Our first store to open in Melbourne back in the 1960s, 26 Collins Street...

Our first store to open in Melbourne back in the 1960s, 26 Collins Street is located at the top end of town otherwise known as ‘The Paris End’. The store has a design element of a Paris boutique and is very popular with corporate Melbourne. Our team often provide chocolates to nearby 5-star hotels including the famous Windsor, and also to the parliamentarians from just around the corner in Spring Street.

We were here more than once during our 6 days. Great place to pick up some gifts and tasty treats. Always well stocked and the price not too bad. Great to pick up some choc gifts esp if you live out of the state. They will pack them as well so that you can take them on the plane.

They have a lovely variety of chocolates to choose from which look stunning. They do however fall short on taste and at times often just reminded me of Cadbury and the likes. They're pretty expensive too. I'd look for an alternative

I'd head to Haigh's if I were planning to give chocolates as a gift. They do excellent co-ordinated packaging, and if you watch the window displays you'll see that every few months there is new themed range of packs.

The selection of chocolate if numerous. The chocolate is excellent. The Collins street store is always busy. Staff friendly. After your purchase you are offered a free chocolate. A nice touch. Quality shopping experience.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
