Covid-19 Statement from The Chocolate Sanctuary


After thirteen long weeks, we are pleased to re-open our doors and welcome members of the community to break bread with us once again.

We have fully embraced the notion that some aspects of the way we operate need to change – for the foreseeable future. As part of our reopening, be assured that we are putting the wellbeing of our guests and our staff first:

  • Masks will be worn at all times by all employees
  • We have installed physical barriers where appropriate
  • All employees are following the physical distancing guidelines put forth by the state
  • All staff members are required to wash their hands every 30 minutes; those handling food are required to change their gloves every 30 minutes; servers who clear plates are required to wash their hands immediately afterwards
  • We have installed hand sanitizing stations throughout our space
  • We are actively engaged in employee education
  • All of our menus are single use
  • We have incorporated enhanced cleaning and hygiene procedures and policies
  • We are actively screening employees, including daily temperature checks
  • Our sick policy, which has always been strict, will continue to be enforced
  • For brunch services, we ask our guests to use hand sanitizer prior to enjoying self-service options, we will continue our practice of changing utensils every half hour, we have installed distance markers, and are only allowing only one person or party on each side of our self-service stations
  • For those guests who would prefer to avoid self-service all together, we will continue to offer the option of having our servers take your order and bring it to the table

We will continue to be vigilant and focused on keeping everyone safe during the “New Normal” of the re-opening process. Yet, we also realize that one of the most normal things in our lives is coming together with family or friends and enjoying a meal.

We look forward to serving you,

Bill and Donna
