Sweet Divas  Chocolates opened today at 400 Beach Drive NE in downtown St Petersburg. Note that it’s actually on 4th Avenue North, just off Beach Drive. It joins The Gift Box and Savory Spice Shop in this strip of shops just around the corner from the Chihuly Collection.

The bright lime green awnings caught my attention as I was driving by early this morning – so I went around the block and came back to check it out. There’s free parking right along the curb.

Immediately inside the door the silent Dobson was there to greet me, offering various chocolate samples.

Once past Dobson, the greetings were warmer and vocal:  Christy (the chocolate maker) and Jeanne (the baker) had smiles, even this early in the morning.

At this hour, the coffees and teas would be the most popular, accompanied by muffins or cupcakes, cookies or chocolate. I chose a latte, which could have a variety of flavors.

Conrad, Christy’s husband, was still hanging the menu board when I came in. He was quick to tell me that Christy not only made ganache, but could custom blend a chocolate just for me. When Jeanne learned that I was a Realtor, she was quick to let me know that they made gift baskets and had gift certificates.

Looking around the shop, there were a variety of chocolates, baked goods and other treats. Come here to look for gifts and be sure to buy something for yourself while you’re here.
