Located in the heart of Toronto’s distillery district sits one of the most beautiful chocolate boutique interiors you ever-did-see! As soon as you walk into the shop the profound smell of rich and earthy cocoa nibs hits you in the face. SOMA Chocolate located on 55 Mill Street is a Chocolate factory/lab/boutique and cafe all rolled into one beautiful and heavenly smelling space.
SOMA is one of the few artisan chocolate makers in North America that make chocolate in small batches directly from the cacao bean. You can actually see bags of cacao labelled by their country of origin stacked across the store and in the laboratory. They buy their beans from plantations around the world including Conacado from the Dominican Republic, organic Sambirano from Madagascar and others from Costa Rica, Panama and Papua New Guinea.
Visitors to SOMA become immersed in a world of chocolate and can see the workings of a micro-chocolate factory with viewing windows that showcase the chocolate makers busy making truffles, traditional Italian cookies and the shops signature drinking chocolate. Chocolate Freaks Rejoice!
