Back in 2008, I did a round-up of local chocolatiers for Creative Loafing. Atlanta mainstay, Maison Robert, was included on the list. At the time, owners Robert and Patricia Deeb were located in a tiny house off of Peachtree Industrial with a limited assortment of chocolates. The couple recently moved their store to a spanking new location in Chamblee with plenty of room for an open production area, a case full of chocolates and many new products–including macarons, baguettes, desserts, croissants, and a limited lunch menu. The macarons and baguettes aren’t killing it for me. I still think Star Provisions has the best baguettes; and Alon’s has my favorite macarons in town. However, the chocolates are as good as ever, and I am slowly making my way through the desserts. The chocolate-based ones have been the best of the bunch. Lunch is next on my list.
