not only does this delightful shop have more varieties of licorice than i knew existed, they have some candy from my childhood that took me back. wonderful! and from this non-chocolate lover (gasp!) i have to give kudos to their sel de mer dark chocolate. made a convert out of me. terrific with a lovely cappucino from one of the authentic italian cafes on the street. highly recommend a visit here.
