“A Must See, Must Eat, Choco-wonderland!”
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!”
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!”
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!

“This place is Not a Restaurant!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Surprised this is in the restaurant review section as it serves only coffee and chocolate. Disappointing.

Mercury Chocolates has been indeed been posted in the wrong section, but your
review of "terrible" for this is misplaced. Let us fix this grave misplaced business
error with a delish bon bon or espresso. ~ Mercury

“Wow!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This is the place to go for special chocolates. It's hard to do something new and exciting with chocolate, but this little shop has done it. Each chocolate is an artistic creation, looking like a metallic gemstone, or jelly, but one bite will tell you this is high quality chocolate with a range of interesting flavours - mint, blood orange, sea salt, and cabernet sauvignon to name a few. They ship. My partner has already declared his Christmas shopping done :)
