L’More Chocolat coming to Wayzata

The Wayzata Weekly newsletter from the City of Wayzata included this tidbit:

“A building permit was issued at 641 Lake St. E, suite 632 to make way for L’More Chocolat. The scope of work includes an interior remodel and a new exterior look. L’More Chocolat will take up a portion of the old Maha! tenant space.”

A quick visit to the company website indicates it will be the “Chocolate Lover’s Destination on Lake Minnetonka,” which will included handmade and imported chocolate treats, truffles, macaroons and more for “discerning connoisseurs“. The website also indicates it is the shop is expected to open in June.

I had seen some plywood over the old Maha space located adjacent to Gianni’s patio as I drove up and down Lake Street this week and wondered what was happening. Stay tuned for more information as it is available!
