  • Fancy chocolates , nice macarons, they also serve a few different coffee drinks. Place is very clean. French owners
  • Very nice; I'd like to see a better selection; way over-priced.
  • Fine Chocolates AND certainly the finest French macarons in Halifax. $19/doz, nicely presented in a box and paper bag, that's the best deal in town.
  • Nice chocolate, good flavours of macaron but I found them a bit mushy.
  • This place is AH-MAZING. I moved to Halifax about a year ago, just down the street from Rousseau and I can't believe it took me almost a year to stop in. The store is pristine! It's so clean and inviting. In particular, it is really cool to see the chocolatier in his space working away at his craft. The owners/staff here are so nice and engaging and super helpful and knowledgeable. One of the owners told me their chocolatier is originally from the south of France + having travelled much of the south of France, it's my opinion that he's at the top of his trade anywhere. I've only been a few times but I have never been disappointed with the goods offered here. Everything is truly exceptional. Most notably, their Rochers Suisse chocolates and chocolate mousse (served on occasion - be sure to follow their Instagram account for updates). Unfortunately, it is a bit on the pricier side; however, it's worth every penny. I don't mind spending my money on quality + I like to support local businesses. As well, they support many other local businesses by purchasing ingredients locally. I highly, highly recommend treating yourself. Particularly for those coming to Halifax by way of cruise ship. It's super close to the port. I adore this place and can't wait to try everything on their menu!
