About Us



the Honolulu Chocolate Company was a sweets and coffee cafe located in the Manoa Valley near the University of Hawaii campus started by Michael Cummins and Joe DiPaolis in 1987.

Michael, who had previously worked in the restaurant, bakery and chocolate business, and Joe, who had experience in merchandising and display, combined their talents with a desire to create the finest chocolates on the island.

This small start up business grew through hard work and determination, and is now located in the Ward Centre.

Michael Cummins and Joe DiPaolis have realized a dream, and are now Hawaii's largest and finest gourmet chocolate retailer.
