Attention, chocolate lovers! MECHA (mee-cha) Chocolate has opened a new artisan chocolate boutique at 1618 E Passyunk Avenue. The chocolatier, which opened its flagship location in Haddonfield, NJ, has brought its sweetness across the bridge to Philadelphia. The South Philly chocolate shop specializes in small-batch dark chocolates, barks, marshmallows, and other chocolate-centric treats.
MECHA Chocolate is owned and operated by Chef and Chocolatier Melissa Crandley. After graduating from the Culinary Art Institute of Philadelphia with a degree in Culinary Arts, Melissa worked in the kitchens of notable Center City Philadelphia restaurants, where she honed her love of the chocolate craft.
The shop will be closed on Thanksgiving, but holiday shopping hours after that will be Monday-Saturday from 11am-6:30pm, and Sunday from 12pm-4pm.
