Excellent Cappuccino and loved the grated chocolate

The ambience of this cafe is always good and the coffee great too. Love the extra grated chocolate provided which adds a touch of decedence to the drink.

Just before heading off to dinner on the weekend, some friends and I stopped in to Koko Black on Bunda St for a coffee before we ate. The service was terrific and the coffee was great. Koko black would be a perfect spot to do some people watching or meet friends before heading on to a movie at the very... More

We went to Koko Black on two occasions during our recent visit to Canberra. The cafe is conveniently located in the Canberra Centre complex, right next to many other popular eateries. This makes it very convenient for one to come here only for dessert or a post meal beverage. Our first visit to Koko Black was post dinner and we... More

My wife and I dropped in here for a morning pick me up and hit the jackpot. My wife's hot chocolate was to die for, while my coffee was as good as I have had anywhere in the world. Be warned, the Madagascan Chocolate Tart is so yummy and rich, it really should be shared. We will be back.

Ordered a hot chocolate here, got extremely sick from the milk used. They probably used milk that was out of date ,Need I say more? Service was also slow and overpriced! Would not recommend

Really liked the price and taste of the coffee. really good. Just didn't like getting the feeling of 'now-you-have-drunk-your-coffee-now-go' attitude. Shame about that because it was a nice quiet haven in a busy part of Canberra. Screw the nut guys.

For a valentine's day, the service was exceptional. I tried the Hazelnut Hot Chocolate and my friend fell in love with the Raspberry Chocolate Dome! Oh so yummy - a must-do (more than once is required)

Had 2 great cocoa drink here after dinner at the chinese restaurant opposite it. My brother strongly recommend this as it has soya cocoa drink which we can't see it in our country. Mum complain that it is sweet but I love it a lot.

mine was dark chocolate. Partner ordered soy. Some of best hot chocolate we have ever had. We shared a walnut and caramel escargot pastry. The pastry was just perfect. The hot chocolates were exquisitely decoratively decandently topped. A great experience. Great service and couldn't resist picking up a few chocolates to go.
