Next door to Lake Champlain Chocolates’ home on Pine Street is the South End Kitchen.  A place to savor fresh, seasonal fare; a place to connect over a shared love of food; a place for a deeper experience with chocolate.  Open Wednesdays through Sundays, the South End Kitchen is a Café, education kitchen, and home to Blue Bandana Chocolate Maker.

The menu offers lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, with specialty coffees, beer, and wine available all day.  A crackling fireplace and abundant seating make the café a great place to gather with friends, and the adjacent education kitchen buzzes with activity during cooking and chocolate making classes.  With such a rich chocolate heritage, the South End Kitchen is a natural destination for dessert.   Known for small-batch, local ice cream, sundaes and milkshakes, the kitchen also features Lake Champlain Chocolates and Blue Bandana Chocolate in house-made donuts, cookies, cakes, hot chocolates, and pastries.   

Any chocoholic worth his salted caramel will melt at the opportunity to spend an hour making chocolate bars with Lake Champlain’s chocolate sculptress, Emily McCracken. An hour later, students leave with four handmade chocolate bars filled with their choice of premium mix-ins.
