We count down the best chocolate shops in town
A welcome sight at the Strand Arcade and Queen Victoria Building, Koko Black's Sydney chocolate boutiques are an Aussie favourite and for good reason. You can browse sweet delights inspired by true blue flavours like lamington, Golden Gaytime and Wagon Wheels. The cute little native animals are another particular favourite.
Between selling their giant golden chocolate Murray cod and their milk-chocolate pandas, this QVB chocolaterie is known for its huge variety novelty shaped chocolates and affordable prices. They offer exclusively online chocolate packages that will be packaged with the uttermost care and delivered to all corners of Australia.
You can find the Rozelle, Petersham and Maroubra outposts of this boutique chocolaterie slinging chocolate stilettos and truffles of fine creation. These guys are known to wield some serious skill in the window display department. With their signature royal blue boxes and white ribbons, Belle Fleur may very well be the Tiffany's of the chocolate world.
While the chocolates are luxurious, the atmosphere is homely. The boutique was opened in 1930 by the Kapos family, and their Greek legacy is evident today in their fusion of European tradition with modern flavours. For those chocolate freckle lovers, Perfection Chocolates hand-pipe a range of messages on rainbow speckled rounds of goodness.
