We found this chocolate place by accident a couple of weeks ago, and the quality of the chocolate is fantastic. My very fussy partner even spent time money buying heaps of chocolate. I want to go back.

Haighs is a chocolate lovers paradise. Have been enjoying for over 30 years. Favourites are Chocolate peppermint and coffee bars, peppermint frogs and lime creams. However love them all. No going back after you have tried Haigh chocolate.

Almonds and macadamia in milk chocolate. Coming from NZ I love Whitaker’s chocolate but actually these are pretty good I have to say. Not quite as good as Whitaker’s but not bad!!

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Haighes only serve chocolate over the counter. No afternoon tea is served. If you are looking for a chocolate sit down treat, try Koko Black or for a step up, the Langham Hotel or the Windsor Hotel for a high tea.
