Looking for a chocolatier (Downtown T.O./Etobicoke)

Hi there,

Every Christmas I make up a gift basket for the staff at my local pub, and I just noticed that my go-to chocolatier (Richard's Fine Chocolates) has moved or closed shop. Can anyone recommend a spot ih either Etobicoke or the downtown area that's easily accessible by TTC? Bonus points if they make killer chocolate covered almonds.

Thanks in advance, Rob

  1. There's a few. Delight (Queens st. W & Junction). Cholateria (?) Roncesvalles. There's one in the Royal York ? Bloor area (name escapes me)

      You're probably thinking of Callebrut chocolates at the Dundas/Royal York area mall where the Brunos is located.

        Actually, that Dundas St. store hasn't been Callebaut for several years. It's now Daniel le Chocolat Belge. I sorely miss Callebaut in Toronto!

        I definitely second Delight in the Junction. They're located on Dundas, at High Park. They have great ice cream too.

          Second this. Soma has some of the best chocolate in town.

              Definitely +1 on Soma. IMHO far better than Sweet Olenka's. I work around the corner from King and Spadina and Soma moving into the area is definitely a mixed blessing. Yay for the amazing chocolate, not so good for the paycheque!

          1. Etobicoke: Sweet Olenka's on Lakeshore near Royal York!

            1. At Morroco chocolates in Yorkville, they have almonds covered in chocolate but they look exactly like olives in a lovely clear jar. They also have many wonderful regular chocolates.

              1. Stubbe Chocolate at Dupont & Christie.
