I saw a '$10 off' Voucher for this place in the local newspaper, & was excited to have a 'chocolate cafe' in our area finally (Parramatta is further away, Max Brennars). Julie, Sambath & I Decided to go on a Friday night, i was in a bitter mood, & what can be better then sweetening it up with some chocolate goodness :)
It was quiet actually, i thought it would be abit more busy seeing as they opened just 2 or 3 days ago. It was roughly around 7pm so maybe.. it gets busier later in the night after people have finished dinner/watching a movie.
I noticed the girl at the registers used to do kickboxing at the gym so i said a quick hello how are you before sitting down. Its pretty much like you take a menu, sit down, then up again to the register to order & pay before sitting down again!
They have a wide range of hot chocolates (served in a cuddle cup, which sounds very much like Max Brenners "hug mug"!), i think they had about one page & a half, so it took us a while to decide on which one to get..
I finally decided on the 'coconut' from ancient origins. An intoxicating match of fragrant flakes of coconut dipped in perfumed cocoa of the ivory coast.
Julie chose 'hazelnut' select hazelnuts covered in nougat caramel & drowned in thin dutch cocoa.
Sambath chose the 'apple & cinnamon' rich smooth cocoa combined with the familiar taste of poached apple & infused with undertones of spiced cinnamon.
I really enjoyed reading through the menu of drinks, they describe each drink so intricately, it's beautiful!
We decided against ordering waffles or cakes, & chose this because it looked unique amongst everything else on the menu.
'The Chocolate Room Poffertjes". Yeah, try pronouncing it! Because i spent about 10 minutes trying hehe. Basically these were mini pancake type cakes, drizzled with chocolate (which you can see is obviously not enough!!) & served with vanilla icecream, & strawberries.
Honestly, they were abit dry, & the chocolate wasn't that great :( I think i could do a better job at home..
I'd like to think it was just a one off, i do want to come back & try the waffles & maybe take home some choccies!
