The Secret Behind That Smile?

‘She enjoyed her favourite treats: squares of dark chocolate. She ate it every day. A bite or sometimes more. She had a special drawer in the house where she would put her chocolate and it was forbidden to touch. She would get upset if someone finished it before her. Chocolate was her favourite pick-me-up.’

-  Luca Dotti, on his mother, Audrey Hepburn

We’ve Got History
As the saying goes, we can’t know where we’re going unless we know where we’ve been. So, take a trip down memory lane - or several memory ‘winds’ if you’re in Pittenweem - and discover the rich and beautiful history of the area. We highly recommend having a peek inside St Fillan’s Cave on Cove Wynd. We hold the key in our shop. Or, discover the romance and reality of life at sea in the wonderful The Scottish Fisheries Museum in #Anstruther.

Be Charmed By Chocolate
Chocolate, especially the good quality dark stuff, is synonymous with love and romance. In fact, science shows that cocoa boosts the pleasure chemical, dopamine. So, when you’re ready to cosy up in a quiet neuk, step inside our chocolate haven on the high street in Pittenweem. You’ll discover our Cocoa Tree Cafe, with its celebration of chocolate on our menu and our little chocolate shop. Our own collection of chocolates are lovingly handmade in Pittenweem.
