Description: The Carlton salon opens late to cater for the evening crowd in the busy Lygon St precinct. The upstairs lounge offers a haven of relaxation, contemplation and rejuvenation, allowing customers to sit down and enjoy the magic of chocolate in their own little nook.We love the specialty desserts menu available exclusively at the Carlton salon, created by head pastry chef, Adam Tippins. The menu changes seasonally, which means there is always something new to discover.

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Fantastic range of desserts and drinks. Great place for a treat. Probably best to skip the meal and go straight here!

“Classy yumminess”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

All the Koko Blacks are lovely but the one in Collins St (Paris end) is a particularly gorgeous little tea room-style cafe. Chocolate is incredible!

When the weather is dull, let the handmade chocolates lift your mood as you enjoy the aroma and indulge yourself.

“Just too good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Even though they were busy the hospitality was wonderful the lady greeted us and explained they are full but if we wait on the other side we can get a seat upstairs and just as we walked to the other side a table upstairs became available. Excellent service, awesome ice chocolates and yummy platter of different types of delights just too good!
