    Stubbe's chocolates on Dupont at Christie. Can't go wrong.

      SOMA in the distillery district. Beautiful and delicious!

        mrbozo,
        what style of chocolates are you looking for?
        another good chocolatier is JS Bonbons.

          Not sure exactly what style. I'm looking to give a little gift.

        Simone Marie is the BEST in Toronto (read: authentic Belgian Chocolate, Marzipan, and Truffles). It is a tiny bit less expensive than Soma. And more importantly twice as delicious!

        Why is it the BEST? I am happy you asked... The chocolate is neither of the too sticky sweet variety (think all those poser truffle counters) nor of the bitter / too much cocoa gives you a headache type (this puts Soma in the Distillery District at rank #2 or #3). It is still VERY rich VERY chocolate and MOST delicious.

        Simone Marie
        126 Cumberland St.
        Yorkville

        (Box of 6 for less than $9... and worth every penny)

          There is a pretty good list to be found in this recent thread that I started:

          In my search, I tried a bunch of places and would give my vote to JS Bon Bons for the best chocolates and best variety of chocolates, though SOMA has a wider variety of "chocolate stuff" and is very good.
