MaRoCo Chocolates – cute packaging
What is a trip to Toronto without going to a chocolatier?
I found MaRoCo Chocolate pretty unique and interesting. This Lavish designed lounge sparkles in a chic white and purple interior and is located in the fancy district of Yorkville.
All of their chocolates don’t contain any artificial ingredients or preservatives, which you can definitely taste in the truffles. They taste very fresh and rich and have unique flavors. My chocolate box of six, which I wisely picked, became home to the 70% Dark, Hazelnut, Mintjito, Chili-Head, Belle du jour, and Monkey in the Middle. (see attached a selection of their truffle menu). My favorite was the Monkey in the Middle because it incorporated Raspberry and Strawberry jam with organic peanut butter and it was a nice blend between fruit and chocolate. All the aromas and flavors of this smooth and rich texture come out once you finish chewing.
In addition to its intensive chocolate selection, MoRoCo offers a French inspired brunch menu just in case you feel like having a little snack before indulging into chocolate heaven.

As many of you know, I spent Memorial Day Weekend in Toronto, Canada. The trip was mainly because I helped my best friend find a dress for her wedding (yes, I am the maid of honor); however I wanted to see what Toronto has to offer in regards to food and mainly desserts. I was very surprised to find a lot of local restaurants, antique shops, and nice dessert places all with the focus of being one of a kind and using locally grown products.
If you ever find yourself wandering the streets of Toronto please check these places out.
Here is the one that stood out to me the most.
This little corner brunch place was one of my favorite places since they use food that is locally sourced. It’s located in the neighborhood of Riverdale, East Toronto.
It was just so cute and simple, yet loving and inviting. The menu is written down on a chalkboard wall, which makes its very easy to read and saves paper. The menu selection is small but don’t get scared they have something for everyone.
Lemon scones with Blueberry Jam at Hammersmiths
My favorite was the homemade pastries which are a must have. Just this past Sunday we had the lemon scones, which speak for themselves and are served with jam (not homemade jam unfortunately). I dived in to the smoked bacon omelet that was filled with white cheddar and served with delicious salad over a lemon dressing. I really enjoyed this place. More importantly, the cawfee was to die for on top of it. Not sure if I mentioned that I am a nut when it comes to coffee.
more to come…
