My partner and I usually come here once a year for our annual winter chocolate overdose. The quality of the chocolates here is incredible, and their drinks are even better. Don't leave here on a cold day without having had the chilli hot chocolate.

When a girlfriend asked to stop in at Koko Black while we were shopping at Highpoint for a takeaway chili hot chocolate, I was more than a little interested to taste test. From then, I was hooked. I now go to Highpoint just to have one of these delicious concoctions, to while away a half hour of sensory bliss. Velvety... More

We went up stairs in the arcade to find this beautiful yummy choc. cafe. The staff where happy and understand choc. lovers. They almost carried the over indulgence smile..... The crumpets are just to die for along with the choc. poured over them and they where warm too. The icecreme was perfect for the finishing touch

The coffee temperature was just perfect. My partner claims the chilly hot chocolate was to die for. Will have to try it next visit.

I always enjoy their Belgian dark chocolate cold drink! It is really really nice. The staff are friendly and I'm sure you will enjoy the great ambience of the restaurant.

After visiting Koko Black in Lygon Street yesterday I was sure that I would be able to get a good coffee again. Wrong! Even after asking for a flat white "not too hot" mainly for the fact that I was hanging for a decent coffee and wanted to drink it straight away but also because all I heard was milk... More

The best Chocolate Cafe in Melbourne. Their Mocha with Belgium Chocolate is very recommended. Chocogatto was amazing too. We tried some of the pralines and they all very recommended.
