Have some buddies in Toronto who love chocolate? Well, we’ve got great news for you.
Cacao 70 has been satisfying the sweet tooth’s of local chocolate lovers for years; with their cozy and friendly atmospheres and out-of-this-world desserts, they’ve become known for their premium chocolates and always having a full house. And, according to Notable, they’ll soon be providing the same for Toronto’s residents as well. Montreal’s beloved dessert-focused eatery is opening a new location at 28 Gristmill Lane in Toronto’s history Distillery District.
Specializing in chocolatey desserts, Cacao 70 is perhaps best known for having superior hot chocolate game. With 15 varieties—including some that are spiked for those feeling extra adventurous—they’ve pretty much stolen the show when it comes to hot chocolate bars in our city, and now they’re looking to do the same in Toronto.
Your T.O. friends can also look forward to a lot more exotic desserts than just hot chocolate. As Notable reports: “Think grilled marshmallows, triple chocolate pizza, banana split waffle, flaming turtle chocolate fondue, and more.” Triple… Chocolate… Pizza. Yes. They’ve got a great variety of non-dessert dishes on their brunch menu as well, ranging from sandwiches to omelettes. But in our opinion, the sweet stuff is what they do best and when it comes to brunch, it’s really all about their crêpes.
Cacao 70 is following in the footsteps of quite a few other Montreal-based businesses who’ve expanded to Toronto (both Frank and Oak and Apt 200 have opened up shop on Queen Street) and we’re sure they’ll have no trouble finding success away from home as well. We’re proud to see Montreal being represented in one of Toronto’s most historic districts and encourage you to go check out the store for a little piece of home the next time you’re in town.
