Honolulu Mag ranks the truffles the best in Honolulu, and we’re tempted to go as far as to say they’re some of the best in the world. The smooth, silky truffles come in almost any flavor you’d like (even Sake and Guinness!). The menu covers the sweet chocolate spectrum too, including adorable solid chocolates in all different shapes and characters.
