    Yummy
    The House of Avers, on the Bass Highway at Latrobe, is a chocolate factory and cafe, which provides you with information about the history of chocolate making and a collection of museum pieces which illuminate that history. Lots of chocolate moulds. You can also watch chocolatiers doing their thing on the other side of the glass, which was fascinating. Sue went shopping. Wyndarra Lodge, as the building was formerly known, is an oversized Californian bungalow, built in 1931. Well presented. The chocolate was delicious.

    Tasty truffle
    We stopped in here on the drive back down South for old times sake. The samples are not as good as they used to be. But they do give you one whole truffle in a little bag. The prices are not the factory outlet prices they used to be. It is now more for the tourists than us locals.

    Interesting Visit
    We visited this establishment as part of a group tour from the cruise ship. The production at the time was Easter Eggs and we were able to watch the process from behind the glass windows. Whilst the chocolate was tasty it is quite expensive and to be honest if it wasn’t for the fact that it was part of an organised tour I wouldn’t make the effort. The ice cream was nice though.

    Not as good as it once was.
    We have been visiting House of Anvers for many years, each time we visit Tasmania. We just spent the weekend in Launceston and drove to Anvers for breakfast yesterday. The smoked salmon baguette was still nice. It now comes with a small pear and walnut salad which was tasty. The iced coffee was so weak I wasn't sure if it was supposed to be an iced coffee or chocolate. I ordered a double shot of espresso to add to it and it was much better. We went to the chocolate shop which only had white chocolate buds to sample. These were in individual white paper bags which is fine, but there definitely could've been a variety of samples offered. We bought two small packets of fudge, but that was it. We used to walk out with heaps of fudge and chocolate. It's gotten very expensive and the experience is lacking compared to previous visits.

    Good but was better
    I used to love Anvers for the generous samples and good prices at the factory shop. These days the samples are small and the prices high. Still a nice place to stop but not a great as before...

Whilst the chocolate museum was very interesting I found the chocolate to be very overpriced and not to my liking .
The coffees we ordered took over 15mins to arrive and was on the weaker side .
This is just my personal opinion

We stopped in for some samples. They used to be much more generous in the good old days but we got some dark and white buds. The prices are really high now so we don't buy any more.

Chocolate lovers need to stop here. Fabulous hot chocolate and a variety of deserts available along with a pretty decent selection of chocolates to buy or icecream.

How to watch chocolate delights being made is an experience. Their different varieties available is big and their ice cream is yum.

Opens at 7am, straight off the Spirit and chocolate waffles and cheese platter for breakfast-what a great start to 5 weeks in Tasmania, don't miss the display out the back-the chocolate Tassie Devil is now our bench mark to all things made from Chocolate, you really do expect him to move before your very eyes!
