Every time I visit Melbourne I never miss this place for a hot chocolate. Nothing should taste that good.

This is like a chocolate lovers heaven. Great coffee - had a cappuccino that was topped with real chocolate. Service was great and friendly. Coffee came with complimentary biscuit which is always a winner.

What a great place.. smells of choccy and the they are heaven.Its a bit of a competition between Haighs, Lindt and this one. But you need to try them all to compare.

Absolutely amazing hot chocolate the best I have ever had! Which says a lot as I am extremely fussy and a huge chocoholic. We were staying across the road at the novotel so I came in every day for my fix. They have lovely individual chocolates and deserts. Highly recommend this place. Lovely friendly staff I only wish they were... More

We were recommended to visit by the men's outfitter next door. We were glad we visited. We had fine service, good coffee and the gluten free Black Forest cake was fulsome and totally enjoyable. Do not walk by - drop in and enjoy!

This is the perfect place for a coffee and chocolate. Even better this is a great place for chocolate - hold the coffee as there are much much better places to get coffee in Melbourne. Even the hot chocolates - I tried the mint and mocha ones - I found sickly sweet due to the frothy milk and syrup signature... More

I start every day with a coffee. At Ganache it was a coffee, two exquisite chocolates and a take away cake - divine. Service was prompt and the coffee and chocolates came in no time. All that was left was to enjoy the Melbourne ambience!

Open late on Saturday night, so ventured in for coffee and dessert. Great selection of hot drinks and tempting desserts. The coffee is lovely & the vanilla latte variation is made with vanilla beans & not too sweet. Great to eat out on the sidewalk when the weather permits.

Try a vanilla latte, they are beautiful! Not too sweet either which is a nice change. Make sure to check out the big array of chocolates because there's something for everyone!

We first went here, earlier in the year when we did a chocolate walking tour, had the most divine hot chocolate then. Due to the storm in Melbourne on Sunday we decided to "shelter" and warm up, so glad we did!!!. Had the most yummiest, tasting cake I have ever had, I didn't want it to end, the triple mousse...

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
