Yummy,

While staying in the area, we checked out this tiny spot, recommended for their ice cream. It's a bit tricky to find, but worth it. The waffle cones are freshly made (still a bit warm, in fact), as are their ice creams. Not a huge selection, but still something for everyone. I had the salted... read more

A tiny place but worth a visit. Buy individual fancy chocolates that they make right in the tiny store. Milk and dark are available and were very tasty. Can also buy ice cream which we didn't try.

My daughter bought a box of these handmade chocolates as a gift for me. I am a chocoholic and have tried chocolate from all over the world. These are arguably some of the best chocolates I've ever had. I sampled mostly the dark as these are my fave. I will definitely be looking for more of these beauties.

Stopped in on a rainy afternoon for a treat. If I hadn't read their website in advance, I probably wouldn't have made a purchase as the place is literally so tiny that only 2 customers can fit comfortably at a time. I knew in advance what I wanted to try, so was able to get in and out pretty quickly,... More

I have to say I'm a little puzzled by the glowing reviews on here. We bought some chocolates for ourselves, and then some as gifts, and then the gelato in waffle cones. I have to say I am fan of fresh made waffle cones and the gelato was good. The chocolates were also good but there was nothing outstanding about... More

Hello, we tried Chocolate Tofino for the second time this trip and it was totally worth it! Each piece is hand made to perfection and offers a different mouth watering experience. Totally recommended!

My wife and I went for gelato after eating lunch nearby. The gelato was excellent and my wife also got a chocolate "tortuga" (turtle). She took one bite and I was convinced that I had been replaced as the love of her life. We had to go back the next day to get more for the drive home.

You stand and marvel absorb and enjoy the flavours and textures wafting through the air. Surrounded by chocolates, gelato sand ideas for gifts, this tiny chocolate shop has a shopping mall of temptations.

I've only been here once, but I'm definitely coming back. I recommend it. And when people come in, they say : "omg!! it smells good in here".

My girlfriend and I picked a handful of assorted chocolates and shared them on the way home from Tofino. To die for! Highly regretful we had to share with each other as we wanted them all to ourselves!
