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.

Erico does chocolate right! I don't usually use exclamation marks but this place deserves them. Not a huge selection of chocolates but what they do, they do to perfection! Only bought some of the dark chocolates and each one was fantastic. The four spice was my favorite, layer upon layer of flavors. I give them six stars!

The dark chocolate covered eclair with chocolate mousse filling had to be one of the best eclairs we have had anywhere in our travels. Spend some time in the adjoining museum and you may also get a chance to watch the chocolatiers working on their creations.

It's a nice little place but the chocolate is outstanding. We had a hot chocolate, a chocolate eclair pastry, we also bought a box of assorted chocolates and some chocolates on stick for kids. All delicious and great quality. Would definitely come back and recommend to anyone visiting Quebec.

After sampling your way through five different kinds of chocolate–dispensed from bubble gum machines–at the musee du chocolat, walk next door to the chocolatier to get lost in all things chocolate. Confections, drinking chocolate and some of the most amazing dark chocolate mousse ever are the highlights here. Fun for kids and grown-ups!

Hey, out there! I know there are a few of you. But really, who doesn't like chocolate? Founded in 1987, Erico was the inspiration of Eric Normand whose first goal was to make in small quantities the finest, handmade fudge in Quebec; but after only a few months and with the hiring of chocolatier Bernard Laloi, the fudge shop turned...

This is a tiny little shop. Very cute and it has a one room choc museum. I bought some chocolate there but haven't had time to taste it yet. I wish I had room to test out some of the desserts at the place. They looked quiet good.

Their chocolates are of the highest quality. many of them are off-the-beaten-path creations, perfect for people who want more than "the usual" and enjoy discovering new (and very successful) flavor and texture combinations.

Great place for a sweet tooth. The museum is small but interesting. I stopped in while I was on the way to go somewhere. I wouldn't recommend it as a special trip. But a great spot nonetheless.
