It was a sad day when Cacao moved business solely online, as they make the finest macarons, cakes, pastries and, of course, chocolates. But not to worry, you can still get the delicious wares delivered to your door and from select physical stockists.

Cacao still have everyone's favourite traditional flavours, or you could branch out into delights, such as burnt orange, gianduja, mandarin, passionfruit, rose, yuzu, and miso caramel.

Tucked away inside East Brunswick lies Monsieur Truffe, the insanely delicious and decadent chocolatier, who also furnishes a cafe (East Elevation) with chocolatey treats. 

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

The East Elevation menu also features a Monsieur Truffe hot chocolate list – the salted caramel is utterly divine.
