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.

The museum was cute and free. The ice cream looks so good. The staff was helpful, nice and tourist/ Anglo friendly. I loved the chocolates that I purchased though it was a bit pricy. Still, worth it.

As well as selling chocolates, the shop sells cakes, ice creams and drinks, especially hot chocolate. There is a small museum of chocolate attached to the shop and entry is free.

The museum is adorable, but the real star here is the chocolate. I wish we could try all of the truffles but the ones we tried were just to die for. Vegans: try the vegan chocolate ice cream!
