*UPDATE JULY 2019 – Sadly Amelia’s has since closed it’s doors. *
Amelia’s chocolate recently moved premises into the town centre.
Now comprising of a cafe, with an open plan viewing area of the ‘kitchen’, a workshop/event room as well as being a chocolate shop. Amelia has certainly got her chocolate fingers on the button and it’s been great to see all her plans and ideas for the expansion come together.
With the loss of Thornton’s Chocolate’s to the town’s high street, Amelia’s cafe – with it’s REAL chocolate hot chocolate drinks, along with other hot drinks, many flavours of gelato, daily cakes and treats (plus gluten free options), it is definitely being well received by locals and visitors alike. I recently tried the ‘gold’ hot chocolate, which is basically caramel infused and it was amazing.
It’s great to see how Amelia has utilised the space of the premises. Especially in regards to the displays of all her yummy chocolate in the shop area. Chocolate treats and gifts and always a good idea, but the Christmas displays and products are always m favourite. From chocolate filled baubles to chocolate stirrers and chocolate advent calendars. I actually picked up a milk chocolate stirrer the other week for my eldest’s Christmas Eve box.
The chocolate letters are a great way of making an edible, yummy, thoughtful and bespoke gift for any occasion or even a stocking filler.
Amelia’s also hosts chocolate making workshops, for all the family. Over this festive period, you can make a chocolate candy house, for exanple. And the workshops in the school holidays are great.
If you’re looking for a different children’s party, then Amelia can cater for that too.
The extra space has also allowed Amelia to host shopping events. Evenings over the festive period where other small local independent businesses will showcase their products. Chocolate and more.
Amelia’s really is a one-stop shop.
Chocolate is always a good idea.
