We like what we saw and heard from Fog City News owner Adam Smith and suave Chocolatier Michael Mischer today on our lunch break. Fog City News is a nice, clean space on Market Street offering high quality chocolates and confections with a vast assortment of worldly magazines. Today's event was the first in a series of Friday afternoon visits (12 noon to 2 p.m.) from well known chocolatiers, and happens again on December 8 (Lindy Martin) and 15th (John Scharffenberger, coincidentally on our birthday [] should draw a lot of folks).

Mischer's hand crafted truffles on sample were Hot Cinnamon (nice cayenne note) and Lebkuchen, which is gingerbread.

Today's top bon mots -- and lickable photos -- after the jump.

ed -- Happy birthday, SFist Mary!
