Update: It may have taken a little longer than expected — and, honestly, when isn't that the case when talking about a new restaurant or bar — but the fine folks behind Lilly Handmade Chocolates opened their new location in Old Brooklyn over the weekend after shuttering the original spot in Tremont in May in advance of the move.

Find them at 2032 W Schaaf Rd. and online. Hours: Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

(Original story 4/11/18): After exactly 10 years in Tremont, Lilly Handmade Chocolates (761 Starkweather Ave., 216-771-3333) is pulling up stakes and relocating to Old Brooklyn. The shop’s last day will be on May 25, followed by an anticipated July opening for the new home.

"It's wonderful," owner Joshua Montague says of the move. “We’re super excited.”

Along with wife and partner Amanda, the team will be moving into a former accountant’s office in a building from the 1930s. The South Hills neighborhood of Old Brooklyn also happens to be home for the Montagues.

The space (2032 W. Schaaf Rd.) will be smaller than the Tremont shop, with no seating. Also, the owners are doing away beer, wine and spirits so that they can focus solely on chocolates and confections. With an increased attention placed on wholesale and internet-based business, the owners decided to shift gears somewhat. But candy making will remain front and center at the new shop.

“When you walk in you’re going to be in our chocolate lab, so you’re going to be even closer to the action than you were here in Tremont,” says Joshua.

We'll keep you posted on opening day.
