We were at the Lygon Street outlet which had a warm and inviting ambience. The chocolate ice cream and mouse were very good. However, the pralines and cake were disappointing. Similarly, the coffee and signature hot chocolate were below average by Melbourne's high standards.

Great shop.This is the place for the chocoholics. Wide selection of choclates. Knowledgeable staff. Beware the free samples.

Honestly no words are needed. Amazing! Presentation and selection fantastic. We had the tasting plate. My partner and I really enjoyed this. The additional caramel and chocolate sauce just completed the selection. I ordered the light hot chocolate. It was delicious and not too sweet....More

We visited this chocolate/dessert store and purchased a variety of hand selected chocolates. These varied from Pistachio, Praline, Salted Caramel, Coconut etc and they were all brilliant. The salted caramel was our personal fave. Chocolates being purchased individually were $2.30 each bit worth it as...More

I went here for a late afternoon tea with a friend. We had a lovely soy hot chocolate and tasty orange cake. It was a bit loud intermittently due to the baristas grinding coffee (I think), but otherwise the atmosphere was pleasant. The staff were...More

We enjoyed the chocolate ice cream the most - moist, rich and just about the right level of sweetness, which was ironically featured on the kids menu. We recommend salted caramel dark chocolate. Truffles unfortunately were a bit chain-store quality; you would feel these were...More

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way

The Carlton salon opens late to cater for the evening crowd in the busy Lygon St precinct. The upstairs lounge offers a haven of relaxation, contemplation and rejuvenation, allowing customers to sit down and enjoy the magic of chocolate in their own little nook.We love the specialty desserts menu available exclusively at the Carlton salon, created by head pastry chef, Adam Tippins. The menu changes seasonally, which means there is always something new to discover.
