mink chocolate cafe

my new favorite place to take a break from work is called mink located on west hastings in downtown vancouver. mink not only makes the best cappuccino in town but their chocolate is gluten free too! mink has a modern atmosphere and specializes in espresso coffee and flavorful belgian chocolate. a mini chocolate also comes with every coffee…my favorite part!

while it is safe to assume that most specialty or handcrafted chocolate is gluten free, it is so important to always read ingredients and ask how the chocolate is made. most conventional chocolate will have gluten containing ingredients such as barley malt, or will have been made in a facility with wheat products.

mink makes their belgian chocolate in small batches by hand with no added preservatives. mink chocolates are also manufactured in a 100% peanut free facility.

chocolate bars come in various ganache filled, organic, dark, milk, white or solid varieties. each chocolate bar also has a unique name including ‘the fountain of youth’ (blueberries and goji berries), ‘the girls’ favorite’ (french hazelnut and almond praline), and ‘love potion’ (roasted banana, dark rum and lime in chocolate ganache). or there is always ‘open in case of emergency’ (fresh mint and kentucky bourbon in chocolate ganache). mink’s bonbons, by contrast, have a unique image on each piece that suggests its flavor.

there are only two chocolate varieties that are not gluten free, and these include the rice krispy smores bonbon (with the fire image), and the sporting life chocolate bar.

mink’s chocolates are excellent and make great gifts too. you can buy mink chocolate at their retail location at 863 west hastings or you can shop online, mink ships world wide! Robyn

I absolutely love Mink. Normally I would balk at a five dollar coffee but when you see real molten chocolate being poured into your cup...it seems all the more worth it. I love adding the Cinnamink to my mocha and the chocolate chai fog is heaven!
