A very small shop, but good chocolates. You can watch them make some. They are good at taking the time to tell you about all the local ingredients and how they are all handmade. They also have ice-cream, gelato and sundaes. The sundaes are cute, they come with a handmade chocolate surf board stuck in them

Try the salted caramel ice cream, it's terrific!!! We also had the maple pecan, that was really good too! It's just a small place off the highway! Very busy!

Chocolate Tofino is a must stop for any visit to Tofino, they have the best chocolate ever, so delicious, and the ice cream is great too. The people here are the nicest and they always chat with us and see how our trip has been. We even had our wedding cake and favors from Chocolate Tofino when we got married... More

The gelato was so good. I really enjoyed the mint, chocolate chip. The chocolate candy was also to die for. We took more home!

Yum! Great flavors. Creamy and delicious. What more can you say about ice cream? I think I'd try the salted caramel ice cream sundae next time.

We all enjoyed the varied and delicious gelato offerings in the ice cream freezer as you arrive - one special favorite was the honey lavender, but mine was chocolate hazelnut.

My wife had the honey lavender ice cream and I had a few of the truffles. It is certainly worth a visit on your way in or out of town. You can watch them make chocolate while you order.

Everything is homemade right there and it honestly tastes better than any gelato ever. Try the chocolate hazelnut or Belgian chocolate mint. Both are heavenly!
