Dip in to these delicious fondue pots across Toronto

Those who enjoying playing with their food can’t help but gravitate towards this deliciously retro dish that encourages dipping, dunking and drizzling. Check out these Toronto restaurants firing up sweet and savoury fondue pots that’ll make you melt.

MoRoCo Chocolat

215 Madison Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 2S6

Yorkville’s upscale chocolate boutique and dessert lounge feels like a classic Parisian café with a sexy rock ’n’ roll twist. The dazzling interior features plush velvet seating, ornate light fixtures and opulent accents — an appropriately whimsical setting to enjoy an haute cocoa experience. Gourmet chocolate fondue pots (ideal for two to three people) are available in 66 per cent dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate and are attended by an array of seasonal fruit, marshmallows and bite-sized macarons.

Bier Markt King West

600 King St W, Toronto, ON M5V 1M3

With over 150 beers on the menu at this bustling European-style brasserie, it’s no surprise that the cheesy fondue is spiked with a healthy dose of ale. The rich lager fondue features a blend of Gruyere and Emmental cheeses and Stella Artois lager while the cider fondue is made with Brie de portneuf and La Sauvagine cheeses with Blackthorn cider. No one will blame you for scraping up every last morsel from the bottom of the pot.

Barberian's Steak House

7 Elm St, Toronto, ON M5G 1H1

This iconic restaurant might be known for its upscale steak dishes, but from 10 pm onwards, late-night diners enjoy an abbreviated after-theatre menu that features two sharing options for fondue fans. Dig in to a communal pot of classic cheese fondue or opt for the hearty beef fondue bourguignonne and fire up thinly sliced cuts of beef in hot oil. The latter is an upscale option rich in taste and in price at $95.

Beer Bistro

18 King St E, Toronto, ON M5C 1C4

The classic Après Ski snack is done in a traditional European fashion at this Financial District beer hall. The aged cheese and lager fondue bubbles over with a savoury blend of cheddar, Emmental and Hacker-Pschorr Edlhell lager from Munich. Even though there’s plenty of beer in the pot, there’s always room for a pint on the side; servers recommend pairing the cheesy fondue with a medium-bodied ale or lager.

Toronto’s frigid winter months were made for curling up with a warm mug of hot cocoa. Escape the chilly air inside these local cafés where the hot chocolate is sweet, spicy and sinfully delicious.
