A note to our friends & customers: 

We hope that everyone is okay, and finding ways to stay connected to friends and family. We are feeling incredibly fortunate to have each other, and to be able to spend time outside in the woods of Monhegan. During this COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve been thinking about our business, both in terms of the economic impact, and in terms of what we can do to be helpful.

If you, or someone you love, would find comfort and pleasure in a sweet taste of Monhegan, we’d like to offer free shipping on all mail orders until April 17, 2020. Use the code “comfort” at checkout.

We continue to maintain extreme hygiene and sanitation practices in our kitchen, and are following current CDC recommendations. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us at lanefchocolate@gmail.com.

We’re wishing you all the best. Take good care of each other.

Mandy & Dylan Metrano, La Nef Chocolate

Handmade with HEART
on Monhegan Island.

La Nef Chocolate was founded on Monhegan Island, Maine by Mandy and Dylan Metrano in the summer of 2018. Both are creators and appreciators of art in many forms. They are also committed to conservation and sustainability. They use biodegradable and recyclable packaging, and source high quality ingredients from local producers and distributors that deal in direct trade for fair treatment of farmers.  “Isle La Nef” was the name given to Monhegan in 1605 by the explorer Samuel de Champlain. 

La Nef is also committed to supporting the island community, its artists and local non-profits through partnerships and collaborations.
