Best ice cream and chocolate!

This is where you should hang out for an unforgettable chocolate experience. Made right there, you can hand pick a selection of chocolates to take home and order a cone or sundae to have right away. Delicious!

Very tasty gelato and friendly service. Tried the bears claws and tut*** something. Both very good. Likely not our last time visiting this place before we leave at the end of the week.

I had the salted caramel gelato in a waffle cone that was dipped in chocolate and it was one of the most delicious things I have had in my life. Also, I bought a milk chocolate bar to enjoy later - yum!

We visited the small Chocolate Tofino location by Wildside Grill. There was a line extending outside the door. It appeared to be a very popular place, and the ice cream and gelato were quite good. I got a chuckle watching a young girl named Zoe, probably 6 or 7 years old, enthusiastically devouring her cone leaving ice cream all over... More

I don't know if I can say the girls there are nice, they kept recommending delicious treats to try and buy. I DID! I especially likes the bear claws and salted caramels. Everything is made in-house and is quite delish! Highly recommend!

Stopped in with friends but didn't expect to partake as I was toying with veganism. Much to my surprise, there were 2 egg and dairy free options. I had the chocolate coconut "ice cream" and it was delicious! The rest of my group had regular gelato - fabulous! All made on site. Amazing!

We got to try a few chocolates and our favorite was the Grand Marnier, delicious! Gelato was good but not what I expected for sure as it was more like regular ice cream to us. Not as creamy as some I've tried before.

Thank you for your review! We are thrilled that you tried our handcrafted chocolates, and loved our Award-Winning Grand Marnier Caramel! We are also happy you enjoyed the gelato. Gelato is an interesting product to make, as the distinction between gelato and ice cream is not well known. The main difference between gelato and ice cream is that gelato is... More

We dropped in the for ice cream one day - they will provide samples for you to try in case you're unsure of flavours. I had a white chocolate raspberry and hubby had chocolate/hazelnut. It was delish! I tried the espresso one but found the flavour was lacking. We also picked up some chocolates - a variety of flavours to... More

Thank you so much for your 5 star review! It means the world to us! We are so happy you enjoyed our handcrafted chocolates! You are right, the Organic Lavender Truffle is a unique flavour - a favourite among the locals! We use Organic Lavender florets from a little organic farm on Vancouver Island, and local honey as well! We... More
