Places to buy specialty chocolate near Seattle?

Besides Chocolopolis (a long way south from where I live), does anyone know of places in Seattle or North Seattle to buy specialty chocolates like Amedei or Michel Cluizel? I'd like to feed this addiction with a more convenient drive! Thanks.

  1. Cluizel chocolate bars are available at Metropolitan Market. Unforuntately, it's just the bars, not any of his individual chocolates or other unique treats. He also offers to ship chocolates from his NYC store, if you want to go online.

    1. re: PAO

      If you're shopping online, Chocosphere down in PDX has a wide variety. However, shipping might cost more than gas into downtown.

    2. I believe Central Market carries Michel Cluizel.

      1. I don't know if this is what your looking for but Oh Chocolate on Mercer Island has wonderful handmade truffles. They are small, family owned although I think they have opened a second place (maybe Bellevue?).

        I just reread your post and realize you are probably in North Seattle but figured I'd leave this on here anyway.

        Good luck!

        1. EvZE World Gourmet on Eastlake sells Michel Cluizel chocolates: I know they have bars and I think they also have some of the boxed stuff like bon bons. You can't exactly order the bars on the website but they sent me a shipment because I live in the Seattle area.

          1. Thanks for the tips, everyone!

            For all those other North Seattle chocolate fans out there, Central Market in Shoreline and Metropolitan Market in Queen Anne both do sell delicious, delicious Michel Cluizels, though only the dark varieties. They also have limited selection of brands such as Valrhona and Dolfin. The only place I've found Amadei is still Chocolopolis.
