Great selection of interesting flavours, customized to the town. Sizes vary so you can take home a big bar of your favourite or get a sampler box, if you can't make up your mind.

Stopped in for a coffee and found a great treat. Not only do these guys make an amazing coffee, the actually make their own chocolate... right from the beans! They have their chocolate production kitchen behind a huge window where you can see all the machinery at work. The coffee was great and the chocolate was spectacular.

If you like Tim Hortons and crapoy chocolate stay away. Great coffee and gelato The chocolate speaks for its self. Dark, strong, aromatic chocolate that's is not bitter is hard to find - well done & if you want some fun try the Gnarly Bar ....

This is the best chocolate you'll ever taste! Yes, expensive, but for a treat it is well worth it. The Mayan hot chocolate is superb also and the ice creams in summer are delicious and not so sweet. Owned and managed by a wonderful, friendly family!

This is more of a chocolate shop with great coffee than an actual restaurant. If you are happy with that, and not looking for lunch then you will love it. A huge glass window allows you to look in on the machines used to hand-make all the chocolates, one of the only place in North America to do so. Wife... More

Beanpod is mainly a coffee joint, which also offers a variety of handcrafted chocolate bars. The hot chocolate is amazing, as it is made fresh with real chocolate and milk/cream. This makes for an incredibly rich drink. The chocolate is also very delicious and it's interesting to look through the window in the back to see the chocolate processing room.... More

I was hesitant about returning here for an espresso. Had I blown it out of proportion how good it was the last time I had it. Good news, it was as good as before. The one letdown> I didn't get any gelato.

Decided to drop in here as there is not a lot of activity in Fernie outside of skiing or conventions. At $8 for a 70 gram bar, the chocolate just wasn't good enough to justify such a price.

Check out this small chocolate shop! We bought the taster box home to OZ and loved it! Wish we had bought more!

We recieved a couple of chocolate blocks from here as a gift - the dark salted chocolate and the mild chocolate with honey comb in it. We didn't really enjoy either. The dark chocolate was nice, but the chunks of salt in it were massive, and ruined the chocolate. They needed to be much smalled pieces of salt. I just... More
