Arrowhead Chocolates in Joseph, Oregon

On our fall visit to Eastern Oregon, we came across Arrowhead Chocolates. We're always on the look out for new and unusual places, (which I love to feature in my Blog), but who would have expected a Chocolatier in the small town of Joseph? This is a charming chocolate shop, but they also have amazing coffee, scones, waffles on Sunday, and gift items. 
The chocolates are handmade right in the shop, of course we couldn't resist bringing some home.  The western designs, butterflies and fish were too cute!
On the day we stopped by, several artists were Plein Air Painting around town. Joseph seems to be a haven for artists, and it's easy to see why with the dry weather and amazing scenery. 
 Inside the chocolate shop was nice and toasty, and we were tempted to come back for the waffles that they serve every Sunday, but unfortunately had to get back to Portland.
If you stop for coffee, be sure and enjoy a scone.  They're very moist and delicious!  
I loved all the teas and tea accessories in the shop, and I managed to do some one stop Christmas shopping.  I bought one of the colorful mugs with strainers to keep my tea warm when I'm in my office. 

Best of all, they ship everywhere, so I definitely plan to order some chocolates to tie me over until I get back to eastern Oregon again!
