Anette's Chocolate Factory
Established by siblings Anette and Brent Madsen, this downtown sweet shop is housed in a yellow-walled, wood-floored space that was formerly Patrick’s candy store. Inside, a wall of windows enables customers to watch the chocolatiers at work, crafting the shop’s assortment of more than 120 candies, brittles, and sauces. In addition to favorites like the salted caramels and microbrew-beer brittle, the store uses a 62 percent dark chocolate foundation to create Anette’s signature wine truffles, which are filled with jellies made from local wines. The shop also sells homemade ice cream and coffee drinks.
