Dandelion Chocolate @ Ferry Building
Ferry Building, SF
UPDATE: This location is temporarily closed.
Dandelion Chocolate makes bean-to-bar chocolate but they go beyond small-batch and actually custom roast each bag of beans they import to bring out its unique flavors. They opened their first café and open factory kitchen in December 2012. They also have a café in Tokyo, a store and cacao bar in Kyoto, 2 additional stores in Japan, and pop-ups in LA and Taiwan. A new factory at 16th & Harrison (opened April 2019) in SF’s Mission District has a to-go café/retail shop, classes, tours, and a chocolate salon.
The retail shop and café inside the SF Ferry Building sells chocolate bars and gift items, and offers their hot chocolate and pastries to enjoy there or on the go.
