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.

I was pleasantly surprised to see a near empty cafe on a sunday. I tried the hot and iced choc on the recommendation from the staff. The hot choc was really rich and heavenly.. Surely the best i had ever. I could sit there for 2h just to finish the cuppa. Iced version wasnt that good iny opinion.

It is one of Chocobariums in the city apart from Koko Black, Ganache, Max Brenner amongst others. I often pop in for a Mocha when I am wanting a pick-me-up. They do the very best Mocha Coffee in the city. A lot of chocolate is placed into the base of a tall glass mug with coffee and chocolate on top.... More

One of my favourite hidden treats. Chokolait is slightly out of the way but is worth that extra minute or two to find. The owner makes the chocolates and designs the specialities, often in store. The hot chocolates are made with love and passion and always satisfy. From an afternoon hot chocolate and afternoon tea to a gift for a... More

This is not a restaurant or a bar but a chocolate shop, tho you can sit quite cosily (sometimes too cosily) either inside or outside in the Hub arcade & drink your hot chocolate drink or eat your chocolate (naturally) cake for morning or afternoon tea. Certainly not cheap, but the best hot chocolate I've had anywhere except maybe for... More
