Ottawa has plenty of great chocolate shops but none can quite rival the unique flavours that you’ll find at Alicja Confections, on the third level of CF Rideau Centre.
They offer handmade chocolates and sweets, all made in their Bank Street location and delivered fresh to Downtown Rideau. The number one top selling item is the Postcard Chocolate Bar, which you can actually send in the mail. This Christmas, they’ve even made a Postcard Chocolate Bar Advent Calendar and Taster Pack, including 25 different flavours. What a brilliant way to try every single bar!
Alicja Buchowicz, co-owner, manager and expert chocolatier, started the business back in December of 2015 with a small Etsy page and a strong need for a creative outlet. She counts the opening here in Downtown Rideau as one of her best days, saying how truly welcome they felt right from the very beginning.
Flavours from all over the world are featured, as travel is a big inspiration for Alicja and Nick, her partner in life and chocolate. They love, and encourage, customer flavour suggestions, often getting ideas they would’ve never come up with.
Customer favourites include the Słodka sól Postcard Chocolate Bar, milk chocolate with crunchy toffee and Himalayan salt, and the Miso Curry Bon Bon. Though if asked at another time of the year we will likely get a different answer since the choices vary. Vegans need not despair, they have plenty to offer you.
On November 15, they launched their newest product, Chocolate Discs. Think of them as fancy gourmet nut clusters. We can’t wait to see what they dream up next!
