Chocolate specialties

One place to start browsing in Geneva, provided you could use a little snack, is Graham’s Homemade Chocolate, located in the Berry House at 227 S. Third St.

The specialty here is chocolate, although homemade ice-cream, hard candy and other gourmet foods can be found within the shop.

The shop has been in Geneva for two years and owner Bob Graham has been pleased with business so far. All chocolate is made right in the shop, and customers can even observe the process.

Graham had eight years of chocolate-making experience and when he decided to start up his own business, he chose Geneva as the site for many reasons, the main one being that he “could fit right in.”

In making all his own chocolate Graham feels that he adds “a little bit of yesterday” to his business, and this practice does indeed fit in with the historic area his shop is located in.
