It started with handmade truffles. Three decades later Gayle’s Chocolates is still creating high quality and beautiful confections and, according to our resident chocolate lover Paige, serving a tasty cup of hot cocoa at the pretty-as-a-picture shop in Royal Oak.
And yes, there is a Gayle who started it all and has built a reputation for specialty chocolates and molded chocolate novelties. Try on her line of shoes, from orange and dark chocolate peep toe high heels to golf shoes that come with a white chocolate golf ball.
In addition to the Royal Oak location there are two Gayle’s Chocolates shops at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, so there’s no reason to go home empty-handed. Unless you can’t resist and devour the chocolate en route.
