Open: Weekdays, 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Nadège Nourian is a fourth-generation pastry chef, born in Lyon, France, who opened the Nadège bakery in 2009. If you’re looking for French pastry with modern panache, this is the place. The Christmas-themed chocolates are adorable: check out this chocolate snowman! And if you need a decadent dessert, try their innovative selection of Yule Logs. You can drop by, or order ahead by calling.

Also available in Toronto’s PATH: the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, which will make you feel like a kid in a candy store. Just take a look at the chocolate covered marshmallows. They have Santa, snowmen and reindeer in a slim, stocking-sized package too.  

Sukoshi Market
Royal Bank Plaza, 200 Bay St.
Open: Weekdays, 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m.

If you’re looking to add some variety to your stocking, stop by Sukoshi Market in Royal Bank Plaza for an amazing selection of corner-store chocolates from Japan and Korea.

The classic Canadian chocolatier, Purdy’s has been offering boxes of chocolates since 1907. They have a full menu of stocking stuffers and if you’re looking for a vegan dark chocolate Santa, it’s the place to go. Purdy’s also has some great seasonal flavours like mandarin, and white spruce. The PATH connection helps you experience the seasonal flavours with the option of skipping the seasonal weather.

Nutcracker Sweet
Scotia Plaza, 40 King St. W.
Open: Weekdays, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.

If you’d rather a basket than a stocking, Nutcracker Sweet can help you out. Peppermint bark, gingerbread cookies and milk chocolate pretzels are just a few of the sweets on offer.
