I was feeling hungry mid afternoon and wanted something sweet. Came across all the good reviews here and since Melt Away was only a 10 min walk from where we were staying we ventured over.
We share a caramel chocolate cake and I had an iced Americano. We took home three cookies - chocolate chip, strawberry almond and vanilla shortbread.
The cake was amazing!! The right amount of chocolate and a thick ganache coating. The caramel part was a thin layer of caramel in between the two layers. It reminded me of a chocolate caramel Tim Tam. The coffee wasn't a strong as some other places in town, but they asked if I wanted sugar (vs just adding it) and brought a side of milk, which was nice.
The cookies were just okay. Of the three, the strawberry almond was my favourite. The shortbread my least favourite, maybe because I was expecting it to taste like the melt in your mouth shortbreads from home. All the cookies were flavourful but crunchy. Maybe better dipped in coffee or something.
Also on the higher end for CM prices, but overall great quality so worth it. They have a cute seating area out front so you can dine in, or they'll package up your treats to take away.
