At bottom end of Rundle St. Good coffee, interesting gelato flavours and yummy cakes. Chocolates quite expensive but the food is great.

I acknowledge that this isn't the cheapest place to grab a coffee and cake but it is well located on Rundle Street nestled between the boutiques so high prices aren't unexpected. There is a choice of sitting outside at either end of the cafe as inside does tend to be quite dark but comfortable nonetheless. The macaroons are of good... More

We were looking for a coffee shop after we had been for lunch at a good but rowdy restaurant. We walked into Cocolat and was greeted by a happy and friendly staff member The service was very good and the coffees were very good. The background music was a little loud for one of our party and when asked the... More

Good ice cfream and dessert, but it all feels a bit generic - brought in from offsite. Having said that, they've got good suppliers, so its a fine option

It's OK in here, but they have better branches elsewhere in the town. For all of its being situated on a busy street, we stopped by at 9pm and they refused to serve us! The chocolate is nice, as it is standard in this chain, but the service in this one is generally pretty off.

Have been half a dozen times over the years, don't have liquors or spirits any more, so no afforgatto with frangelico . Quality of the cakes and chocolates have become more mainstream average quality. Great presentation though, many of their young clients would like their offering as they are very sweet. For my liking too sweet lacking quality and flavour,... More

Stopped in after dinner at the wonderful NOLA Adelaide for something sweet. Was not disappointed. I was aiming for an affogato, but after learning the base variety here doesn't come with liquor, I abstained and had a raspberry briand instead. Served on a plate with cream, was excellent. Highly recommended if you have a couple of extra bucks in your... More

Fantastic customer service every time I've been. It's hard to choose which treat to have - they all sound sooo good!! Definitely the place to go for a hot chocolate in winter.

Very happy with service, the young man at the counter and waitress were very friendly and efficient. Had lunch there with a friend and we tried the cheese and ham croissant with a hot chocolate. Meal was yummy but the highlight was definitely the peppermint hot chocolate, simply divine!! Highly recommend.

Ok then so who doesn't like chocolate and especially chocolate cake or another yummy with coffee. This place has nice coffee (but not hot) and lovely cakes. But the cups are way too small for the price and the cakes.....well they are just a plain rip off. Awesome looking but the price will scare you. What I've paid $7 in... More
