And of course before we left town we came back and got some chocolates for the road. Great Place. The... read more

Best gelato in Courtenay for sure. Not sure if they make their own or not but it is seriously top notch.

Yes, number one place in this category. Yum!!! My first introduction to Hot Chocolate is when a friend shared the fall time pumpkin treats. Yum!!! Then at Christmas mom treated us to a box of 24 chocolates. Sorry, Purdys move over. This one, mom and I visited, my first time to experience first hand. Before I had any chocolate I... More

If you love good food, and have a sweet tooth, this is the place for you. They make the most amazing chocolate goodies and deserts on the island! We can never leave Courtenay without stopping here!

Hot chocolates is not only a winner in delivering some of Canada's best chocolates, fudges and ice creams but is also an artisan bakery with flare. Jordan, co-owner, and his team excelled with their triple 3-layer chocolate cake, ordered to perfection for my parents 44th Anniversary BBQ. The cake delighted our guests with such culinary comments as heavenly, delicious, supreme,... More

Hot chocolates do have THE best chocolates I have ever indulged in anywhere in the world. Lingering flavours and really good chocolate (I prefer dark). There breads and pastries are also delicious. Highly recommend their apple bread. Hint: if they are out of a bread you want ask if they have any of it frozen -- they frequently do. Also... More

While I live in Courtenay, I am writing form Belgium where they are supposed to have the best. Not so, Hot Choclates is better. My wife is a chocoholic and... More
