One of the best on the Nanaimo Bar trail

I love Cherub's Nanaimo Bars, in the heart of downtown Nanaimo. I buy one and then go for a cappuccino and enjoy it slowly.

The chocolates are made by the owner right on site and they are very good. She also does an amazing Nanaimo Bar. Try the marchino cherry chocolates their my favorite.

This is a local chocolate shop with local chocolate. They have Nanaimo Bars and other specialty chocolate. We each had a piece of Lavender Earl Grey Chai chocolates and a chocolate covered Nanaimo Bar to share. The Nanaimo Bar was delicious and the other chocolates were very good. I would stop by again if in the area again.

We have a business partners on the Island and cam across Cherub chocolates on the Internet. The customer service was excellent with helping us select a wonderful gift and delivered the chocolates the same day! In our clients words : " I had to beat off the rest of the employees, the chocolates were amazing! "

Try their version of the Nanaimo Bar... I don't even typically go for those things because they are too sweet for me, but it was SO GOOD and just the right portion size. Lots of interesting flavors to choose from. Bars and individual truffles, chocolate dipped ginger, etc. I want to go back now. Right downtown. Friendly service.

With its downtown location, this shop selling homemade chocolate is a find. An array of delicious truffles, chocolate bars and other confections make it difficult to choose. An ideal place to create a delicious hostess gift.

Their claim to be "the best chocolate on Vancouver Island" may be valid. I have purchased chocolates for myself and friends in the past and recently purchased several of 5 different kinds of chocolates for a house party. Very popular! One Vancouver friend who considers herself a chocolate connoisseur said they were truly excellent. I can hardly wait to purchase... More

This is a real chocolate shop.Hand made in so many varieties that I could still be standing there going bankrupt. These are simply beautiful and the owner, I'm sorry I forget her name, once she realizes that you are into chocolate is an absolute delight(pun intended). She also comes up with delightful, inventive chocolates for special occasions. If you like... More

It was surprisingly frustrating to find a Nanaimo bar in Nanaimo! We finally pulled into a local hotel and asked for a recommendation, and kudos to the clerk for steering us to a great place. The proprietor was a bit standoffish at first, but she quickly warmed up as we began to order. We had to ask for the Nanaimo... More
