The Best Chocolate in Toronto

The best chocolate in Toronto comes via chocolatiers and dessert purveyors that take the art of cacao very seriously. Crave-worthy chocolate can be found all across the city in different styles, from hand-crafted Brazilian treats to Chinese syrup-filled bonbons.

Here's the best chocolate in Toronto.

ChocoSol

This environmentally-minded brand based in Corso Italia sources its organic cacao from forests in Mexico tended by Indigenous farmers. Their slow-ground and roasting technique gives their chocolate a distinctive flavour. It's no wonder their products are carried by stores all around the city.

Nadege Patisserie

As Toronto's most popular French patisserie, Nadege has four locations around the city, with a flagship on West Queen West. Chef Nadege Nourian has been making chocolate truffles since she was a kid, so it’s no surprise her recipes are amazing.

Sweet Olenka's on Queen

Gourmet chocolate comes in different shapes at this dessert shop with four Toronto locations. They may be best known for their ice cream but Sweet Olenka’s also does boxes of truffles made in-house and a cool collection of “rusted tool” dark chocolates.

This shop on Danforth East specializes in brigadeiro, a Brazilian chocolate made with condensed milk, cocoa, and butter. Single-origin cocoa beans are imported in to the shop and hand-rolled into these delightful balls of sweetness.

Soul Chocolate

Soul Chocolate

Small batch chocolate produced in the back of this little East Chinatown cafe is developed from scratch to create vegan bars. Each one is made up of just two ingredients: cacao and organic cane sugar, and they even offer chocolate shots, if you feel like drinking it too.


Stubbe Chocolate

Stubbe Chocolate

This shop near Bathurst and Dupont shop doles out a wide selection of truffles and chocolate bars from their open kitchen. Stubbe is run by Chef Daniel Stubbe, a sixth generation konditor (a specially qualified baker in European konditorei) so you know his stuff is no joke.

Onyx Chocolates

Onyx Chocolates

This artisanal chocolate shop operates out of the same space as Wong’s Ice Cream, which is apropos given both business’ penchant for fusing classic Asian flavours with sweets. You can build your own box of their incredibly colourful bon bons or try mi goreng- and black sesame yuzu-flavoured chocolate bars.
