I finally got around to visiting Cheeky Chocolate, but at a time that way too early to indulge in a dine-in. Instead, I was tempted by the gorgeous array of cakes and macarons in the display cabinet for take-away.The styling of the cakes are exquisite and very much of zumbo-esque, however I was disappointed to find a very limited selection of macarons - only 5 or 6 flavours total... and none were my beloved salted caramel ones! I was also disappointed by the price of the macarons - at $3 each, and being smaller than the Lindt delices or the ones at Zumbo, it is quite expensive. Cakes were priced at $9 each (takeaway price), again quite expensive, but apparently they're worthwhile!
|See - not many macarons!!|
My best friend Consuela and I had a hard time deciding what it is that we wanted. In the end, I only purchased two macarons in the chocolate and hazelnut flavour, hoping that they'd taste like Nutella. Consuela, however, splurged and ordered a few cakes, a few macarons and some chocolates to take away... and she now tells me that the mud cake, sprinkled with salt, was "the most amazing mudcake ever!" - now I wish I had bought more stuff...
The cafe itself is amazing in its interior decoration - a gorgeous array of chandeliers light up the entrance, with lots of comfy looking vintage chairs scattered about. I would imagine that this place would be a fantastic place for an indulgent dessert or hot chocolate after dinner, and will definitely be coming back one night to try it's dine in menu.
|I love the chandeliers!|
