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 were in Tofino with our two boys on vacation and stopped here every day! Such a quaint shop with huge character! The salted caramel ice cream is a must!... More

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. The servers were delightful and offered suggestions for dining that evening as well as one young lady had a family tradition of working in a favorite restaurant, Shelter, closer to... More

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!

On the recommendation of locals we tried this during our four day stay. There were about 16 flavours to choose from. Excellent gelato -- I had a sea salt caramel or something with a similar name. Chocolate dipped waffle cone was so fresh it was still slightly soft. The store is a bit small so there was a small lineup... More

Where do you start when the display case is full of chocolate. There is something to excite every taste from; sweet, salty, savoury, and sinful. A must stop!
