Fans of molten chocolate cakes, bacon oatmeal raisin cookies and other sweet treats, your day just got a little brighter. Autumn Martin, formerly the head chocolatier at Theo Chocolates, had a soft open for her shop over the weekend. Today, Martin is ready to welcome the public. Operating hours for the shop are as follows: Monday thru Thursday from 4pm to 10pm and until 11pm on Friday. Weekends the shop will open at 8am and serve until 11pm on Saturday and 10pm on Sunday.
Martin has a Kickstarter project for those who want to invest in the shop and contribute to getting it certified organic: with four days to go, she's 74 percent funded.
