As we continued on our Franklin St. adventure, we had one more stop before we made it all the down to Carrboro. We headed down to The Chocolate Door for a little sweet treat, and it didn't disappoint. We headed in and it was a very small shop with one small display case and table behind it. You could look into the other room beyond the counter into the kitchen where they make their delicious treats. The table had a seasonal display of goodies including homemade marshmallows. The display case was filled with delicious goodies including truffles and bark that looked beautiful. The flavors were also very unique including Mayan chocolate, pomegranate, and chocolate bacon.
What we liked: We loved the quality chocolates made right there in their little shop. In addition, they have kids themselves, so they had a little playpen at the front of the store. This kept my boys happily occupied while my husband and I drooled over the chocolate display. The Chocolate Door is a great place for a yummy sweet treat after a great meal on Franklin St.
What we would change: The one negative was that the kitchen was open to the rest of the store. My roaming toddler did try to roam back into the working kitchen at times. Not a good plan.
