5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Very tasty thick hot chocolate - rich and creamy. Excellent chocolates - thin shells and generous centres, very good flavours and textures. A brilliant experience, would recommend to any chocolate lover!

Yesterday we queued to get a seat in the coffee shop, it was well worth the wait. The dessert degustation plate was so yummy

“Never forget the taste of the Hot Chocolate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

Try it yourself and enjoy the mythical taste of hot chocolate.

It also offers a wide range of magnificent range of cakes and Belgian chocolates which are really hard to find outside Belgium.

Must do in Melbourne!

“Lovely chocolate, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We ended up ordering the Belgian Spoil and Raspberry Chocolate Dome (a few of our preferences were sold out). Both dishes were amazing, especially considering the price!

The atmosphere was great, they had normal tables but I automatically headed for the giant couch in the middle, it stood out and I like novelty. The staff were all attentive and lovely, offering us water as soon as we sat down and also a sample of honeycomb chocolate as we were browsing the selection of take home chocolates they had on display.

I wish I could come here again for dessert some time, but they close at 6pm.

“More than just a chocolate shop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Koko Black has a range superb cakes, desserts and hand-crafted chocolates available in their salon (cafe). These delicious treats can be washed down with tea, coffee or a hot chocolate.
The hot chocolate is rich and smooth with a consistency of thin custard. The staff are laid back and friendly.
