Tel: 787 725 7744's insider take:

A Belgian native fell in love with a Puerto Rican beauty and moved to the island to marry her…and open a decadent, authentic European chocolate shop. At Belgian Delights, you'll find everything from coconut-dusted truffles to lemon-scented squares to molded dark-chocolate chickens. Wonderful homemade jams and syrups (try the local tamarind or the more classic cassis flavors) also make great take-home gifts. But don't be surprised if the shop is empty: Though they love coffee, Puerto Ricans aren't wild about chocolate. Which means all the more for those of us passing through!—Leigh Newman

Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 6 pm, Sundays 12 to 5 pm.
