What is better than a delectable piece of chocolate or an ice cream treat with all the trimmings? Barrhaven can now spoil themselves with these any time they like by visiting our one and only chocolate specialty store Chocolats Favoris! Located at 1055 Greenbank Rd in the new Highbury Park Mall, Chocolats Favoris offers so many wonderful chocolate and ice cream treats that it is sure to please everyone!
The first Chocolats Favoris store opened in Lauzon, Quebec in 1979 and they specialized primarily in making chocolate for Easter. Using European knowledge and expertise as their inspiration, the chocolate artisans began to develop more and more products. In 1996, their second store opened in Levis, Quebec with a new twist – ice cream dipped in real chocolate! From that point, two more stores opened in Quebec and then started into Ontario. What a treat for us!
Chocolats Favoris’ introduction to Barrhaven was somewhat chaotic but definitely showed what they are all about. The grand opening of the store was supposed to take place on September 22, 2018 – the day after the devastating tornadoes struck Ottawa and the surrounding areas. As most Barrhaven residents will remember, Larkin Park was set-up to feed families three hot meals for each day the power was out. Chocolats Favoris had piles and piles of chocolates ready for their grand opening but decided to move the opening and showed up at Larkin Park to offer everyone there a treat to try and put a smile on their faces! Truly a community supporter!
So take your family out for an exquisite ice cream treat or pick up your Valentine a special box of chocolates at our very own Chocolats Favoris!
