A great friendly little store right near the visitors centre. Hand crafted delicious little treats, not your usual chocolates flavours, but so much better. Worth seeking out if you or someone you know loves chocolate. Gift boxes available.

These are not your usual flavours but they are really terrific. The are hand crafted and totally unique. Really worth searching out. I like chocolate and was really surprised to find such fabulous creations in this remote corner of the world.

Shop was easy to miss with very little signage. Visited after looking at the website and confirming opening hours only to discover that it was closed. Disappointing when information provided is misleading and given that it was the heart of the tourist season.More

Found while visiting the info centre, an amazing little store with probably the best chocolates we have tried (including Margaret River, Tasmania etc.) A must see.

In the visitor centre in Denmark you find the most amazing chocolatier, his dark chocolates are exquisite. You must try salted caramel and jelly sandwich in particular! Well worth a visit, great for a gift or a treat for yourself.

We found John Wade's shop a few years ago down by the bridge - it was a revelation - the highest quality hand-made chocolates, beautifully packaged. Great pressies and great to scoff! As well as 'traditional' collections, he has created specifically Western Australian flavour centres...More

Whilst visiting the Denmark Visitor Centre, we also visited this chocolate manufacturer. So glad we did, the variety and flavour combination made it extremely hard to choose. So as it was so hard to choose we bought a little more than we should have. But...More
