Chocolate Fashion
248 Andalusia Ave.
Coral Gables, FL 33134
(305) 461-3200

Date: May 10, 2015

Chocolate Fashion is great because it offers several options for your budget and your preference. For instance, if mom is a chocolate fiend then you can get her a gourmet box of chocolates made fresh in house for $34 or you can up the ante and have a feast for eight at home. The Mother's Day brunch menu features salmon, lobster, chicken and more but it will cost you a pretty penny with prices starting at $196. The benefit is that you don't have to dress up to have this meal and you can do it at home while watching mom's favorite movie. It's pretty much the perfect gift.
