“Excellent High Tea!”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Fanstastic High Tea at Coco Monde.
Went here with my husband and the chocolates and especially the hot chocolate was fantastic! I agree with the other reviews better than Max Brenner's.

The toilets were also immaculate a big plus.

There were only a few downsides, not big enough to rate down though just constructive criticism.

The female waitress doesn't smile at any of the customers. The waitor was great. He smiled and made you feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. I work in hospitality and know how important a smile is.
The only other thing was that you receive 2 tiers which is great but they don't tell you that when the first one comes up - So you fill up on sandwiches and don't realise that the yummt chocolate tier is still to come.

Great place, will recommend and definately be back. :)

“Absolute Fave”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Used to live on Darby St when it first opened and began to become a regular. They have great coffee, the service and food is good and the desserts are fantastic. Highly recommend for a nice lunch or brunch, casual dinner and a wonderful dessert. We like to just drop by for a drink and enjoy the atmosphere. Keep doing a great job coco monde. Thanks!

“Nothing but the chocolate, Ma'am.”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Coco Monde is a chocolateria and, in that regard, they excel. Best chocolate in Newcastle, WAY better than "baldy". Their chocolate and dessert products are second to none and waitstaff service is excellent. I take my wife there regularly for "chocolate therapy" and we are never disappointed.
On the down side, Coco Monde also does regular meals and to this, I say don't bother. I've ordered regular meals there on more than one occasion and have been very disappointed every time. Last meal I ordered was the Greek lamb burger which was dry and tasteless. In all fairness, my wife has had the salmon & citrus salad twice and said it is very good.
Best advice is dine in one of the many other restaurants in Darby Street (most of which don't really excel in the dessert department) then head to Coco Monde for the best dessert you'll ever have. THEN, take some choccies home for later!!

“Delicious sweet treats ... and excellent value too”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

We are regular visitors to Max Brenner at home and this chocolate cafe would give Max a real run for his money! The range of treats available was excellent, with a particularly good kids' menu of smaller sized portions. The venue was beautifully decorated and had great warmth and atmosphere. The staff were both friendly and helpful, making a great overall experience. Perhaps the thing that struck me most was the value for money. Compared to MB (which we love) it was extremely good value. For a family, that makes this place especially appealing. I also loved the way you could build your own sundae, avoiding the toppings you like less for the ones you love most. All in all, a great sweet experience!
