Returned for their amazing chocolate elixer. Honestly it is like nothing else on Earth. Imagine the world's finest chocolate liquidated to the perfect temperature and consistency for sumptuous sipping. Don't be fooled by the tiny 8oz cup. 1 is rich enough that you will be happy to share. I was smart enough this year to purchase some of the elixer... More

It's chocolate and any chocolate is chocolate at best but this place is magic. Stock up for your woman, she'll love you forever - I know I would.

Hand made chocolates and gelato, what a way to get an afternoon sugar fix. The chocolates were really good, especially the maple and lavender. Prices were good and service was excellent.

This place has great chocolate and ice cream. We wanted to go on a Sunday but they were closed, so we came back on Monday. I'm glad we did! We got truffles and they were SO good. Really friendly service, they even gave us a free chocolate. I want to go back.

This very small shop is busy with people making chocolate right before your eyes. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. We chose a variety of chocolates and enjoyed every single bite of these special treats. Yes, it is more expensive than your garden variety chocolate but it is all hand made on site so you are paying for that. We... More

ChocolateTofino is a tiny shop located about 4 km south of Tofino. Chocolates and gelato are made onsite. Both are expensive, but worth the expense. Try the salted caramels.

Very good chocolate, on par at least with some of the best artisan chocolate I have had. All the ingredients seem very fresh, and the flavours clean. The passion fruit hearts are tangy and tropical, strawberry starfish like fresh berries, chili truffles spicy that really builds and the Earl Grey truffle is the best representation of a tea in chocolate...
