The chocolates are amazing, the hot drinks are fabulous and the staff friendly. Such a beautiful little shop and well worth sitting down and enjoying a hot cuppa with some decadent chocolate.

Holidaying in Melbourne for the Easter weekend included at least three visits to Ganache for their Classic Hot Chocolate....rich, creamy, that hint of dark chocolate bitterness but sweet at the same time. Don't know how they do it, but it's the closest thing to chocolate...More

Always like to come and have a hot chocolate here when in Melbourne. It's certainly a lot busier than it used to be, haven't been to Melbourne in a few years so was pleased to see it was still here.
