Without a doubt, Koko Black is the best chocolate in Australia and when in Melbourne you must go there to try their exquisite range of chocolates. The Royal Arcade shop is my favourite and the staff there are lovely. All of their products are amazing but you cannot go past the Passionfruit individual chocolates. They are divine.

I had been there couple of times , though it is right across my work place. I had the Cinnamon hot chocolate and it is one of the best that I had ever. I would definitely recommend everyone to visit this place atleast once if you are in Melbourne and I am sure you would love that.

Very populare, bury but still great service. The Hot Chocolate is enough to make to stop here every time you pass, but the Gianduja log is just sublime! A Must Do for every time I'm in Oz.

Absolutely delicious Cinnamon Hot Chocolate. I need this daily which means you'll need to open one for me in Darwin 😊 Down side the place has no atmosphere at all.

I recently visited Melbourne with a friend and introduced her to Koko Black, telling her that it would be the greatest hot chocolate of her life. She was skeptical to say the least... But one sip, and she told me that she had been spoiled for life. Still so good, after all these years.

With so many dining experiencing awaiting locals and travellers alike, there is no need to experience substandard service like that found at Koko Black. The Royal arcade location is better but really unless you feel like being just another consumer - in, out, over - try somewhere else. The coffee is ok.

Who does't love chocolate? Koko black is the place for artisan chocolate and their degustation platter is a must. I love their hot chocolate as well and the atmosphere is just the right place to relax for a "me time".. the selection of chocolate they have is extensive and i love them all

In the CBD for an appointment and decided to spare time for a quick treat. Wow! Wonderful hot chocolate drink and the most beautiful chocolate mousse - wicked, but sensational!

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.
