We stopped by Mercury Chocolates today, sat at the little bistro table and had some gorgeous gelato. We then chose handmade, hand picked and packaged individual chocolates to take home. Well! They were amazing. Very unique in appearance, texture and taste. Each one was a little treasure. We will be back each time we visit Port Hope. What a delight!

Well if you are in Port Hope and fancy a real coffee, don't miss out popping into Mercury Chocolates. Darren, the owner and master chocolatier knows his stuff and whatever mix of beans he is using it's wonderful. I went in just for a caffeine fix, but left with some of his marvellous cacao creations. Truly delightful experience.

Small little shop that is hidden on a quiet side street. There doesnt seem to be much selection but I recommend visiting as the selection that is available is quite unique. Beautifully made with brilliant colouring.. and tasty!

I found the shop by accident in June, 2016 and both my two children loved the Salted Caramel Chocolates and the Orange. I went back for a 2nd visit in July and had the Chili flavoured chocolates and some others will go back again. The chocolates are a work of art so colourful and unique.

The high quality of chocolate was apparent and the ganache centers were velvety smooth. Unfortunately the only distinction between the chocolates were the names, colours and aromas. All of the eleven chocolates tasted the same. I wish the weekend staff were more knowledgeable. I was disappointed by the lack of her ability to explain the differences between the chocolates. In...

This unassuming little shop is home to some of the most visually stunning chocolates I have ever seen. There are many, many different flavours available, so you will likely find something that you have never tried before. Believe me, each little masterpiece is worth its weight. No, it is not inexpensive but worth every penny - but be sure to... More

We stayed on the same street as Mercury and decided to drop in on the last day for a cup of coffee before we headed to the ViaRail station. It was a pleasant find and I must say that after our experience at Dreamers Cafe the previous evening, this place was much better. They make all their chocolates in house... More

Grazie. We're pleased you had a great experience at MERC. Our local building by-laws don't allow for seating in the shop so we offer Italian style take out caffe. It would be convenient to have a ramp at our entrance, but current Heritage and By-laws are too restrictive to this. In any case, see you again when you're in lovely... More
