XOX Truffles is an authentic French chocolatier who’s been selling his handmade truffles in North Beach since 1997. With these hand-rolled truffles, you can see the hand of the maker. And sometimes you can also meet the maker at the shop.
So many truffles have been made here that it has its own patina: Look up and you’ll see chocolate dust on the walls.
UPDATE 3/2014: XOX opened an outpost @ SFO in Terminal 3.
Buy a cup of coffee at XOX, get a free truffle.
