A creative chocolate shop and an informative small chocolate museum where visitors can learn about the history of chocolate. The Chocolate Museum is free, self guided and displays more than 200 artifacts and objects related to chocolate history. All the displays now have their English version. Two video are presented (Artisan Chocolate Making and the Industrial Chocolate Making Process (French), from the cocoa tree to the chocolate bar). Watch the chocolatiers at work through a window while you try one of our 10 renowned hot chocolates. In the boutique, the chocolate lovers will find a great variety of classic and audacious handmade chocolates (try the Biquette, a chocolate with goat cheese and Bartlett pear puree!). Indulge yourself with one of our chocolate pastries (chocolate brownies, cookies, cupcakes and decadent chocolate cake) and during the summer, let yourself be tempted by one of the 69 homemade ice cream, sorbet, frozen yogourt and tofu offered! Érico is located in the Faubourg Saint-Jean Baptiste, a convivial part of the city, outside the touristic old walls, that is worth the visit.

The museum takes you on a short journey from the discovery of chocolate by the Incas and Mayas to its use in today's shops. And the chocolate they make here is great. You have to try one of their dipped cones.

The small batch ice cream steals the show. Creative flavors with richness and depth. Also had a dark chocolate brownie which was quite possibly the best I've ever had.

On a warm June evening, we stopped by Erico Choco musée for ice cream. The service was fine, as was the ice cream. (The ice cream is served in cones with special cups to keep the melting ice cream from dripping on your fingers.) Check...More

Are you kidding me? A museum devoted to my favorite food?? The museum is a bit on the old side, but seriously, I wasn't there for the education! I wanted CHOCOLATE!

I got the Erico 100% chocolate ice cream flavor. It was rich and creamy - almost gooey. It had little crunchy bits of cocoa. It wasn't too sweet which I liked. They accent your ice cream with one of their chocolate drops. :) It's nice...More

Decent shop with a small museum on the side. The chocolate was yummy and museum interesting. Takes all of 15 minutes to get through so don't make a special trip.. easy walk from the old city.

This is a very interesting shop. We visited it twice, once on our own & then with a food tour. If you find yourself that far up Rue Saint Jean, it is worth a visit. Not really much of a museum, but interesting enough, none...More
