This was a great chocolate shop featuring hand made chocolates on Commercial St. Unfortunately they are no longer in business at this location. I'm not sure if they've moved elsewhere or not. It's a great loss to the downtown community!

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.

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.
