The first thing that you will see when you walk in is the ‘World’s Largest Chocolate Fountain.’ Try to resist the urge to dive in…You not only get some delicious chocolate you get an experience.

If you are looking for high quality, single origin chocolate, Chocolate Uzma is the place for you. They also have yummy sipping chocolate- it is very rich and thick. If you love chocolate, you won’t be disappointed.

My family simply can’t get enough Mokaya in our lives. It’s our go-to for any celebrations that include exquisite, delicious desserts, as well as a great spot for gifts for chocolate lovers. On this chilly day in late December, we happily waited in line soon after opening to ensure that we’d be able to get our favorites. They tend to sell out quickly around the holidays!

The smell of buttery and freshly baked goods lingers around the storefront of JinJu Patisserie and is so alluring and welcoming…The bonbons were works of art, beautiful, small bite-sized but filled with punchy flavors.

These chocolates melt right off in your mouth, you can tell they are quality chocolates! The flavors are also very strong and distinct– my favorite was the one with praline. Not only that, the chocolates look beautiful and they have a huge selection of unique flavors to choose from.

On the way out we picked up a box of their award winning chocolate truffles that barely made it through the week. A few of my favourites were the BC Spruce, the Mango, and the Canelle Noisette.
