Known for his egg-shaped truffles, Joseph Schmidt Confections are fun, decadent and so very good. Truffle flavors are many, including the fun "Cherry Bomb." And one is more than enough -- at least at one time. If you want a classic truffle, with a slightly new look -- you can find Joseph Schmidt Confections between the Castro and Noe Valley. It's just a quick walk from the J Church & 16th St. stop.

Joseph Schmidt has some of the very best high quality chocolates in the city. I love their truffles and the designs are just truly beautiful, and the taste is even better. They also sell gift boxes that are great gifts to friends, or even to yourself!

I've read that they are now owned by Heresey's so let's hope quality doesn't fall.

The chocolate is amazingly tasty. The variety is wonderful and they usually have some very clever new chocolates in cute shapes. The only downside is that the staff basically ignores you until you ask for assistance and then condescendingly helps you. I'll still keep coming back for the chocolate.

Glistening chocolate bowls decorate the window displays, their sinewy airbrushed details of splashed color and various shaped designs all look more like fine porcelain than candy. Visiting this store on 16th street in SF gets a chocoholic upclose to thefamous chocolatier who produces a variety of special confections that can be found no where else.
Originally started here in 1983 on the edge of SF's Castro & Mission District, Founder Joseph Schmidt recently purchased an old bread bakery down the street and now churns out 10 million chocolate truffles a year. Many of his chocolates are sold through high end retail around the country, but this is the store that started it all.
Every one of his company's creations is an edible work of art - and are equally & deliciously packaged. Schmidt's secrets include the high quality ingredients that make the chocolates so tasty & beautiful.

The signature product is the egg-shaped truffles, which one can get here in various packaging .

I am a chocolate lover and was very happy with this place. It' s a bit pricy but they have a great selection of chocolates. They even have the meat chocolate which does not taste like meat at all. I've just heard the Hershey just bought
