Modern Dwellers Chocolate Lounge is a hip hang-out with a creative vibe for chocolate and espresso lovers. Their drinking chocolate is delicious and addictive – their espresso compliments it perfectly. The owner, Zoe Oakley, is an incredibly talented artist, both with a brush on canvas and with cocoa in a truffle. The lounge displays a multifarious mixture of locally crafted art and jewelry, much of which can be attributed to Zoe. She’s even created tables and chairs made with reclaimed wood from gymnasium floors! Zoe was not around when we were there, but Sara and Harmony were exceedingly nice and helpful – Harmony even agreed to let me take a quick portrait. Your next trip to Anchorage needs to include Modern Dwellers – try their BonBombs, smoked salmon chocolate squares, and Mayan spice caramels. That should get you started.
