Tried their chili hot chocolate, loved it! Their tasty hot chocolate with a kick in your throat. I was in town for a week and pretty much went there every day.

With all the rave reviews I had to check this place out. They have around 7 branches in Melbourne itself. Considering it was a cold morning I decided it would be the best time to try their famous hot chocolate. I had the original Belgian version. It came with the right temperature where you can drink without burning your tongue.... More

Oh gosh can caramel taste any better than when paired up with salt ?? These are a must accompaniment to the (ordinary) coffee at the cafe. Let's face it, who is going there for coffee anyway. Their chocolates are delicious. Service is always excellent.

Every trip to Melbourne, I go here to buy a heap of chocolates for the family. It's expensive, but they are well worth it if you enjoy fine chocolates.

Recommend the degustation dessert tasting plate. Fabulous with a hot chocolate and to share with friends. The menu says for two, but it definitely filled three bellies. The salted caramel mousse was our favourite although the Dark Chaos Reveal and the Chocolate, raspberry and vanilla puff came a very close second and third. Yummo!

Just wow! A cute tucked away shop with gourmet chocolates and truffles and all things yummy. If you can treat yourself to something in Melbourne do this. We had a share plate and hot chocolates as it is quite filling! Beautifully created and overall just bad for the hips. Thoroughly enjoyed it here and recommend it highly

We ordered the Light Hot Chocolate and WOW the best hot chocolate we have ever had. Served wonderfully hot and creamy. We were relaxing and really enjoying our visit so much we ordered a second cup. This time we were disappointed one look told us that these cups were not going to be so good. These cups looked like they... More

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.

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.
