  • Motorists - there is no street parking along Jackson, but feel free to stop in front of the shop briefly if doing a curbside pickup. Additionally there is ample street parking on adjacent streets as well as several lots available. (More difficult on game days, however. We recommend transit at such times.)
  • Cyclists - there are several bike racks right outside the front door.
  • Transit / Pedestrians - nearly every bus travels through Pioneer Square. We are adjacent to the street car stop. Light rail is one block away.

Chocolate Maker and Chocolatier

From farmer to botanist to brewer to baker to chocolate maker, Chef Aaron Barthel's life has been an exploration of fine and simple things.  Starting as a confectioner of ganache for 12 years, he's expanded his passion to now focusing on small batches of craft chocolate from a roasted nib, developing the chocolate's flavor and texture in the mill. This gives him much more control over the tempered chocolate flavor experience.



At Intrigue we celebrate discovery and encourage the habit of exploration, enrichment, and enjoyment. We want you to feel nurtured, edified, and inspired to share your experiences with others. We hope to provide this to you through tasting experiences you can gift and share with coworkers, friends, and family.

Over the years we have expanded our passions from solely confection making to include craft chocolate making from a roasted nib. You can see this reflected in our evolution of products.
