Besides importing perhaps the city's best selection of gourmet, exotic and single origin bars from places as far as Ghana, they also teach Chocolate 101 seminars, give informative tasting and pairing tips, and offer rentals of their sumptuous chocolate fountain.

The store formerly known as Monde Chocolat (Costco copyrighted their name) still carries a great selection of specialty sweets. Amedei chocolate from Tuscany? Sure. Zotter treats from Austria? Got ’em. Owner Hodie Rondeau’s truffle case includes international flavours—Azteca chipotle, Madagascar vanilla—based on recipes that go back five generations. You’ll meet all your baking needs with their... more

I came here with my boyfriend for a chocolate tasting class that we bought from Groupon. I have to say it was money well spent. The owner of the shop was the person that conducted the class and she was really friendly, informative, and funny. It was a brief casual chocolate tasting class but I had so much fun and her explanation about the different types of chocolate, where they come from, why... more

Pronounced "sho-sho-la", this friendly and inviting boutique is the city's premier destination for all things chocolate. Inspired by fine European chocolatiers, Xoxolat sources the best chocolate from around the world, including difficult-to-find brands such as Zotter. Their focus is on organic and fair-trade chocolate, and they import one of the largest selections of single-origin chocolate... more
