Lovely place to visit

Excellent service, great coffee, beautiful chocolates...what's not to love about Ganache? We visit every time we are in Melbourne and are never disappointed. It maintains high standards in customer service and products. Just lovely!

For a post shopping treat this is the place to go. It was very busy but we were found a table quite quickly. The hot chocolte with marshmellow had just the right smoothness, heat and was not overwhelmingly sweet. It has been added to my 'must do' list on my next trip to Melbourne.

I came here at the end of the Chocoholic Tour and it was such a nice place to end the day. We were served a chocolate mousse cake which was perfect as it had an amazing flavour but wasn't too rich. Great find!

I have been to Ganache a lot of times over the years, always have great chocolates and cakes, the quality is consistent. On this occasion went in to purchase an Easter Egg, yes only one, well it was 2.5 Kg. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.

Gutted to find Koko Black in The Block Arcade closed and craving a chocolate fix, I was delighted to stumble upon Ganache Chocolate on Collins. A little trepidatious about being disappointed, I went for a classic hot chocolate instead of my usual preference with chili. Was not disappointed, it was hot (not lukewarm), velvety rich and not overly sweet or... More

Ganache is a cosy chocolate shop which sometimes is a little cramped but on our recent visit we found two comfortable leather chairs in which to enjoy our delectable desserts and coffee. The staff were so friendly that we felt like welcomed long lost friends to the point that we left without paying. After a short walk we remembered the... More
