77 Brock Ave
A gorgeous sunlit space houses our brand spanking new chocolate factory and cafe boutique. Eat chocolate, participate in a tasting ( coming again soon) or just come bask in the sun drinking hot chocolate with torched marshmallows. Be surrounded by the hums of the vintage chocolate machines making chocolate and the smells of cacao filling the air.
3 years ago David and I (hi there it's Cyn) bought a fix-me-upper bunker in Parkdale. After purchase and discovering almost everything structural was dangerously unstable, all the windows, 2 entire floors, exterior walls, roof and foundations were ripped out and rebuilt.
On the bright side the dream to design our own chocolate factory, from the dirt up has come true. After 3 years, with a combination of tears and rainbows finally opening up this very personal, beautiful space for you.
Cacao beans are made up of hundreds of different compounds so there’s a lot of science to delve into. In 15 years of handling these little guys we have built up a solid understanding of these precious beans and how to make them into chocolate. The factory is where the magic of chocolate making happens and where a variety of chocolate experiments are conducted. Visitors can watch the process unfold and sometimes if at the right moment taste chocolate before being released into the world.
The factory shop is open come for a visit to see, hear and smell chocolate being made. Where else can you shop and hang out in the middle of a working chocolate factory. There will also be in person tastings again. You can book individual spots or book a private tasting for your group.
- Streetcar stops at Dundas/Brock and Queen/Brock.
- You can lock your bike up to our iron fence in front. There are bike shares close by.
- There is metered parking across the street and some parking spots at the back of our building down the driveway.
