50 Bloor St. W Map it!
Leonidas chocolates (or "pralines") are
imported from Belgium, and therefore
made in the pure Belgian style, with lots of
fresh cream fillings. Leonidas chocolates
are consistently good, and the
prices are quite reasonable for this quality
Our recommendation: the Manon, a layer
of chocolate ganache topped with a thick
layer of vanilla fresh cream, smothered in
white chocolate. Yummy!
Note: Leonidas has counters in some
department stores, for example in the
basement of The Bay at Yonge and Queen. There is also a
store at 5 Coady Ave in Leslieville on Queen East.

Chocolates to cry for.
In Vancouver we have remarkable chocolatiers (thomas hobbs, for one) but I have traveled the world over and Leonidas wins, hands down. On the streets of Belgium I watched to see where the visitors went for chocolate (Godiva) and where the locals went (Leonidas). There is a reason. Godiva is all marketing, Leonidas is all chocolate and ganache fillings. YUM! Even the no sugar added varieties are delicious. Go Leonidas, Go!!! Thankfully, Chocolate Planet (online) takes orders and delivers. Now to get a retail shop here....
@Daina Green, I do not know who told you that fairy tail but the founder of Godiva was NOT the brother from the founder of Leonidas. The founder from godiva was Joseph Draps and the founder from Leonidas is called Leonidas Kestekides. There is no way they can be brothers. Godiva is also NOT considered (any more) to be fine belgian chocolate.
