With summer here, we'll be taking a bit of a break. During the month of August, our hours will be:
Tuesday - Saturday: 12 noon - 7 pm
Sundays & Mondays: Closed
In September, we'll be back to our regular hours of Tuesday-Saturday 11-7 and Sunday 12-5.
Our caramels are winners! We entered a caramel competition in California and won two Gold & one Bronze Medals. Woo hoo!
Award-winning Gem Chocolates is locally-owned and locally-operated in the Kerrisdale neighbourhood of Vancouver. We blend organic chocolate and fresh, natural ingredients together, creating flavours that will dance across your palate. Each chocolate is handcrafted in the traditional artisan method in small batches without preservatives. Generally we have 25+ varieties available on a given day, so there's something for everyone.
We use as many BC-grown fruits as we can access such as blueberries, cherries and raspberries for a locally-grown burst of flavour. In our chocolate lab, we create pure and true flavours without extracts or oils. Succumb to temptation and satisfy your chocolate urges with our chocolate creations!
What's happening today? We're making our açai & guaraná (Brazilian berries) infusion chocolates, aptly named "Amazon".
We also make a variety of vegan-friendly products, from dark chocolate bars (with and without inclusions) to candied fruits dipped in chocolate...and sorbetto, too!
Cool off with some flavourful gelato or sorbetto: mango, pistachio, sour cherry, toasted almond, dark chocolate, coconut, raspberry, stracciatella and blueberry...just to name a few to choose from. Cool off with an affogato (meaning "drowned" in Italian): your choice of gelato with espresso poured over the top...perfect for a hot summer day!
The best compliment and award we can receive is the return or referral of a customer and to hear how our chocolates gave them intense pleasure. We want our customers to love our chocolates as much as we do. Thank you to all our customers for your business, your referrals and loving fine chocolates!
