Mink Chocolates

Food in Downtown & West End

If chocolate is the main food group in your book, follow your candy-primed nose to this designer choccy shop in the downtown core. Select a handful of souvenir bonbons – little edible artworks embossed with prints of trees and coffee cups – then hit the drinks bar for the best velvety hot choc you've ever tasted. Then have another.

It's always a good idea to pick up a few souvenir chocolate bars for home while you're here, although it's likely you'll scoff them before they make it into your suitcase: ganache-filled key lime and high-tea varieties are superb.
