I am all for the “eat local” trend if it means I get to eat chocolates!
The other night, the hubby and I went out for dinner in downtown Hillsborough at the Gulf Rim Cafe. On the way up Churton Street to the restaurant, we passed a new store front right next to the cafe…Matthew’s Chocolates!
Hubby took one look at me and said “Yes, we will stop on the way out.” I love him so.
After our great dinner at the Gulf Rim, (I had a mahi mahi burrito and hubby had the crawfish pie, both excellent), we stopped in to check the place out. The woman behind the counter explained the different pieces to us. We picked two of Matthew’s signature candies and one that had a hazlenut filling. The signature candies were painted yellow, blue and orange. They were filled with real coconut and a whole almond. We enjoyed them with a Cabernet Sauvignon we got from Chapel Hill Wine Co. Yum.
If you live in the area, you should definately make a point to take trip into downtown Hillsborough, NC. The restaurants there are all local and they are great. Even better you can support the local economy with great chocolate!
