We had iced coffees and their triple chocolate mousse cake and a caramel frog! Delicious. The service was friendly and fast. I loved that they automatically served water - not too often they do this in Australia. We could sit inside or outside on Collins St which was delightful.  Great place to indulge! All up $25.

I had the pleasure of dining at Ganache Chocolate on a Friday evening. After dinner my Mum and I decided to pop into Ganache for some dessert. I... More

It seemed on our last trip to melbourne that there is quite a number of gourmet chocolatiers in the cbd - not that I'd be one to complain. Di my usual routine of a (very delicious )hot chocolate to have in the cafe, and a small box of chocolates to take away for later. Will be back to sample the... More

Afternoon tea, chocolate hazelnut mousse cake, delicious. Very rich might need to share some of the delicious treats with a friend. Visit for a chocolate ly treat, the kids love this one too.

Great table service, excellent coffee, luscious sweets, newspapers to read, comfortably air conditioned for hot Melbourne days - what's not to love? I highly recommend this genuine and hospitable coffee/chocolate shop. It is such a pleasure to indulge here!

I survived my pregnancy on their hot chocolate infused with mint! It's just the right amount of dark, sweet and decadently thick. Their Brownie mousse cake is one of my all time favourites for birthday parties. Even on my weight watcher days - I definitely don't miss my weekly visit to this one. Would definitely recommend it!
