“This is the place.”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I have had hot chocolate in many places, both near and far. Nothing comes close the taste of the chocolate drinks that Cocoa West serves up. Whether you like your hot chocolate rich and creamy with a hint of cinnamon or with a bit extra to spice it, these are truly The Best you will find anywhere. The handmade, mostly organic(?) chocolates and truffles are far superior to any chocolate I have ever had. Cocoa West has definitely spoiled me, no other chocolate will do. Right now they have a robed sea salt caramel chocolate, its proving difficult to stay away from that one!

“A 'not to miss' treat!!!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Joanne and Carlos are an amazing couple who have created a world-renowned reputation for offering the best in organic chocolate treats. They have trained hundreds of wanna-be chocolatiers from every corner of the globe in their tiny Bowen Island headquarters. No holiday would be complete in our house without a Cocoa-West Santa, Valentines Heart, Easter Bunny or just a treat of Chocolate Nut Clusters (my personal favourite). They offer a selection of (I believe) SIX different Hot Chocolate delights. Again my favourite is the Hot Chocolate infused with Espresso!! What a combination!

“Don't miss this amazing chocolate”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

Tucked away on Artist Lane you don't want to miss it. The variety of chocolates that are available are wonderful and taste just as good. Don't miss their hand crafted bars as well - they are something you really want to take home.

If you need a break - don't forget to grab a delicious hot chocolate!

“Best Hot Chocolate I have tasted”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

I love these little shops that offer up something tasty. The truffles are exquisite and the hot chocolate was unlike anything you will find anywhere else. A must stop when visiting Bowen Island.

“Fabulous Bed and Chocolate”
Reviewed 21 September 2013

This was a delightful place! I walked across on the ferry and up to Artisan Square and checked into the very chic chocolate suite. It was lovely. Then I took a hike in Crippen Park, just down the road. I came back and relaxed in the room for a bit and took a shower under the rain head shower and walked down to snug cove for dinner. For dessert was the tasty chocolates left by the bedside. I had the best sleep in the super comfy bed and enjoyed a nice cup of tea while watching a DVD from the selection they offer. In the morning I went to the Artisan Café for breakfast and came back and cashed in my free coffee and cookie. The coffee was a mix of hot chocolate and coffee and was the best hot beverage I've ever experienced! I came home and told all my friends about it and will definitely be back for more.
