Visited the Red Cacao after the Lofty Mountain on a hot afternoon. There were four adults and two children aged 2yrs and 5yrs gasping for something cool and refreshing! We ordered iced coffees for the adults and Rainbow Ice Creams from the children’s menu four...the kids. The drinks and ice creams were excellent and I would recommend them, however, the children were the last to receive their ice creams some five minutes after the first adult was served. I would have given the Red Cacao a full five stars if they had served the children first as it is good practice not to make them watch and wait while the adults all have their order on the table. I simply couldn’t start mine until theirs had arrived. Despite everything, we all enjoyed the visit.More

This café was so busy the day I visited I could barely get in the door to look at the chocolate. Unlike many of the Adelaide Hills chocolate offerings, this is hand made, quality individual chocolates and chocolate products, so if you want fine boxed...chocolates or bars of handmade chocolate, this is the place. The staff were friendly, helpful and competent and the chocolates delicious. A definite must for a treat or a gift.More

Out of this world chocolates, coupled with great service makes this a must for coffee, cake or lunch. The chocolate range is amazing and tastes wonderful. Set in a small arcade in beautiful Stirling,it’s a great little spot to stop and treat yourself to something...yum. I returned after a number of years to find Red Cacao has gone from strength to strength.More

Have visited twice in the last 3 months! Quick coffee and croissant the first time and a lunch the second time. Both times were lovely, food and coffee terrific. Staff were so friendly and made sure we had a blanket and outdoor heater outside. Great...winter experience!More

Great for a drink and a snack including a savoury bite. We take all our visitors here. The aztec hot chocolate is a favourite winter beverage!

Freezing cold outside...warm and friendly in here! Had the most amazing hot chai dark chocolate in a mug. It was HOT ( not trendy lukewarm) and so delicious- first time I've tried it, and I loved it. YUM. And with a complimentary small piece of...birthday cake on the side. Well staffed Cafe with busy, obviously well trained staff, lots of delicious treats to choose from. A must if you're passing through!More
