“Mercury makes my soul sing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

I adore Mercury Chocolates not only because they have exquisite chocolate and coffee but because they make us feel welcome. You can feel the passion and love that goes into the handcrafted wares and the customers are treated as honoured guests. Wonderful, non-assuming little shop/café in charming Port Hope. As a mother, I consider it an essential part of my children's education to learn how to enjoy the finer things in life. My litmus test: when I walk into Mercury my souls sings. Love you guys! Keep up the great work and thanks for being there for us. XOXOXO

“You don't have to be a chocoholic to love good chocolate!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

We aren't big consumers of chocolate but when we do indulge, *good*, handmade chocolate is our preference. That's exactly what you'll get at Mercury Chocolates. Not only is it handmade, Darren's creations are also works of art. Every morsel is unique.

Mercury Chocolates make great gifts. A box of six or box of four hung on a bottle of wine make wonderful hostess gifts. Darren will also help you match the right wine and chocolate. Oh, and try one of their cheesecakes!

Port Hope has a lot going for it and Mercury Chocolates is definitely one of the treats... in more ways than one.

“A Must See, Must Eat, Choco-wonderland!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

A visit to 24 John Street in Port Hope is an absolute must if you are at all interested in quality barista-made speciality coffees AND hand-made, artisan chocolates....edible art at its finest!

There's a small table for sitting and enjoying your treats outside in the warmer months and Mercury Chocolates is a gourmet "grab and go" otherwise.

Not to be missed - your senses will thank you!

“This gem is in the right place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Chocolate and gelato are each a food group aren't they? This gem of a take-out most certainly belongs here.

“Chocolate works of art!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I missed this gem of a place when I visited Port Hope on the Theatre Package mid June
so dropped by this time as it was close to the Carlyle Bistro where we ate lunch (review to follow).

The chocolates looked so tempting in their beautiful colours & being reasonably priced at 6 for $10.00 I bought some. They were delish!
