Overview
More
A creative chocolate shop and an informative small chocolate museum where visitors can learn about the history of chocolate. The Chocolate Museum is free, self guided and displays more than 200 artifacts and objects related to chocolate history. All the displays now have their English version. Two video are presented (Artisan Chocolate Making and the Industrial Chocolate Making Process (French), from the cocoa tree to the chocolate bar). Watch the chocolatiers at work through a window while you try one of our 10 renowned hot chocolates. In the boutique, the chocolate lovers will find a great variety of classic and audacious handmade chocolates (try the Biquette, a chocolate with goat cheese and Bartlett pear puree!). Indulge yourself with one of our chocolate pastries (chocolate brownies, cookies, cupcakes and decadent chocolate cake) and during the summer, let yourself be tempted by one of the 69 homemade ice cream, sorbet, frozen yogourt and tofu offered! Érico is located in the Faubourg Saint-Jean Baptiste, a convivial part of the city, outside the touristic old walls, that is worth the visit.

So... when traveling with young kids, you need to have a few places up your sleeve to entice (aka bribe) them back to happiness, especially if their parents like to go on long hikes and enjoy museums... We finished our hike through Abraham’s Field and...More

Dreamy creamy delicious chocolate. All handmade in-house. I haven't visited yet (I will!) but my colleague brought back a few samples for me to taste. A very good friend! Among the best I've ever had.

We spent a really pleasant couple of hours at this museum, followed by delicious hot chocolate. Not a huge number of exhibits but enough to hold your attention and some really interesting chocolate-related facts. The interactive display, while aimed at kids, is also fun for...More
