New Chocolate Cafe Is Cream Puff Heaven

A month ago Scout broke the good news that the “magic-makers at Beta5 Chocolates are on the cusp of a big-little move, expanding operations into the space right next door.” The expansion is nearly complete, and we just took a look inside…

Beta5 founders Adam Chandler and Jessica Rosinski showed me around the almost finished space at 413 Industrial Avenue (just east of Main Street) yesterday afternoon. It looks (and smells) like I imagined it would with 16 pastel pink and mint-coloured seats under an Omer Arbel light installation backdropped by an even more colourful mural. Under glass at the long counter are a bright selection of chocolates all perfectly lined up and neighbouring a formation of cream puffs that is truly the stuff dreams are made of. This is the first time Beta5 customers will be able to see such diversity of product – including chocolate bars and other treats – on display. (What they can’t see are the freezers full of Beta5’s signature ice cream sandwiches!) There’s good coffee too, with 49th Parallel supplying both the beans and the barista training.

Opening day is scheduled for this Saturday. Take a look inside…
