It’s time to turn up the heat with an irresistible invitation! 🌬️❄️  Brace yourself for a decadent and indulgent month as we proudly announce our participation in the 14th Annual Hot Chocolate Festival!!

We’re thrilled to share that not one, not two, but three of our locations—Robson, English Bay, and the Amazing Brentwood Mall — are joining the celebration of all things hot chocolate!

Introducing Our Irresistible Hot Chocolate Creations:



Sip your way to Northwest Italy’s hazelnut heartland with our “Amore Bello” hot chocolate.  It’s a delightful journey to the Langhe region of Piedmont, where the world’s most coveted Tonda Gentile hazelnuts thrive.   Rich and velvety Gianduja (chocolate/hazelnut) hot chocolate is crowned with a cloud-like whipped cream topping. A sprinkle of chopped Piemonte roasted hazelnuts adds that perfect crunch.

To accompany the drink, a mini cannoli with our Flower of Milk ‘Fior di Latte’ gelato piped inside.  Taste the love of Italy’s Piemonte Region in every sip.



Escape to the enchanting Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy, with our “Amalfi with Love” hot chocolate.  Crafted with Michel Cluizel’s Mangaro Plantation 71% dark chocolate with its mango and citrus notes, this velvety elixir is a journey to remember.  It’s crowned with a cloud of whipped cream, elegantly garnished with candied citrus fruit — all paying homage to the vibrant orchards of the Almafi Coast.  A delicate spray of “Italian blood orange mist” dances on top of the whipped cream, a sensory experience that will transport you to this coastal paradise.

On the side: to capture the essence of the Amalfi sun, we’ve added a lemon tart for that perfect tang.  Drink with the love of the Amalfi Coast with every delightful sip.



“Bubble-lato” invites you to savour a harmonious blend of cultures. We’ve taken the silky richness of Taiwanese tea and melded it with a medley of Michel Cluizel dark chocolates.  The result?  An extraordinary hot chocolate that transcends borders.  Crowned with a velvety whipped cream topping and adorned with boba garnish, every sip is an adventure.  

On the side, we’ve prepared an Italian pastry shell that cradles our exclusive Earl Grey Tea with brown boba sugar syrup.  It’s a delightful nod to everyone who holds bubble tea close to their hearts.
