“Best chilli hot chocolate in Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Great that you can pick how hot on a scale from 1 to 10 you want your hot chocolate. Even when busy they smile and look after you. Great place.

HI and thanks, smiley here, glad you enjoyed your Chilli hot chocolate, there are great especially through the colder months so better rush back before we move into summer mode, Iced chocolate, fresh strawberry, banana etc, yummo.

Take care,

“Excellent chocolate!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This was a chocolate place a friend brought my wife and I to recently in our Melbourne trip. It was amazing! The whole experience was really worth it.

Service - Amazing friendly service from everyone on staff. They were always smiling and very helpful to our questions/orders. Flawless. Our friends were regulars at this place and the owner was chatting with them. He is such a cool owner :D

Food - Only tried the drinks here. I got the chocolate affogato (hot dark chocolate with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream) which was heavenly. I'm not normally a sweet-tooth person but this was amazing. Chocolate was the right sweetness and the ice-cream complimented it nicely. My wife had the cinnamon dark chocolate and she loved it too.

Value - Not too expensive considering what the quality was so definitely good value for money.

Atmosphere - Nice little cafe shop and the decors were simple but fits the whole setting. Kinda like a cafe in Paris or Milan for sure.

Overall - A great place to have chocolate drink and if you love/like chocolate, this place would be like heaven for you :) Would return for sure.

“Best chocolate in Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Melbourne has a lot of chocolate cafes, many very good like Koko Black, Max Brenner and more. This one is the best overall IMO. A range of chocolate drinks are available spanning Belgian milk through many flavours like the jaffa orange, cinnamon and chilli. Cold variants exist as well. the quality of chocolate used is excellent as are the available selection of sweets. The dark jaffa orange hot choc is a wonder to behold. The obscure location and the fact that this is not a franchise really adds to the experience.

“Chocolate dreams come true.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Back to Chokolait for another fondue and it is always yummy. Chilli hot chocolate, cinnamon hot chocolate and coffees were all great. This place is a must-do on our trips to Melbourne for a reason and never fails to impress.

“Chocolate Fix!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is only a small but certainly has a big market! The owners are very personable and their knowledge and passion for what they do do is very motivating.
The truth of the matter is most like my wife and I love chocolate, so do yourself a favour and try it.
I had the fondu & hot chocolate and can recommend and my wife raved about the the chocolate with chilli
