Cacao 70 is a Montreal dessert chain that opened up its first location in Toronto a few months ago at the Distillery District. Everything on their menu involves chocolate. While I’ve been to the Cacao 70 in Montreal, I was uber excited when they open one in Toronto. I came here on three separate occasions.
The place was a little busy but N and I didn’t wait too long until our turn. We shared the Choco-Nut Waffle which is a classic waffle topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate drizzle, candied hazelnuts, served with fresh fruits.
There are so many types of hot chocolate on the menu which I definitely have to come back to try! We each received a warm cup of American Style Hot Chocolate (choice of milk, semi-sweet or dark) complimentary for moving tables, which we didn’t mind at all. We both love dark chocolate, so this drink really hit the spot on this cold evening. It was rich, not too sweet, and delicious!
On my next visit, J and I ordered a fondue set, Sweet Chocolate Experience for Two. What really caught my eye was the mini grill for the marshmallow!
Some girls and I were planning a girls brunch date and I suggested Cacao 70 as I wanted to try their brunch menu (available from 10am – 4pm). I was feeling something healthy and ordered the Vegetable Frittata which is like a quiche in a skillet but without the pastry. It came with a side of fresh fruits and of course, chocolate!
My friend H ordered the Illegal Chocolate Waffle. This comes with caramelized bananas, which is the star of this dish. Yummm.
Below, pictured at the top is the Lazy Breakfast (scrambled eggs, ham, sausage, bacon, potatoes, beans). Pictured bottom right is the Blue Mushroom Omelette (with onions, mushrooms, spinach, swiss cheese, potatoes). Both served with fresh fruit and melted chocolate!
Every item on the Cacao 70 menu, whether its desserts, drinks or brunch comes with some form of chocolate. You can also order chocolate that originates from different parts of the world. Overall, it is a great place to hang out and chat with friends. You can count on this place to satisfy your sweet tooth and chocolate cravings!
