Chocolatiers outside Montreal: our suggested addresses

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and chocolates always make excellent gifts for this occasion. Of course, it’s a good idea to think outside the box and choose products made in Quebec rather than encouraging multinationals that produce industrial chocolate. There are many artisanal chocolate makers in the province and their magnificent products have nothing to envy to the chocolate found on grocery store shelves. We are fortunate to have several excellent chocolate shops on the island of Montreal, such as État de Choc, Lecavalier-Pétrone and Les Chocolats de Chloé. However, there are a multitude of artisanal chocolate shops outside of Montreal that are worth discovering.

Whether it’s for a special occasion such as Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Halloween or Christmas, or simply to treat yourself while encouraging chocolate artisans, all reasons are good to visit them. In addition to finding delicious sweets, it is an opportunity to meet passionate people who are always happy to share their knowledge and expertise with their customers. This is another added value of local businesses!
