My recent visit was a quick one as I was simply picking up some pre ordered chocolates for a family member. Always enjoy going to Koko Black and browsing through the wonderful range of chocolates on display.

Not good enough to serve a sticky brioche without a serviette or cutlery, even if I am the first sit down customer of the day. Of course, cutlery arrived when I asked for it. The brioche and the hot chocolate was superb, as usual.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
