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

    1. 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:!/pa...

      1. My favorites are Maitre Chocolatier and Chocolats de Chloe, in that order.

        1. has anyone tried the fancy swiss place on sherbrooke in westmount? they closed for a flood--demi-sous-sol location--and have now re-opened? j'ai leché la vitrine mais jamais gouter

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

            1. re: kpzoo

              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!

              1. re: bakersdelight

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


                1. re: kpzoo

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

                  1. re: BLM

                    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.

                2. re: bakersdelight

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

                  1. re: BLM

                    really? great! they're so gorgeous, would love to try.
                    i did try brimstone over the summer. nice place!

            2. I'm currently on the Francois Payard chocolates from NYC.
