on last week’s impromptu trip to newport, i decided to poke my head into a shop along the aptly named bellevue avenue. what i found could not have been more delightful: an entire shop dedicated to tea-infused chocolates. being in the shop reminded me of afternoons i’ve spent in france, whiling away an hour with a good friend over a cup of hot tea or coffee.
if you ever find yourself wandering in newport, stop into la maison de coco. the bergamot flavored truffle was delightful and the freshly brewed coffee just right.
mmmm, this place looks very close to perfect! xxxxx
tea-infused chocolates?! heaven.
Sounds lovely! Tea + chocolate is a winning combination! I also love that bell jar.
this sounds lovely! I need to take a trip. 🙂
That. looks. like. a dreeeeeam!
Man, I just love your posts!

This place looks AMAZING. I wish I could go right now!
Yum! I want to go to Newport just to try it!!
next time I go I'm going to stop in.
ahhh, this little place looks so scrumptious! thanks for sharing! when did you spend time in France?
those glass jars are to die for. i especially like the composition and the light in the 2nd photos. now i'm craving chocolate.
Beautiful images and I adore bergamot. If I find myself wandering in Newport I will certainly stop and visit this shop.
yes, indeed, if you're ever in town, you should stop by!

I was hungry for chocolate cake today.. it passed. Now when I see this, I have the craving again. 🙂
That sounds delectable….I have a feeling I live very far from Newport!
