A good way to end a good meal after having lunch around the back at Wildside Grill and Tacofino. The shop is small but packed full of delicious goodness. We were stuffed from lunch so we just ordered a single (large) scoop of strawberry ice cream, which was more than enough to satisfy our sweat tooth.

We hit this joint more than once, unfortunately for my post-vacay weigh in. : ) The ice cream is truly delicious -- creamy, homemade-tasting and lots of flavors. The homemade waffle cones dipped in chocolate are awesome. And the house made chocolates are to-die for. The perfect post-Tacofino dessert stop!

The Sugar Shack is great, but we love Chocolate Tofino! The smell of the chocolate they're making drives you crazy as you wait for your order. We had the salted caramel sundae and it was heavenly!

Whether you need a little treat for yourself, or want some reasonably priced goodies to bring back to those at home, this is the place to stop! On this trip we bought a few individual (unique!!!!) chocolates and I also bought many of the "Chocolate Tofino" bars to bring home. (Discount if you get a box of 12). The creativity... More

Great chocolates, we sampled a few. Great gelato, the salted caramel and maple pecan were fantastic! Warm waffle cones! The staff is super nice. I enjoyed watching the ladies prepare the chocolates while I wanted. Great, local place. Bring your Wildside receipt for a discount!

Ice-cream was fine but we'd been spoiled by better in Vancouver. Celebrated salted caramel sundae was overly sweet and not salty enough. Mobbed by wasps!

Our hotel had given us a little treat from Chocolate Tofino but it wasn't enough and we had to make the trip to get a little more! The Salted Caramel Gelato is AMAZING! as well as the Earl Grey Chocolates! It is a tad pricey. For 2 cones, and 6 chocolates it was $26.00 but hey you are on vacation... More
