This has become our go-to place whenever we are in the CBD, which lately has been every weekend!
Chokolait is a hidden gem and well worth looking for. If there is a long line, just wait it out- it is worth it!
They have the BEST hot chocolate in all of Melbourne and probably in all of Australia. Possible even in all of the world! No joke. This is what hot chocolate is supposed to be: rich, creamy, decadent.
I also have to recommend the warm chocolate mud cake. Unlike most cafe cakes, which are dried out and tasteless, this cake is the moistest, sweetest, most scrumptious cake ever. It is very rich, so we usually share one, but I could probably manage to eat a whole one myself because it is just so good I can't stop shovelling it in my mouth. I even had to take my coat to the dry cleaners the other week because I had been too enthusiastic about stuffing my face with warm mud cake. That's how good it was. I sacrificed my favourite white coat for that cake.
The only negative thing I can say is that there is one girl there who has terrible math skills. After being charged different prices on different occasions for the same items, we now double check what we have been charged. It doesn't happen often, just when this one particular girl is ringing up the register (I don't know her name), but we still always know before ordering what the total should be so that we don't accidentally get overcharged. Aside from that little flaw, the staff is great and the owner is a very personable, friendly guy.
