Helpful service and suggestions, to customize the order to my taste. Excellent gelato & truffles. No seating inside, very small space. Hard to find...its the leftmost shop at the front of the complex.

Chocolate Tofino was a little hard to find since it is actually a Shack in a set back shopping area - with no paving, or real street front. Once we found it we bought a box of Chocolate sampler which wasn't anything special and actually had a waxy consistency on the outside of the chocolates. Variety was ok, lots of... More

Thank you for your honest feedback.We are thrilled you were so pleased with our freshly churned homemade gelato! We put a lot of love into our product and we're so happy you enjoyed it. We are puzzled and dismayed that you didn't enjoy our chocolates. Our fine, handcrafted chocolates have never been described as waxy, and we never use waxes... More

Cute little place tucked in a shopping center mostly catering to surfers. The gelato is very good. We especially liked the caramel and a chocolate with little chunks of brownies. Worth the calories!

We decided to stop at Chocolate Tofino for an ice cream after dinner. I had forgotten how wonderful a shop it was, both for perfect little truffles and absolutely delicious ice cream. I think my flavour was called Mocha Pecan. I am still dreaming about it!

Stopped by for a few chocolates and were welcomed by the greatest smell of melted chocolate and visually seeing the process was neat. Came back a second time for the salted caramel sundae-it was deeeelish but very filling, a definite shareable.

Small, quaint little shop with in house made ice cream (gelato) and chocolates. While we didn't get to try the chocolates, the ice cream was heaven.

What a cute and high quality find! Gelato, wow ;) The chocolate salty caramels, my favorite. A little effort needed to find them as they take up a small little corner of this hip plaza.

This is not a restaurant; it is a tiny ice cream and chocolate shop where everything is made on premises. On one visit, we had to wait while they made our waffle cones! As a result everything is fantastic. They will dip your cone in chocolate for an extra $.50 I especially liked the salted caramel ice cream. This quickly... More

We're staying right by the area that this little shop is in, and everyone has been telling us that we have to stop in for some gourmet chocolates and gelato. The place lived up to the hype! We bought a large container of freshly made chocolates with fillings such as lavender, mint, and wildberry buttercream (my favourite one). Yum! I... More
