Best Chocolate Cafes in Melbourne

  • Family

Dark, milk, white, ones with centres, ones without, in drinks, on spoons, and just about any way you can get it, Melbourne is home to some outrageously special spots to get your chocolate fix. Right across the city, in every nook, cranny, and cobbled lane you'll find exactly what you need and then some.

And these magical, mysterious spots are, in no particular order:

1. Monsieur Truffe

Tucked away inside Brunswick's East Elevation lies Monsieur Truffe, the insanely delicious and decadent chocolatiers who also furnish the cafe with chocolatey treats. 

Championing bean-to-bar chocolates since way back in 2006, you can grab single origin, specialty flavours like berries and cream, coconut, honeycomb, caramel specks, roasted hazelnut, chai and pistachio; hot chocolates, and seasonal goodies. 

The East Elevation menu also comes with a Monsieur Truffe hot chocolate list - the salted caramel is utterly divine.

Find them: 351 Lygon St, Brunswick

2. Cacao Fine Chocolate and Patisserie

The finest macarons, cakes, pastries, and of course, chocolates are yours at Cacao, where you can choose from everyone's favourite traditional flavours, or branch out into delights like burnt orange, gianduja, mandarin, passionfruit, rose, yuzu, and miso caramel.

Find them: Cheltenham, Highpoint, various locations

3. Theobroma Chocolate Lounge

You know when a company tries to take on the coffee crowd, that they're going to give it their all. And when the folk at Theobroma realised there was a demand for something other than the caffeine bean, they decided to bring top-quality chocolate experiences to the people.

You'll find crispy Belgian waffles smothered in thick melted chocolate on their extensive menu, as well as truffles, fondue, pancakes, gift boxes, hot and cold drinks, coffee, cakes and fruit, and each iteration has it's own food menu for breakfast and lunch.

Find them: at Fountain Gate, South Yarra, Point Cook, Northland, Melbourne Central, Knox, Eastland, and Southern Cross.


4. Mork Chocolate Brew House

Home of we at ellaslist Melbourne call "The Ultimate Hot Chocolate", Mörk Chocolate Brew House should 100% on any chocolate-lover's list for the ultra choc destination.

Their drinks are theatrical, surreal, and delicious (the campfire hot chocolate is what you're looking for!), and hand crafted from the finest dark chocolate by Cacao Artisans of Melbourne. Made with specially sourced cocoa powder, pure 100% chocolate liquor and coconut blossom sugar, they're guaranteed to blow your mind.

For chunky blocks of goodness, check out their Mörk Original Dark 70%, Mörk Even Darker 85%, Mörk Dark Milk & River Salt 65% and LuxBite Salted Caramel & Mörk - Special Edition.

Find them: 150 Errol Street North Melbourne

5. Chokolait

With a philosophy of "making the finest genuine Belgian couverture chocolates, hand crafted cakes and desserts and premium quality beverages", you would assume that all your chocolate dreams would come true at Chokolait's Emporium "Chocolate Salon" - and you'd be right!

Their aim is perfection and their menu reflects that in scrumptious, elegant treats like Belgian chocolate mousse with white chocolate cream, edible hot chocolate, mud cake, brownies, chef's tasting plate and even cakes, fruit and ice cream. For ultra family fun, I'd go the rich, creamy, indulgent chocolate fondue!

Find them: Shop 342 - Level 3, Emporium 287 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne

6. Pana Chocolate

Hand-picked cacao pods from Bolivia, coconut from the Philippines, cold pressed cacao butter from Peru, Indonesian coconut nectar and Mexican dark agave comes together for some vegan chocolate that is truly mind-blowing at the Pana Chocolate store in Richmond. 

Pana chocolate is also organic, soy free, gluten free, diary free, and made without preservatives, although packed with antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals - AND FLAVOUR! (my favourites include pineapple and ginger, rose, and mint).

An inclusive chocolate everyone can enjoy! Pana Chocolate also do gift packs celebrating Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, Easter, Eid, Christmas, and more.

Find them: 491 Church Street, Richmond
