A chocolate experience like no other.

We are one of the very few professional chocolatier shops in Canada to offer an educational experience on-site.


Contact us directly to ask about upcoming booking opportunities for your group! Minimum 2 days notice required.


The 45 minute sessions are compromised primarily of a "sensory" based education, as you are guided through a tasting of multiple chocolate varieties: each demonstrating differences in percentage/cacao concentration, fermentation, roasting, region and other attributes which greatly distinguish one from the other.

We also use a visual aid to describe the process of making chocolate, beginning from when the cacao pods are first picked, to the point that the chocolate is turned into a bar.

Questions are encouraged as we move through the session.


Your tasting guide is both the head chocolatier, creative director and owner of the business

Having personally taken chocolate tastings and tours at cacao farms, I highly recommend a tasting/class for anyone who is even slightly curious or wanting to know more about how specialized cacao is. It is on par with wine - in how the growing regions, cacao varietals, fermentation processes all affect the end taste. *More on this in the experience provided.

Most recently having visited one of the world's most recognized cacao growers in Hawaii (may 2023) as well as meeting with other growers and chocolatiers in the region to educate myself on the varieties of cacao from these unique islands - my knowledge is always up to date and injected with personal experiences from which valuable information is drawn; to then be shared with those who visit for a tasting.


Tastings run from 10:00AM between Tuesday - Saturday, one session per week unless a private booking is made to fill all 10 attendee spaces. Then we will likely offer another.

Minimum 6 people are needed for a tasting to run.



CAD $15 per attendee.


To request a booking:

Use the contact page to send us a direct message, be sure to include how many people are attending, what date you would like to book for, any allergies.


Openings for chocolate tastings:


November: 9th, 11th, 17th, 24th.

December: none available.


We look forward to hearing from you and curating your unique chocolate experience!

Le Chocolatier Shipping Policy

Freshness guaranteed

With the freshest ingredients and chocolates made by hand, we recommend you eat your chocolates within 30 days of receiving your order. Although, let’s be serious, how hard is that?

Although we take every precaution to protect and pack your chocolates so they arrive in the same condition as they left our shop, our chocolates are perishable and once your order leaves our shop, we are not responsible for the condition of the order. Be mindful that when ordering during warm weather months, your order may melt if left outside in an area where heat could affect the chocolate.

For delicate chocolate items not listed in our website shop (those shown in our gallery), in-store pick up may be available. Please reach out through our contact page.

Many of our chocolates contain nuts, wheat, soy and dairy. Our chocolate shop is not nut-free, so our products may come into contact with peanuts, tree nuts and other allergens.

Canadian Shipping Policy

All orders are shipped or ready for pickup within 3 business days. For orders placed on holidays, weekends or days that we are closed (see our hours for details) those will be processed on the first business day following your order. Shipping charges for your order will be calculated and added at checkout. Shipping rates are based on your location and speed you have chosen (Standard or Express) Once your order is processed, we will send a confirmation email, and tracking numbers if those apply.

International Shipping

At present we do not offer US or International shipping.


Processing times may be delayed as we take all necessary COVID-19 precautions packaging your order in our shop. Our shipping providers are working within government restrictions and regulations, and many may have temporarily suspended money-back guarantees for late deliveries. If you feel a shipment has been lost beyond normal delays, please contact us.

Due to COVID-19 safety precautions and the nature of our products, we are unable to offer refunds or exchanges at this time.
