A scrumptious Norfolk institution, Digby Eddison started his first luxury chocolate & sweet shop in Holt around 20 years ago, before moving to the Royal Arcade in Norwich. Two years ago he opened a second shop – Digby’s in Cromer, bringing high quality confectionery to the north Norfolk coast.
The shop operates a very traditional and high quality ethos across the board, from the highly personable staff to the use of white cotton protective gloves rather than the run-of-the-mill latex catering variety.
Digby’s staff are highly knowledgeable about the tantalising stuff they sell, being able to offer advice on all manner of things chocolate and sweet.
As well as a plethora of Belgian and English chocolates, ‘traditional’ sweets from the jar (sold by the gram or by the oz), liquorice (many varieties), Jelly Belly jelly beans (a big hit with us personally – love ‘em!) and rock (well, it is the seaside!), you’ll find one or two novel ideas here at Digby’s.
We love the ‘Message Mice’ – have a short, completely edible message written on a sugar mouse and have it posted to a friend or family member. Such a cute idea.
Digby’s also offer a ‘Belgian By Post’ service – send a 16, 24 or 32 chocolate gift box to a loved one. Fantastic for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or birthdays.
To make any special occasion sweet and memorable, Digby’s also supplies gift vouchers, helium balloons and offers chocolate fountain hire (which includes set up, preparation and a smart, uniformed operator to ensure your chocolate flows smoothly).
Digby’s has a selection of chocolate that is nut, gluten and dairy free, as well as organic chocolate varieties.
Open Mon-Sat 9am-5pm (7pm during high summer), Sun 10am-5pm.
