William Curley is a genius.
I was recommended this magical place by a friend some years ago..however I hadn't made a visit to his store as Richmond was a little to far from home to travel to for chocolate. The opening of the Ebury street store was a great idea as the chocolate is really to die for!
I have spent years in the company of chocolate snobs who will only bring la maison, neuhaus or leonadis boxes over as gifts so I have extremely high expectations from chocolate!! William Curley surpasses all of my chocolate expectations, which has made it extremely difficult to eat other chocolate now!
His wasabi and apricot ,fresh mint and sea salted caramel chocs are absolutely out of this world. If you are in the company of those adverse to chocolate there is also a yummy breakfast option..i remember fresh waffles and fruit!
Every piece of chocolate is a little burst of intense flavour and a testimony to why Curley is so highly regarded in what he does.
The only criticism I have is that sometimes the non chocolate choices do not seem as fresh, as I have experienced slightly dry textures with the macaroons.
The staff are all extremely friendly and very sweet and helpful if its your first time visiting and feel overwhelmed by the choice.
Beware..if you visit William Curley you will never be able to eat chocolate form anyone else again!
