“Great "Chokolait" cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Came here to catch up with a friend. Initially she wanted us to go Max Brenner's but then I suggested this since Max Brenner's is always crowded. Anyway we arrived at 4pm a Thursday afternoon and made ourselves comfortable on some of the couches, there were only a few other customers. I ordered an Ice chocolate drink and she ordered the warm mud cake as suggested by the lady working there.
They were divine!
Ice chocolate came in a milk shake

“Well recommended.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Having read about Chokolait Hub on Trip Advisor, it was high on my list of "must dos" when last visiting Melbourne. And I was not disappointed, the iced chocolate and chocolate pavlova were divine. I was there about 11.45 am, which as it turned out, was great timing, only a couple of other customers, and room to spread out the newspaper for a read. Definately top of my list for a revisit next trip.

“Devine!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

I was here for a baby shower and the food and service was amazing! The fresh fruit and chocolate dip was amazing! I had a Jaffa dark hot chocolate and it was heavenly!! But hard to find but well worth it!

HI and thanks, I remember the baby shower party very well and it's great that everyone had a good time, except baby of course but I'm sure he/her will be told all about it one day. Take care, Ross/Owner/Chokolait

“Heavenly Chokolait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Wellingtonian's in Melbourne getting a taste of superb chocolate. We ordered dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and chilli chocolate drinks, and chocolate cake and chocolate fondu. The chilli chocolate drink was amazind, so was the cake and fondu. Highly recommended if you love chocolate.

“Can't say anything really good or bad about this place.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

This place is what it says on the tin.

I would say, for the price, the Ice Cream Treat I had was average. Better than your typical gastro pub dessert but nowhere near michelin star standard. But then its probably not trying to be. But on English pounds is definitely priced towards the latter.

My daughter had the hot chocolate and she was pretty underwhelmed but then again she is quite young. I'm no expert on hot chocolate but I expected something a bit more special for nearly £7.

Whilst its no criticism the location is slightly odd, tucked away in the semi basement of a shopping mall. We had to sit in the passageway at the top of the stairs as what appeared to be a tour party of about 50 people had just arrived who seemed to be having the full CH experience complete with take away.
