KARAT Chocolate Boutique


Karat Chocolate, love child of local pastry chef and chocolatier Julian Helman, is just off the beaten path but well worth the vagabond. Handcrafting the best-tasting chocolate on the planet, and we say this without bias - Julian strives to leave modest footprints while satisfying our most decadent cravings. Sourcing ingredients from local sustainable producers, Karat is creating an artisan chocolate culture steeped in goodness.

Each bar and chocolate is carefully handcrafted and wrapped with pride. Using only the highest quality chocolate and cacao beans nothing is compromised in creating and presenting the perfect offering.  

Whether you have a sweet tooth or simply respect an original work of art, Karat Chocolate will not disappoint which is why this decadent local delight is gaining international recognition while garnering an impressive resume of rave reviews.
