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.

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.

Very good place for the chocolate cake and desert. we finished the dinner around st jean street. But we came here just for the desert. Not crazzy sweet , just enough . But I hope they could offer the tea .

Wonderful chocolates ! I wish I'd bought more to take home with me. I ate the last of it on the way home on the plane.

Stopped here with sister, niece and nephew. The museum, though small, is interesting and informative, with activities too. The chocolate shop is stocked and the chocolates are fantastic. Short walk outside the city walls.

The museum is a bit of a goof and not the main attraction. The main attraction is the silky chocolate. Be warned; this place emphasizes the flavor of chocolate, not sugar. For those used to even the vaunted Godiva, this is better. Imaginative. Delicious. Marvelous....More
