BERNARD NOIR – Coal Harbor

I’m of the Piggy opinion that you can never have too many go-to spots for delicious treats. And “researching” new sweet spaces is a job that I won’t ever turn down. So when SocialShopper posted a deal for the newly opened Bernard Noir, I was quick to print my voucher. Very, very quick!

Located at 1270 West Pender Street in Coal Harbor this sweet café is open for business every day of the week except for Sunday. It only has a handful of seats but there are hundreds of chocolate boxes ready and willing to accompany you home. There are 4 world-class chocolate brands to choose from (Richart, Michel Cluizel, Castle Lauenstein and Bernard Noir) as well as fresh pastries, sandwiches and gourmet cups of hot chocolate. Did I mention that there are 1200 pieces of chocolate available at any given time? Trust me Piggies, spending your SocialShopper voucher will be the easiest thing you do all week!

Run by a welcoming husband and wife team – he’s in the front and she’s in the back – these two are all smiles and all passion. Add an acclaimed Master Chocolatier to the equation (the Bernard Noir chocolates are made off site 3 or 4 times a week) and you’ve got the key to everything indulgent.


During my visit I sampled a variety of items that you’ll see pictured on the left: a Double Baked Almond Croissant, an Authentic Belgian Waffle, a Vanilla Butter Tart with Organic Lemon Curd and a German Espresso Brownie.  And my favourite of all the goodies: a Fancy Chocolate Brownie topped with raspberries!

Yes, I shared. And yes, I followed my tasting session with a nap.

All in a day’s work, Piggies. Until next time …
