Got a great tip off on our boat tour and we’re not disappointed by the iceacre at Chocolate Tofino. Worth a wee wait in line. Raspberry white chocolate, pistachio, Belgium chocolate and hammerhead were faves.

I love lavender — both the taste & the colour —so I was delighted to be told Chocolate Tofino (CT) makes a delicious lavender honey ice cream. But with this tasty tip came the challenge of how to procure this delight for my two grandchildren,...as they & I live in Uclulelet, Tofino’s non-identical twin 26 miles north. As we know, icecream is difficult to transport, so the circa 35-plus minute trip between the two ocean villages on Canada’s Wild West coast posed an icecream problem. It was solved when CT staffer, Jenn, told me CT offered a Picnic Pint— a pint of ice-cream which comes in a nice stainless steel flask, thereby keeping ice-cream from melting for some hours. Yay. Jenn was very helpful & knowledgeable, as I have found all CT staff & its owner, Kim, to be every time I have purchased from CT. It also sells delicious chocolates in imaginative shapes & a nice range of flavours. One on offer is a lavender truffle. One of its staffers, Serina, had once kindly delivered a range of chocolates to my Ukee — the name Ucluelet is affectional know as to locals — family’s door, when I placed an order when living in Vancouver. It may again be my luck she does that again for me, as she lives in Ukee. Thank you CT & Serina. The flask costs 34.95$ before tax & one gets the first pint of icecream on the house, as well as 1$ off each time one goes for a refill. What a great idea, something bound to be a winner. CT is open from 10 am to 6pm but will extend its hours into the evening with summer. One scoop of icecream in a waffle cone is 7.25$. Both the lavender & the honey is sourced from Vancouver Island & all is made in-house. Talking lavender, Tofino Kombucha has a great blueberry lavender raw organic drink. Posted by S FullerMore

Engage your senses. Creativity from a stunning chocolatier that creates their own proprietary/ secret gelato flavour is simply a delight. It's called 'Hammerhead", and it has a lovely texture and a hint of anise seed / fennel in there somewhere. The vegan coconut and oat...milk hot chocolate is fantastic on a cold sunny day. This place is a 10/10 must stop when hitting the beaches in Tofino. Your life is shorter than you think. Go here.More

Two in our group of four have compared gelatos everywhere they went in Italy. They highly approved with the gelato here. The other two of us have little experience, and also found it delicious enough to go back the next day.

We had gelato here . The place is very busy and there is a decent choice. We simply weren’t that impressed with the gelato. The Californian pistachio really lacked taste. Cost for 2 scoops $8. And for staff to ask for a tip when you...pay by credit card is a joke . Would not bother recommendingMore

The only thing I would say is that if you go here too often during your stay, your waistline will suffer. But then again hiking or surfing are a good way around that. Otherwise there is the most incredible hand made chocolate. My favorites are...the salted caramel and wonderful ice cream in the same flavor. The dark chocolates we prefer are abundant in many shapes. Too bad one vacation isn’t enough to try them all. A must, if you go anywhere near Tofino!More

My hubby and I stayed in Tofino for 2 weeks and had chocolate Tofino literally every couple days 🙈. Sorry not sorry. We travel to Tofino yearly and I look for to this the most as I don’t eat much ice cream back home. Thank...you for making the best gelato and chocolates I have ever had! I will now have to hike extra long and hard this summer to burn it all off but it was worth every bite 😂 Ps. Please make the s’mores gelato a permanent addition!! This one was insane!More

Delicious ice cream we ordered a honeycomb sundae which was nice and then a two-scoop tub of white chocolate raspberry and mint chocolate . The two scoop was quite large so if you want two flavours, i'd probably recommend asking for a half scoop as...this would be a good size. There was a queue for this- not sure it's worth the long but it's very tasty.More

We were with friends wanting to stop for a drink at the coffee shop which was in front of the Chocolate shop. But the coffee shop closed at 2 p.m. and we noticed signs for the Chocolate shop. So we decided to investigate and we...were glad we did. We asked if they did hot chocolate and what a treat! They make up three different sizes of hot chocolate using hot milk and elizir orbs of chocolate. So yummy! They have quite an array of chocolate items including loose chocolates and boxes of chocolates. Along with several flavors of ice cream. Because we came on Valentine's Day, they had several chocolate heart containers of small chocolates. We also tried three of their loose chocolates: Masala Chia, Blackberry Cream and Passion Fruit Cream. Excellent chocolates. We would love to stop here again.More
