The Best Chocolate in Toronto

The best chocolate in Toronto comes any way a chocolate-lover might want it: raw, dark, milk or white, as bars, bonbons, truffles and more. Following old European or even ancient Mesoamerican methods of chocolate-making, this is where to get the good stuff.

Here is the best chocolate in Toronto.


SOMA Chocolate

With a location in the Distillery District and another on King West (plus a Cacao Bean Lab), everything is done with the utmost care, from sourcing and roasting the cacao beans themselves to making the delicious truffles, bars, gelato and drinking chocolate.

Chocolates X Brandon Olsen

Also known as CXBO, this Brockton Village shop from chef Brandon Olsen (Toronto’s Willy Wonka) produces collections of gorgeous bonbons filled with creative flavour combos (think orange blossom & honey or sake & yuzu) that are edible works of art.

Nadege Patisserie (Rosedale)

Owned by a fourth-generation French pastry chef, these four patisseries around the city feature a variety of delectable, handmade chocolate bonbons and alphabetically themed chocolate tablets complete from A (almond) to Z (zest of citrus).

Stone-ground, organic, fair-trade cacao beans are used to make dairy-, gluten-, soy-, nut-, preservative- and additive-free, vegan chocolate at this socially conscious, bean-to-bar chocolate-maker on St. Clair Ave. W. Mexican drinking chocolate is another specialty.


MoRoCo Chocolat

MoRoCo Chocolat

Known for its beautifully decorated, handmade gourmet chocolate truffles (it also sells bars and sipping chocolate), the motto of this shop that moved from Yorkville to the Annex is “Let them eat cacao.”


Sweet Olenka's

Sweet Olenka's

It’s now also popular for its ice cream, but this confectioners mini-empire with four locations in the city started out just as a mom-and-pop joint in Etobicoke specializing in chocolate of all kinds, including bars, truffles and cakes, with vegan options as well.

Chocolateria

Chocolateria

A chocolate-loving former litigator opened up this sweet Roncesvalles store that’ll dip just about anything in chocolate – potato chips, jujubes, Oreos, pretzels...but there are also the more conventional barks, brittles and truffles here as well.


Stubbe Chocolate

Stubbe Chocolate

This family-run business has a chocolate-making history that goes back six generations. Marvel at the handmade truffles, bonbons, bars and chocolate-covered fruit and nuts at its Toronto location (there’s another one in Ottawa) on Dupont in the Annex.

Delight

Delight

Organic, fair-trade chocolate is used to make the handmade, hand-decorated truffles at this adorable shop in the Junction. Interesting combos, like grapefruit and chili truffles, or ones that pair dark chocolate with cheese, keep people coming back for more.
