MAD FOR MADISON

It’s not obvious that the Chocolaterian Café’s building was, for nearly 100-years, a department store, but a few reminders remain – the antique wood shelves, the Schenk Huegel sign, and the cozy booth nooks that formerly served as dressing rooms.

What’s notable today, of course, is what co-owners Leanne Cordisco and Kimberly Vrubley have added: windows into the busy kitchen, a rotating gallery of local artwork for sale, and most importantly, a menu that includes even more than the name suggests.

Yes, there’s chocolate: cakes and bars, fondue and tarts.  And for the heathens: lemon squares and macarons, cookies and toffee.   But for those who know they shouldn’t live on dessert alone: quiches and paninis, soups and galettes.

Before I could grab a chicken and fig panini to go, Leanne had the Let Them Eat Candles display on the counter, and the boxes added to inventory.  These women know how to please their customers!  Don't take my word for it.  Come see (and taste) for yourself.
