Overview
More
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.

After finding hardly any vegan offerings without substitutions in Quebec City, it was wonderful to find a shop that offers vegan desserts. The chocolate tofu ice cream was amazing. The dark chocolate pieces were extremely rich. The other non-vegan members of my family enjoyed the...More

Without a doubt, the best chocolate ice cream I've ever had. Period. The chocolates themselves were of course also delicious but the ice cream was to die for!

Every chocolate we bought at Erico was amazing. We meant to bring a good selection home for the kids but not much made it! Helpful, friendly staff, and an interesting mini-museum attached, where you can check out the history of chocolate.

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...More
