We were recommended by staff at the Novotel to come here & they wre on the ball. We were a walk in & got a table within 5 minutes. The choices are great. You can order coffee as well. Our lady took our orders on memory (wow) & they were out to us again in 5 minutes. The chocolate mousse... More

Visited Canberra over Easter and had recently read that Koko Black had taken out two categories in a blind taste of Easter eggs by top pastry chefs. Having not had chocolate for 12 months I decided if I was to have chocolate for Easter it was going to be good chocolate! Koko Black did not disappoint! Staff were friendly and... More

Enjoyed the sunshine and surprisingly warm weather sitting outside for a short break during a quieter session at our conference. We all ordered the chili flavoured hot chocolate - deliciously creamy, the chocolate flavour was deep, rich and complex with a pleasant heat from the chili rounded out with a couple of spices. Whilst none of us ate there, we... More

A great place to unwind on a Friday afternoon. We had ice cream, hot chocolate, florentines, and a selection of delicious chocolates to take home. Friendly and helpful staff, and we were lucky enough to sit in the comfy leather lounge chairs.

Ordered after dinner a cup of rich chocolate -- it took a very long time to come. However in the meantime they gave us lots of chocolates, which are very special. The Hot Chocolate if very rich, and you may want to go for the light version. A lot of cream. If you like all things cocoa based, a must... More

I go to Koko Black quite often. At a recent visit I had a hot chocolate which was yummy. Another great drink is Coffee affogato. The service was excellent and the surroundings had a real nice feel to it.

Stopped for a coffee and we were really impressed with the service and quality of the product. The hot chocolates are amazing. The range of chocolates are incredible. If you are looking for somewhere after dinner or just a treat for yourself well worth it.

We arrived for a late breakfast/morning coffee. Unfortunately no apple & walnut brioche left - will return for another try as it sounds lovely. Can recommend the crumpets - light & crisp + quality jam. It was mid week so only a few customers (mostly older people) - considering that, the service was a little inattentive although once we finally... More
