of fresh truffles that fills the room, the inviting warmth of our cozy shops and the exciting experience of selecting your own favorite sweets to take home and slowly explore.

Sure, you’ve tasted chocolate before – but nothing better than this!
