Located in the heart of Roselle, Maple Leaf Coffee Roasters brews up a delicious twist on your typical holiday shopping experience. Combining the aroma of freshly roasted coffee with exceptional gift options, a visit to this shop is a treat for the senses.

The shop's dazzling array of handcrafted chocolates and confections make it the ideal place to find sweet surprises for loved ones. The store is incredibly cozy with shelves featuring truffles, artisan bars, vegan chocolate and more. Support local makers while finding presents that reflect the charm and character of the region.
