A restaurant, grocery store, coffee shop, bike shop, bakery, farm and more are moving to Person Street in the Oakwood area of Downtown Raleigh.
Just as Downtown Raleigh ushers in its newest chocolate factory, its first one wins a national award. Escazu Chocolate received a Good Food Award last night in San Fran.
Escazu Chocolates gets a quick blurb on the blog Cool Hunting.
Downtown Raleigh gets it’s first chocolate factory.
Chocolatier Hal Parson was making chocolate bars in Beaufort, North Carolina before venturing to Costa Rica and Venezula. A couple of years later, he has returned to Raleigh’s Glenwood South with a Chocolate Bar that looks to add a bit more daytime activity to the night friendly strip. And with handcrafted chocolates made from organic chocolate from Latin America, Escazu will add a bit more international culture to downtown as well.
