Chocolate shop will open on Millwood beside Trace Manes

Avoca Chocolates will open in June at 850 Millwood Rd. at Rumsey Rd., the corner store beside Trace Manes Park. The successful business sells hand-made chocolates, ice cream and gelato. It has been operating at 176 Hampton Ave. beside the Second Cup on the corner of Danforth Ave since 2015. The new space was previously occupied by Today’s Menu which has now moved one door east on Millwood. Avoca Chocolates is run by a mother and daughter team who make the products on the premises. Simryn Fenby told The South Bayview Bulldog that she and her mother will add coffee to their offerings and have sitting for those who wish to stay a while. “We can’t serve coffee here because we’re beside Second Cup,” she said. The confectionery has had rave reviews on the Danforth and Ms Fenby, who spent much of her youth in Leaside, is hoping the second Avoca Chocolates will be similarly received.
