The Chocolate Room

Chocolate Sundae

Hazelnut Hot Chocolate w/ 3 chocolates 

This chocolate cafe was stumbled across by pure accident, and it was heaven sent considering the gloomy downpour and the fact that we were all looking for a little something sweet and comforting to keep us warm. The atmosphere of the cafe isn’t as lavish as I hoped it to be, but the hot chocolates definitely made up for it. There are over 20 flavours of hot chocolates to choose from, all served in a cuddle cup or in a large cup kept warm by a lit tea candle underneath. I choose the Tiramisu hot chocolate which smelt divine and tasted heavenly with subtle traces of coffee, mascarpone and chocolate.

It has become my winner in the cafe chocolate category in Sydney (nothing beats Koko Black yet!) and definitely will be heading back to sample more flavoured hot chocolates.

Boon Chocolates

Boon Chocolates

A little hidden gem in Darlinghurst by a brother and sister combo. Driven by curiousity as it was recommended by one of my work colleagues; it was destined that we were going to have a sugary and chocolate filled brunch. We’re well greeted and led upstairs to warm Victorian room decorated with chocolate coloured walls, candles and classical music – she even asks whether the music is suited to our moods at the time; a charming gesture.We order tea and waffles, which were quite filling for us until the late afternoon. Unfortunately, I was chocolate overwhelmed so I didn’t purchase any boxed chocolates – which gives me good reason to go back!

It’s a little hidden gem in Darlinghurst which is run by a brother and sister combo. Recommended by one of my work colleagues; it was destined that we were going to have a sugary and chocolate filled brunch! We were all well greeted and we were led upstairs to a warm Victorian room decorated with chocolate coloured walls, candles and classical music. Our host even asked whether the music was suitable – which is a very charming and notably nice gesture. We order tea and waffles which were quite filling for us until the late afternoon. The waffles were great but super sugary as per usual, but Boon would definitely be my choice over Max Benners’ in the Belgium waffle chocolate cafe category. Unfortunately, the chocolate overload held me back from choosing some boxed chocolates but it leaves me good reason to go back!
