I recently enjoyed coffee and savoury scone here for morning tea. The coffee was very good and the scone the best I've eaten for a long time. A worthwhile excursion as the chocolate shop is here and a very good gift shop if you want something special to take overseas

Went in for lunch & a look around. Chocolates look amazing & the fudge looked awesome too - we had lunch in the cafe which was really good - loved the extreme hot chocolate!! Service was excellent & of course we ate too much but the food was divine!

Went here for a birthday lunch thinking it was a cafe. Yes it is a cafe but the food is high end restaurant stuff. Highly impressed with the quality of the food but it is also fairly pricey. It is not a noisy cafe so you can still have a conversation. I definitely want to go back. I have heard... More

Great selection of quality food served with delicious side salads/freshly baked bread rolls served with the best iced mochas we have ever had. Deserts are delicious - most are served with whipped cream and a pot of melted chocolate. Yum! No wonder we are regular visitors here :)

In the cafe the food is really nice although a little over priced, however for a treat it's well worth it. I can recommend the vege fritter with bacon and Brie! The hot chocolates definitely hit the spot on the cold day we passed through on.

Took my granddaughter along for brunch with a group of friends. She requested the lovely kids platter, which came with ham sandwiches, fruit, some special little home baked cookies and of course a chocolate treat or two. We had a walk through the museum and then a visit to the chocolate shop - just a lovely outing for the two... More

The shop and cafe were well worth the trip on their own (try the iced chocolate drink), but the museum (although modern) seemed a little spartan and could do with some interactive exhibits in order to interest younger visitors.
