Conover Coffees & Chocolates Café – Chocoholics beware! Here, among the truffles and the meltaways, the nuts and the caramels, the Gourmet Bridge Mix and other familiar favorites, you’ll find one very rare and extraordinary ingredient – our 100% pure chocolate passion. We not only feature over 70 different kinds of chocolate indulgences but we also offer gourmet blends of coffees, teas & smoothies. Now you can join us in our Café for breakfast or lunch or just stop in for one of our tempting desserts. We’re here to satisfy your every chocolate fantasy! www.conovercoffees.com

A 15-minute drive on a scenic road will take you to your next stop along the Chocolate Trail. The White Pines Resort, located in the beautiful White Pines Forest State Park, offers a scrumptious lunch in their historic lodge restaurant where you can choose from homemade soups and hearty sandwiches served on home- baked breads to more substantial entrees. Their chicken Pot Pie and Sweet Tooth Sampler are always favorites. Save room for one of their many desserts which includes a chocolate cobbler with ice cream. While there be sure to check out the country gift shop that offers a variety of gifts plus assorted chocolates, truffles and myrtles.

Looking for a fun and entertaining afternoon? Consider taking in the White Pines Playhouse (advance reservations needed) located within the historic log lodge which runs from Noon – 3pm and offers live stage shows with talented singers, actors and comedians plus a delicious home cooked luncheon.
