Takeaway

Not a great atmosphere to sit for long so we got a takeaway. It was delicious, similar to Max Brenner, but not as thick. Very popular - big queue. Would go again.

Loved the hot chocolate and the cakes that we tried. The let down was that we wanted 3 things on the menu that they were no longer serving.

I had previously visited three years ago, and was not disappointed on this visit. My iced chocolate and chocolate pavlova were every bit as delicious as .I remembered, and I hope to return. Great service from friendly staff.

This place was a perfect thing for a cold winters day in Melbourne. If you have a big sweet tooth then this is the perfect thing for you. The staff were very friendly and the food and beverages were great.

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.

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... More

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
