SOMA Chocolate

SOMA Chocolate

Toronto’s best-known brand for all things chocolate doesn’t just do hot chocolate, they do ‘drinking chocolate’, which just sounds so much fancier. Not be missed is their Mayan chocolate, at either their King West or Distillery locations.

This Montreal-based chain makes devouring all things chocolate a true experience. Head to their stores in the Distillery District or Queen West for different variations of this drink served in a goblet or loaded with marshmallows.

For the true sweet tooth is this soft serve ice cream chain with three different types of hot chocolate. Their salted caramel comes with an Oreo rim, though their cake batter and S’mores drinks are equally delicious.

Silky, dark creations can be found at this popular bakery located on Queen East and by Yonge and Lawrence. Each comes with hand-torched marshmallows that are lovingly dropped in with tongs.

The marshmallows at this bakery on Dundas West are particularly delicious. They’re all homemade, gooey, fluffy, and sweet, and they toast it right before your eyes. You can even add an espresso shot.

Run to this tiny yellow storefront on St. Clair West, where lies some truly wholesome drinking chocolate. Find flavours like Mayan Mocha, Oaxacan Cinnamon, and Vanilla Choco-latte. They retail the magical stuff in small, round pucks.

Small batch chocolate is all made in-house at this East Chinatown cafe. Their beautifully packaged bars are pretty, but so is their drinking chocolate, which comes in classic, peppermint, or Mayan-style.

Head inside this Distillery gallery to the Arena Coffee Bar, a Leafs-inspired cafe serving up Pilot coffee and specialty drinks. Among them, the King Clancy: a hot chocolate with maple syrup and whipped cream, in honour of a Maple Leafs player.
