    see this thread ... it revolves around 2, 3 places, Chloé, Grandbois and suite88, and other smaller shops.

      My personal favorites for taste and quality are Le Maitre Chocolatier, corner Sherbrooke & Guy and Gendron. Gendron does not have a shop, but you may contact them directly at 450-646-6001. You may also want to check out their facebook page:

            Swiss Master Chocolatier? I have - they were quite good but not extraordinary.

              yep, that's the one. i did see the price list thru the window--i think it's 5.95 for a single one, so thanks. at that price they darn well better be extraordinary!

                Have you tried Briimstone Chocolates at 5879 Sherbrooke W. in NDG? Really excellent, fresh handmade chocolates & fudge.

                  What do you like there(specific chocolates or fudges)? I just heard about them recently.

                    I haven't tried enough different chocolates there to get really specific with recommendations, but everything I've had has been good, including truffles (I forget what specific kinds I had), butter pecan fudge and 64% bittersweet baking chocolate.

                  I think you're wrong with the price. I got several of their chocolates. If it was that expensive, I would of noticed.

                For connoisseures of chocolates, definitely Douceurs du Marche (Atwater Market) and Les Chocolats de Chloe (546 Duluth) are the best places in Montreal.
