Stopped on a bike trip and was told we had to have a frog from Haigh's. Boy was that advice right! Had milk and dark chocolate frogs and bought some to take home for Easter. Store was busy and friendly, and everything called my name! Any location will have what you want.

My closest Haighs is 400 kilometres away so when I visit Adelaide or Melbourne I always make sure to visit and stock up. It is pricey however I would rather pay for the gorgeous quality than everyday stuff. I have medical treatment in Melbourne on a regular basis and my specialist is just across the road from this store so... More

If you are fortunate to stumble upon the Block Arcade in Melbourne make sure you stop by Haigh’s Chocolates. What’s not to love? Its chocolates! Haigh’s came recommended to us by a local friend. Once inside the store, there are so many choices it is almost overwhelming. You’ll also find yourself pretending to be indecisive when sampling the chocolates from... More

Lovely setting, including outdoor area in the back of the property. With every cuppa, you get to pick 1 chocolate from their vast selection. Their gift packs are nicely presented. They have a selection of light lunch options-quiches and such

Haig's chocolate is the best chocolate in anyone's language. Its silky smooth texture and creamy rich coco flovour are simply irresistible. The only problem is that I can't get enough of it !

Gorgeous shop, nice staff, cool location, free samples--and chocolate that tastes like it came from the super market shelf--not worth $60/lb

My neighbours love Haigh Chocolates and we always find a local store when in Melbourne as a thank you to our neighbours.

Haighs are everywhere in Melbourne. I visited their shop fronts in the Block Arcade and on Swanston Walk. The staff are super friendly and the chocolate is decent. The staff offer samples to those who make a purchase. The dark chocolate covered macadamia were yummo. I purchased the chocolate sauce and raspberry sauce combo for a gift (it was about... More

The stores in Rundle mall and Greenhills street were both packed when we went. There were long queues in spite of the number of cashiers. Go if you have the time and patience but found it a deeply unpleasant experience overall. Only to be expected the week before Easter, perhaps.

I've been shopping at Haigh's Chocolates for as long as I remember. There's always something new to try. The problem for a chocoholic is not to linger for too long, as the choice is amazing, the smell intoxicating and I always buy more than I intended.
