The cadillac of artisanal chocolatiers, Dandelion’s bean-to-bar chocolate and pastry shop in the Mission is at the top of the city’s list of most desirable food destinations. At their new factory down the road, Dandelion roasts, sorts and tempers small batches of cacao beans, then makes each chocolate bar by hand. At the cafe, you’ll find a range of chocolatey goodness to taste, sip or gorge on. If your interest in chocolate lies a little deeper than the average lover, check out Dandelion’s factory tours and chocolate tasting and making classes.

Dandelion is known for their small-batch artisanal chocolate and chocolate-infused menu. They use their own chocolate in their hot and cold beverages as well as a bevy of pastries. They also offer tours of their chocolate factory and bean-to-bar process, which is in-house, and they also offer a variety of classes. It's a chocoholics dream.
