“Excellent chocolatey place not to be missed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Visited the Koko Black at the Royal Arcade. There was no line, so we got our table next to the window. The upstairs is also charming but could be quite noisy as it is enclosed but you do get a bird’s eye view of the mall below. We ordered a truffle to try and also the hot chocolate drink – the light version. It was to die for – not too strong and rich enough (due to the lite version) and very flavorful and smooth. As I found out, the better the quality of the chocolate, less sugar is required as there is more chocolate butter which makes the chocolate very smooth….. The drink is not cheap but it is definitely worth every single cent. The truffle was also very delicious and not too sweet – unlike some of the other boutique brands. Amazing range of single pieces showcased. Single bars from different countries are also available – which is quite unusual. Service during the visit was also very friendly and they even let us hang around after they closed the shop.

“Outstanding food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

This little gem is tucked away in the Royal Arcade in Bourke Street and has other locations I believe. I've visited three times now and am never disappointed. There is an olde worlde look about the shop and upstairs is very enjoyable. They make their own chocolate and I believe it's world class. Anything chocolate from hot or cold drinks to their cakes are fantastic. I highly recommend their chocolate tasting platter for a very reasonable amount of money to be excellent value. Treat yourself

“First time visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Was a nice intro to Koko Black. Went to the Collins street store. Very friendly staff and great feel to the place. The selection and choices were outstanding. For a Saturday afternoon thing, very pleasant on a cold windy Melbourne day.

“Choc lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

If you love chocolate then this is where you need to find a seat and go your fill.
The staff are very busy with three deep at the counter, so I would suggest late afternoon.
Up stairs was and is a little more relaxing and hopefully the walk back to you stay will counter the kilos if you pig out.
