Welcome to Cadence Chocolates. We make custom hand-painted chocolates with delicate shells and rich, flavorful ganache centers. Whether you are celebrating your wedding, hosting for the holidays, or want to add decadence to your weeknight dinner party, we are here for you. Let's talk.
What makes our chocolates special? We're really great at (and not very humble about) vegan chocolates, dreamy abstract designs, and bespoke flavors that capture your imagination and experiences.
While we do not have a storefront, we offer complimentary bike delivery to most neighborhoods in San Francisco and Oakland**.

GANACHE: A rich filling made from chocolate, cream, and butter at its most basic.
SHELLING: The process of lining chocolate molds with tempered chocolate.
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.
