The Chocolate Factory and Cafe

Travel Photo by IgoUgo member

The Chocolate Cafe is right next to Orfila Winery, close to the junction of highway 78 and 79 near Santa Isabel, not far from the picturesque town of Julian. All manner of chocolate and confections are sold, and they are made on the premises. A sign at the side of the building points to the rear, where one can look through the windows at the process of candy making. We ordered cocoa, which came topped with whipped cream and peppermint sprinkles—yummy—and drank it sitting in the shade of a tree at one of the picnic tables scattered throughout the large, landscaped lawn surrounding the property.
