1620 West 3rd Avenue, Vancouver
Advice: Located just East of Burrard, close to Granville Island. Call them to enquire about their chocolate making classes.
One of life’s simple pleasures is chocolate and I always love to taste chocolate whether it is a new chocolate bar or liquid chocolate. I had been a fan of Greg Hook’s Chocolate Arts store ever since they had been located on 4th Avenue, their Pumpkin Truffle was a favourite every October. They recently relocated to a larger space a few blocks away and expanded, now you can have even more tasty fun visiting Chocolate Arts.
The spacious room is filled with white tables and red chairs to enjoy hot or cold liquid chocolate from the coffee bar, fine chocolate desserts or their house-made ice cream. In addition you will find a showcase counter filled with there speciality chocolates available to eat in or take home. They craft chocolates daily in small batches using the finest ingredients and their creations begin with the very best raw chocolate from producers in Belgium & France, many of which are single origin chocolates.
I had an Espresso along with a cold shot of their 70% Chocolate, I also had one of their Parmesan Crisps a mini chocolate bar with crispy parmesan made with fresh Les Amis Du Fromage Parmigiano Reggiano-Scelto & 61% dark chocolate.
This is a must visit spot for all chocolate lovers!
