Little shop that sells homemade gelato with local ingredients. I had the lavender honey gelato and it was amazing. We also bought a few little chocolates and they were also delicious. My fiancé went back two more times (we were only there for 7 nights lol)

Dive into the delicious gelato! Great chocolate desserts, but can be a bit too much with the heat. Well worth a taste or two, though.

Especially the raspberry flavor and the salted caramel. If you bike in and out of the place you can feel less guilty about the calories.

I had the salted caramel and it was phenomenal!!! The service was friendly and fairly quick. Prices are reasonable. My only complaint would be how small the entryway is. It can be pretty cramped when a line forms.

We stopped in Chocolate Tofino because someone recommended it and were pleasantly surprised. We all loved the gelato ice cream (had to come back two days in a row for it). They kids enjoyed seeing how they made the chocolate on site. A tiny shop with lots to offer. Don't miss this place!

Located in a cool area of Tofino, but it's mainly like any other ice cream shop except is way smaller and had only one cooler selection for gelato/sorbet.

Chocolate Tofino is a small place that makes chocolates and deserts on the premises. They also sell ice cream. They use high quality ingredients and produce in small batches. The dark chocolate and almond bear claws were my favorite. Go early when you get to Tofino and buy some chocolate to enjoy during your stay. The prices are not cheap... More

This place makes their own ice cream and chocolates... Absolutely divine! You can taste the quality and the staff are great. Stock up on the blackberry buttercream truffles... I am still thinking about these... Amazing!!! The place is about 3-4km from Tofino, not far from Mackenzie beach. I walked over from Tofino so it wasn't too far :)
