Previously there were large construction walls surrounding the restaurant, but now they have been removed and the building is now just partitioned off by a simple barricade.

The building has a very steampunk feel to it with lots of aesthetics inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery including metal finishes, rivets, bolts, and gears.

If this is like the other Toothsome locations, this area will be where guests can purchase gourmet chocolates, fudge, freshly baked cookies, and other sweet treats. Guests will also be able to purchase Toothsome Chocolate Emporium-themed merchandise here as well.

Some shakes that have been offered in the past include a Marshmallow Crisp shake that has vanilla ice cream, rice crispies, marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, and a Rice Krispy treat precariously balanced on top.
