Cold winter day deserves a hot chokolait!

First visit after a friend insisted I MUST try the dark chilli chokolait.. and omg.. as much as I am not a fan of chocolate, this place is divine. I went there by myself and I loved my decision to stroll in just after 2pm on a weekday.. lovely and cosy. Go on an empty stomach, will help to finish... read more

Overpriced, overly sweet hot chocolate, unfriendly chinese cashier. It cost us in excess of 25 dollars for a cake, a hot chocolate and a latte. Unless you have too much money and a very sweet tooth, I do not suggest this place. The cashier did not smile, no thank you at the end of taking your money...... Will not return.

Amazing if you love chocolate! The food is so rich and so tasty, good service. It is a bit pricey ($10 per piece of cake, mousse etc) but it is worth a visit, make sure to come hungry. We tried the warm chocolate cake, the mousse, and the mousse cake, all amazing and we didn't leave a thing, but definitely... More

True to its name, Chokolait Hub makes proper chocolate cakes. It is how chocolate cake should be made. The cake was very rich and dark, and the serving was very generous. We tried the spicy hot chocolate as well. It was also very rich and creamy, just perfect. It's nice that you can select the level of spicyness to cater... More

Yum! Whilst a little expensive, you don't mind when on holidays to have a treat! The hot chocolate is divine but got quite sweet towards the end. The Chocolate Mousse cake was delicious!. Was a little hard to find but worth the effort! A wide range of delicate chocolates, cakes and drinks to choose from. A quaint chocolate café!

Stumbled into this chololate place while looking for coffee. Tried the "not so sweet" chocolate but still turned out extremely sweet. Tried the highly rated pavlova but found it ordinary. Pricey place. Only for the sweet tooth.

This place is a little hidden gem. Im glad we went there. They have pretty nice chocolate and chocolate drinks. Definitely worth stopping by.

Ordered the chili hot chocolate with spicy level of 8/10 - this is the bomb! It is very very rich and thick and full of chocolatey flavours, and the chili adds a real nice kick to balance out the richness of the chocolate. I'd say 8 is pretty decent to not over-power the chocolate and still get a hint of... More

This was one of my most frustrating experiences in Melbourne. I came here relatively full from my brunch, and had to limit myself to a single piece of cake. They have a really interesting selection and even if you get there hungry you are bound to want more that you can eat. Do note that everything ranges from relatively pricey... More

This is a small little treasure where the hot chocolate and fondue are to die for. Their hot shots to drink is so smooth and perfect sweetness.
