The selection of chocolates from cakes to objects to ice cream to desserts is commendable. It is relatively aesthetic and they keep the place clean. Bravo.

A very good selection of chocolates and candy and coffee and a very cool bakery and very good hard working staff who are always happy to serve their customers with smiles on their faces and 100% good customer service and a very clean place with...very good coronavirus safety policies and their owner Jordan has ran the place for over 25 yeas.More

Everything about this place is great. The baked goods are wonderful, of course. The lunch options are limited but very good indeed. The coffee is excellent. Well worth a visit.

I have ordered online twice now and not being in BC and trying to order without seeing things first hand is always tricky, but Hot Chocolates has been great to deal with and very helpful from a distance. At Christmas I ordered a loaded gift...basket to be delivered to my daughter and honestly I could not have been more impressed. The basket was absolutely loaded with beautiful chocolates, baking and other goodies. The kids were thrilled to receive this and couldn't believe how much stuff was inside - all delicious. I recently ordered a 30th birthday, socially distant, Tiramisu and was absolutely impressed with how beautiful it was and my daughter said it was scrumptious. Hot Chocolates has been wonderful to deal with online, their responses to inquiries is very good and I will continue to be a customer and hope to get there in person soon. I highly recommend.More

So you’re driving through Courtenay on Vancouver Island and you feel like a cup of coffee? You’re first instinct is to go to Timmies right? BIG MISTAKE! Hot Chocolates not only has superior coffee but they also offer fresh baked goods, all baked on site....Bread, pastries, ice cream and Gelato, chocolate truffles and peanut brittle, infused oils and vinegars, it’s all here. Come in, order, sit down and relax. No drive through here, just a great local cafe with a European feel that will leave you wanting more. If they rented rooms I’d live here.More

Hot chocolates have the best chocolate in town. The new Columbian chocolate is fabulous. White chocolate is so smooth.

I have come here for a variety of reasons - the specialty oils, the incredible baked goods..... and those chocolates! Most recently I am dropping in to buy some truffles or hot cocoa mix gift boxes. I never seem to run out of ideas for...treats when I walk in the door here!More

Hot chocolates is world class chocolate in our small town. Milk, Dark or white in truffles and interesting shapes for any occasion. Always a great treat or gift. Sharing the space is another treat of real, chewy, crumby texture bread and beautiful, tasty cakes for...special occasions. Nice to come for a scone and hot chocolate made with real chocolate shavings and a loaf of sunny hunny bread for later! A bonus is selection and tasting of oils and vinegars and local salt.More

Such a beautiful shop and so delicious! I can’t resist a stop anytime I’m in the area! Their dark chocolate chilli truffles are my favourite! Or maybe the see salt caramels!
