High quality coffee and chocolates to die for. Pricey, but the waiting line shows people think the product is worth it. Great staff.

By this second week of our three-week stay in Australia, we had an afternoon ritual of finding a cafe (before 5pm, as most cafes close around 4:30), and getting a "flat white" or a "long black" along with something sweet. At Koko Black, there were SO many scrumptious choices, we could hardly make up our mind! This cafe was centrally... More

Visited there for a dessert hot chocolate - the classic Belgium hc was nice - I also had the dark chocolate salted caramel Unfortunately the salted caramel was way over salty I like the surroundings and very impressed with everything and will try this place again but won't be having any salted caramel chocolate

Koko Black is a great place for dessert and hot chocolate as well as a wide variety of chocolates for purchase. The Belgian Hot Chocolate is excellent and available for purchase as well. The restaurant is relaxed and the staff are friendly.

Has lots of fancy chocolate. It also does great condition coffee with friendly staff. The shop is in the city so parking is a bit hard to find.

They have no doubt arguably the best chocolate dessert menu and chocolates. IF planing to eat on the premises, the serving staff are not so friendly. Gave them benefit of doubt the first visit but the story continued on my following 3 visits. I hope they look at making improvements to customer service because I love their product and don't...

When I'm in Civic and feel the need for a hot chocolate I go to Koko Black and have a cinnamon hot chocolate, it's the best in Canberra. Smooth, chocolatey, and hot. I there's no time to sit down and relax, get a take away. The staff are always friendly and helpful. While you're waiting for your drink take time... More
