“Delicious Chocolate & Cafe Food”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

Well worth a visit. Lots of different chocolate flavours and packages to choose from and the chocolate is fresh and delicious. The food in the cafe was very nice - there's a good selection with a good sized original salad and the service excellent. There are a good variety of cake decorations in the gift shop. The museum did seem a bit much at $8 per person - a lot of reading to do but informative and interesting (a few giggles) and the old chocolate boxes etc brought back fond memories of nana's house.

“Coffee break”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Food, atmosphere, and coffee was wonderful at the cafe/restaurant. Service here was great.
Didn't like the souvenir shop and atmosphere here was completely different to the cafe. Shop assistant more interested in talking to someone else than serving customers.

“Not if you're on a diet”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

A great place to buy chocolate you really do not need but just can't resist. Forget the bars and go for the more exotic pieces such as motorbikes etc. If on a budget just buy a bag of seconds to satisfy your needs.

“Yummo and friendly service”
Reviewed February 11, 2012

It is on Link road and worth the stop. Very nice chocolate, top end but seconds are also available. I am taking it home to enjoy at my leisure.
