During our trip we went to the cafe at Circular Quay twice. I only had the hot chocolate once and compared it to another place and it stood out above the rest. I even inquired if I could buy some to take back with me but they didn't sell a drinking chocolate product. My husband also enjoyed their coffee compared... More

So, I'm over 60. So, I'm trying to control my weight. But I still did this and I am glad. I had a delicious iced chocolate drink twice at Guylian Cafes in Sydney: once on the Circular Quay and then at one located in The Rocks. Yes, it was decadent. And yes, I'd do it again! Superb! Just do it!

If you read my opera house review you will know that we were quite Hungary after the show. Found this cafe wow if you like chocolate this is the place to visit. I had Peppermint chocolate drink + Waffle felt a little guilty but wow it was great.

The cakes in Guylian are OK, but for the price, I would expert better service. I went twice: the first time, I ordered a hot chocolate and was given a soy hot chocolate instead. The second time, I had to wait 10 minutes for a cappuccino to take away, and it was cold when they finished preparing it. I had... More

Went back the next night and had a lemon tart and another latte. This time we had table service at their outdoor patio. I wish now... More

The hot chocolate was good and tasty, though the extra piece of chocolate was unnecessary. The lemon tart and friande were enjoyed by our guests. Then it happened. I paid the bill with a $50 note, and would have given a tip from the change. I waited for the change. And waited. After 5 minutes, I walked towards the cash... More

We ate at Darling Harbour which I couldn't find in TA. Stopped for dessert one balmy night & I have to say it was absolutely beautiful. We had the waffles & dip & fruit. Topped off by an amazing Hot Chocolate. I would say it was pretty pricey but very nice. If you have small kids this would be a... More

This is the kind of cafe that you come to once in a while to spoil yourself as the chocolates and desserts are quite dear. I indulged in a hot chocolate with coconut and was very surprised when it came out with actual toasted coconut in the cup and I had to pour the hot choc myself. I loved it... More
