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.

Decent shop with a small museum on the side. The chocolate was yummy and museum interesting. Takes all of 15 minutes to get through so don't make a special trip.. easy walk from the old city.

This is a very interesting shop. We visited it twice, once on our own & then with a food tour. If you find yourself that far up Rue Saint Jean, it is worth a visit. Not really much of a museum, but interesting enough, none...More

After our visit to the Chocolaterie de l'Ile d'Orleans, we were intrigued about the one in Quebec City: Erico. Here too they do everything by hand. Quite delicious, I can say. Here too they have a museum, all about chocolate. However, their perspective is based...More

"Museum" probably brings up images of a stone building full of artifacts or art. Erico doesn't offer anything quite that grand. The museum is really just a store-front. But it's fun and interesting. And you'll only have to devote 10 minutes or so to browse...More

This spot was the last stop on the Tour Voir Quebec Food Tour -- tasty chocolates and an interesting little museum. We liked the dark chocolate with ginger.
