Welcome to Cadence Chocolates. We make hand-painted chocolates with delicate shells and rich, flavorful ganache centers. Whether you are celebrating something special or want to add decadence to your weeknight dinner, we are here for you. Let's talk.
What makes our chocolates amazing? We're really great at (and not very humble about) vegan chocolates, dreamy abstract designs, and bespoke flavors that capture your imagination and experiences.
Storefront-free is a great thing.
While we do not have a storefront, we offer complimentary bike delivery to most neighborhoods in San Francisco.
Bernal Heights, Mission, Downtown, Soma, Financial District, Western Addition, Nopa, Haight Ashbury, Lower Haight and Inner Richmond.
Feel free to check in with us on possible delivery fees beyond these places (we want to be kind to our bike delivery folks).

Award-winning Cadence Chocolates are proudly made in San Francisco by Chocolatier Melissa Santos. Our fillings are made with organic cream, coconut cream, and nut butters blended with GMO-free, fair trade chocolate from Guittard (and sometimes Dandelion Chocolate or Valrhona for extra special occasions). When we're not using dairy, we make the best vegan chocolates you've ever tasted.
