I hear about Ginger Elizabeth all the time—a friend's favorite new flavor of macaron or the chocolate gift box received as a birthday gift. When I finally made it here, I was impressed by the beautiful interior, friendly staff, large selection of macarons, and most of all, the beautiful chocolates. Ginger Elizabeth trained as a chocolatier and pastry chef at the Culinary Institute of America and takes pride in using all-natural, high-quality ingredients. She also promotes responsibility through carefully choosing organic and fair-trade products and local packaging.
Ginger Elizabeth surprised me with flavors like grapefruit and fennel chocolate caramels and blackberry coffee macarons. Fun seasonal delights include chocolate skulls, Day of the Dead chocolates, and pumpkin pie macarons. It's a great place to indulge yourself or buy gifts from the heart of Sacramento.

Sacramento's Ginger Elizabeth Chocolates
Fennel dark chocolate truffle? You betcha (and darn good too!). Ginger Elizabeth [Hahn] is a formerly trained pasty-chef-turned-chocolate-guru celebrated throughout the Sacramento food scene as simply brilliant. You can find her chocolates and desserts served at restaurants, but she also has a stand alone shop in Midtown that is a chocolate lover's dream!
