Read about this on Best Hot Chocolates in Urban List Melbourne. Went to the Toorak location (newest cafe). Great service and unique chocolates (i had the goats cheese with peach and the olive oil & smoked sea salt). Unique flavours that really work together. Yum! The Hot Chocolate I had was the Single Origin. If you are a fan of... More

Fantastic cafe for coffee and chocolate. Great staff who replaced a spilt drink for my son with no fuss and no cost. Would definitely recommend this to anyone in the area.

Have visited many times. Great coffee and amazing hot chocolate (many flavors - love the hazelnut and Spanish). The chocolates are hand made by the family who own the two stores. Great flavor choices. Try the more unusual flavours you won't be disappointed. Staff friendly. Store gets busy so can be a little slow at times but worth the wait.

Recently, I bought a few boxes of Christmas theme choc. The choc are painted with reindeer, X'mas trees, balls, socks and lights. The flavors are unique too and only available during... More

We were visiting Kew from the U.S., and were pretty jet-lagged for a week. My sister-in-law introduced us to Xocolatl, and we wanted to visit every day after that. My children loved their hot chocolate poured over ice cream, and their mocca coffees made every day better for me. We didn't buy any chocolate candies, but very much enjoyed looking... More

I walk her most weekends along the linear park. Great chocolates, and good coffee also. One of few places in the immediate area open Sunday. Only issue: conveniences have been closed nearly all year, for renovations ??

Without a doubt the best chocolates I have ever had, and their drinks are to die for! Friendly staff as well so you always feel welcome. I have been going here for years and have never been dissapointed.
