Sunday 10am - 6pm | Restaurant Hours Vary.Cost: FREE! (well, free sample square of Ghirardelli caramel chocolate to nibble on whilst perusing the crowded shop)
After Cold Stone you'd think it absurd to want any more sweetness, but Ghirardelli's was JUST around the corner, and we WERE walking, so off we went.
The fantastic Ghairardelli sign loomed above us as we walked past the Powell & Hyde Cable car stop.
Upon entering the shop, we each received a sample square of Ghirardelli's caramel chocolate - sinfully delicious - but just what it took to throw us over the edge from our Cold Stone treat just minutes before.
The gate to Ghirardelli Square, where, half a caramel bar later and empty-handed, I was ready to barf (I know, I surprised myself, too).
Good thing we get Ghirardelli's chocolates in Toronto, otherwise I'd be kicking myself right about now.
