- OUR STORY -
Tobermory Chocolate is a family-run chocolate shop and café founded by Keith and Rhoda Drake in 1991. Our gift shop initially occupied an old fisherman’s store behind the colourful Main Street of the picturesque harbour of Tobermory on the Island of Mull.
In the beginning, we only made dark chocolates, but over the years we have expanded our range to cater to all tastes. Today, we make dozens of milk, white and dark chocolates, with fondant, fudge, fruit and nut centres, bars, chocolate seafood shapes, as well as a range of delicious truffles.
All of our chocolates are tempered and hand-dipped on the premises and we continue to use the finest natural ingredients available.
In 2003 we moved from our first shop along the Main Street to our current location. We opened our café, ran children’s chocolate workshops and expanded our range of produce.
We are situated close to the local whisky distillery, overlooking the beach. From the cafe we regularly see otters and sometimes even porpoises and dolphins in Tobermory’s picturesque harbour. Many will also recognise our premises from the popular children’s television programme ‘Balamory’. We actually occupy the site of Edie McCredie’s garage.
Some of the houses have since been repainted but visitors can still recognise them. Tobermory Chocolate is painted a rich chocolate brown.
We are open all year round. Our café is a welcoming hub enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. A mug of hot chocolate and a slice of cake is just the thing to combat the winter weather. In the summertime we are regularly visited by day-trippers who have taken the ferry over from Oban.
If you’re coming to the Isle of Mull to see its stunning scenery, range of attractions and wildlife, come to bustling Tobermory where there are lots of things to do including children’s activities. Please drop in and pay us a visit. Our helpful and knowledgeable island team will be more than happy to serve you.
You can also order a chocolatey taste of Tobermory via our website and have them delivered to your home, or to friends and loved ones.
