Talking For the Chocolate Lover in you....

Ethel's Chocolate Lounge I have to say has by far the best chocolate out there to date.

What, pray tell do you ask is a "chocolate lounge"?

Here's a link to their site for more info:
http://www.ethelschocolate.com/

For those who have overdosed on Starbucks here's a new indulgence!

Shane and I have been seeing ads for this place since summer of 2005 but didn't get around to going there until 3 weeks ago and all I can say is that we should've gone sooner.

They have 5 locations in Chicago, 1 in Skokie, 1 in Hinsdale, 1 in Evanston, 1 in Deer park and yes folks, there's one in Naperville, about 3 doors down from the Starbucks on Jefferson St.

My one regret about discovering this place is that they're so far only indigenous to the Chicagoland area , but they do have a website shop that ships!

Long live Chocolate!

Talking

More pics!

Actually after looking at these, I believe a chocolate run to the Naperville location is in order.

Bye y'all!

OMG, I'm a chocolate crackhead. I don't think I could go a week without it. I definitely have to try this place out.

They have 2 locations on Michigan Avenue, also 1 on Armitage west of Halsted and there's also on on the 3400 block of Southport. Enjoy.

There's one in Old Orchard where Gloria Jean's used to be. Also Godiva kicked it up and is selling hot chocolate now.

I'm partial to the DePaul/Lincoln Park/Lakeview are myself, a Starbucks at virtually every turn and now accessible Ethel's Chocolate Lounges, gotta love it.
