Enter CocoaNymph on Vancouver’s west side and let the decadent aroma wash over you like a warm wave. With to-die-for chocolates and confections made on-site,CocoaNymph is as much a treat for the eye as it is for the tongue. The handcrafted cocoa creations come adorned with gorgeous garnishes like pink peppercorns, gold flecks and hand-painted hearts. And with fillings like biscuit flakes and honey, blackberry jelly, green tea and mint, cardamom and vanilla, each little square tastes as good as it looks.
With an open workspace and lounging area in front (perfect for sipping on a rich, creamy hot chocolate; choose from white, milk or dark), CocoaNymph has an inviting atmosphere that makes you feel a part of the chocolate-making process. One of the main features of the sweet boutique is a baby grand piano, which showcases many of CocoaNymph’s delectable offerings and whose keys are tickled daily by patrons.
If you can’t make it down to CocoaNymph’s little chocolate oasis in person — don’t despair! Just log on to their website to peruse the chocolatier’s full menu of luscious cocoa offerings. Choose a box of eight, 18 or 32, then flip through the menu and click on the treats you fancy until your box is full. Now that’s a net gain!
Average price: Box of eight: $15; box of 18: $30; box of 32: $50
