KC Chocolatier Closes In Downtown Santa Monica

It was back in 2017 when I told you about the exciting arrival of KC Chocolatier to Downtown Santa Monica.  Impressive chocolates, ice cream, and hot chocolate flown in from Belgium put KC squarely on the map for chocolate lovers.  Sadly, fan adoration didn’t appear to be enough.  KC Chocolatier appears to have closed up shop at 1431B 2nd St.  All is not lost though… You can still order online

KC Chocolatier Now Open In Santa Monica

Back in December of 2015, I told you about the impending arrival of KC Chocolatier to 1431B 2nd St. in Downtown Santa Monica, right next to the new Espresso Cielo.  After what seems like a very long time, they are now up and running, serving chocolates, ice cream, and hot chocolate flown in from Belgium.  KC Chocolatier has a shop in Chicago, and is an offshoot of Kim’s Chocolates from Tienen, Belgium, which according to their website, is the “number 1 chocolate exporter to Canada and the United States”.

KC Chocolatier Bringing Belgian Ice Cream And Hot Chocolate To Downtown Santa Monica

It was back in December of last year that I noticed printing on the door of the diminutive space next to upcoming Espresso Cielo at 1431 B 2nd St. in Downtown Santa Monica informing us that something called KC Chocolatier was moving in.  A little digging revealed that KC Chocolatier has a flagship store in Chicago, and is an offshoot of Kim’s Chocolates from Tienen, Belgium, that according to their website is the “number 1 chocolate exporter to Canada and the United States”.  Then the space sat idle for months, with no activity.  Finally, a flurry of construction and a flashy new sign confirm that KC is indeed coming soon, and that they will be bringing with them “fresh Belgian chocolate”, ice cream, and hot chocolate.  We with them the best of luck.

KC Chocolatier Coming Soon To Santa Monica

Located just to the left of upcoming Espresso Cielo at 1431 B 2nd St., signs are up in the window indicating that the new tenant will be an outpost of Belgian chocolate purveyor KC Chocolatier.  With a flagship in Chicago, KC is an offshoot of Kim’s Chocolates from Tienen, Belgium.  No word on an opening date, and it looks like they’ve a way to go, but I’ll keep my eye on it…
