Owner and master chocolatier Andrea Pedraza combines traditional European techniques with modern flavors from Mexico to create some of the finest hand-crafted chocolate delights.

These dark chocolate creations – including fudges, truffles, toffees, nuts and more – are anything but ordinary. Chef Katherine Clapner fearlessly combines almost anything with cacao, ranging from savory to sweet. Try the Albatross blue cheese and sea salt fudge, or the Fungus Amongus porcini and pumpkin seed toffee.

Blending European traditions with Latin American soul, La Duni’s food is terrific, but the desserts are divine. We recommend the four-slice special, so you can try several of their
award-winning Café Line cakes, including the Venezuelan triple chocolate truffle cake or the Nutella milk chocolate cake.
