Living Local | Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge

This is a pretty random post, but I’ve found a place I love and I feel the need to share.

I’ve been wanting to visit Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge ever since Blake brought home a little box of truffles he received as a gift at work. I tried one four and was hooked (pumpkin spice, turbo thai, margarita zing, blueberry patch). A few weeks ago I had some errands to run in Anchorage, so Lillian and I decided to stop in for a fun mommy-daughter date.

I loved the place as soon as we walked in the door. We were greeted and offered a sample of sipping chocolate. It was my first time tasting sipping chocolate. They have a regular flavor and a spicy one. I went with the spicy. Delicious.

After we got settled in, I put in my order for a latte and two truffles. I ordered the pistachio passion truffle and an espresso one that I can’t remember (or find on the website) the name of.

We did some exploring while we waited for my order. It’s such a neat place! Chocolate is displayed and for sale everywhere. I loved checking out the large display case containing the truffles, caramels, and bonBOMBS. Of course they sell a smoked salmon chocolate bar. I didn’t try it, but I’m definitely trying it next time. They also make a salmon truffle! Whoa. There’s more than just chocolate on the menu. Think coffee house + chocolate. Something for everyone.

The coolest seat in the house is a little bar area where you can sit and watch all of the delicious chocolate goodness being made. Lillian loved watching the chocolatiers at work. I’m with her, it was pretty cool.

When my order was ready, I dove into the chocolate and Lillian dove into a bottle (and a teething ring). She was the best little date. She’s at an age now where it’s actually fun to go places with her. Praise the Lord!

We had such a great time at Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge. I dedicated an entire post to the place, so clearly I loved it. I can’t wait to go back and try more things on the menu!

It’s a gorgeous day here in Alaska. Lillian is taking a little nap and then we’re going to go outside for a walk. We might even head into Fur Rondy, a winter festival going on right now (read more about it here). I hope everyone is having a great weekend and a happy Sunday!

    Ooooo I haven’t tried this place! We go to the Alaska Wild Berry place in south Anchorage. Their truffles are so good, and the kids love the chocolate waterfall! But I am going to have to check this place out :)
