Koko Black in Collins Street can be rated one of the best in Melbourne.The decor is classy and the service efficient and friendly. The coffee is good and the grated chocolate supplied is excellent. We tried desert and this was excellent even if a little expensive at just above $10. They oioften provide a free sample of their chocolates.

Great cafe for a rainy cold day in Melbourne. It is a beautiful cafe inside - worth just going in to enjoy the decor, and the old world feel of this lovely part of town. Staff could be friendlier - less stuck up would be better!

Order, sit, relax and enjoy! The chocolates are to die for. The service is brilliant. We went back several times over several days just to indulge in their chocolates and hot chocolates. This is a must.

It's funny how you slip into patterns even in places you visit only every couple of years. Koko Black for coffee, tea, and chocolates is one of those Melbourne habits that is now ingrained with us. Good service. Great coffee. Good atmosphere. Superb chocolate. Never miss it!

We'd talked about visiting koko black while planning our Melbourne adventure, and a few days before we'd written it off and decided against it to save time. On the day, we decided to go for it- and we're very, very glad we did! The place looks like your average Cafe from the outside - right up until you see a... More

This time we had homemade crumpets with chocolate roasted hazelnut spread and raspberry coco nib jam...What a treat. Seating outside or upstairs gives that extra vibe and being in the... More

The best capuccino we had on our whole week in Melbourne was at this Koko Black, and that includes both the regular and soy versions. The chocolates here are all delicious and if you simply can't decide what to have ask one of the incredibly friendly, helpful staff to make recommendations. Everything is delicious and you won't be disappointed with... More
