I've been fortunate enough to visit the Haigh factory in Adelaide and watch the chocolates being made. It was a delight then and it was a delight today to see the Melbourne store 'going off like a frog in a sock'. It was hopping. The place was packed with people looking and buying chocolate. Great to see an Australian business doing so well in the middle of Melbourne.
It's reputation is well deserved. The staff are delightful. They know their stuff and customer service is great. The staff can help you choose a chocolate for yourself or as a gift.
The Block Arcade is in itself an iconic place of Melbourne and Haigh's Chocolates adds to it.
Beware - the chocolate isn't cheap but it's not regular Cadbury's. This is REAL chocolate and you only need one or two small pieces to feel like you've had plenty. Savour every bite.
Be prepared to wait during busy times.
Easy access via the two entrances to the Block Arcade.
Prices vary, cheapest I saw was $4, most expensive was in the $100's.
