We stopped for light lunch and we’re so glad we did! Coffee was very good and an egg & bacon roll freshly made on the spot was delicious. It was a cold day so we ate indoors but the floor to ceiling windows allowed a...beautiful outlook over natural rain forest frequented by various bird life. Friendly, welcoming staff. Highly recommended.More

Stopped in for coffee and tried the chocolate. Nice cappuccino but delicious dark chocolate frog. Sat out on the great rear deck with peaceful bush views. Service ok. Would prefer a wider selection of meals before having lunch here.

Our motor biking group was given our own area out the back. We all enjoyed our cappuccinos; lattes and hot chocolates. Most of us bought some chocolate to take home ; it is lovely chocolate. Thanks for welcoming us! Sheri from Iron Maidens MC club.

During COVID I heard an interview with the owner and was impressed. Ordered chocolate to be delivered to family, was quick and easy. Family members loved the chocolate.More

Nice location. Maybe a bit sterile. Hot chocolate method is odd. You essentially make your own drink which is counterintuitive given it’s a cafe. They make the sandwiches for you though.

We popped by Platypi Chocolate on Easter Sunday with friends for morning tea (we already had a lunch booking elsewhere). The building is spacious with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. We were lucky enough to get the couches on the deck. Lovely outlook over...the trees. We all enjoyed our coffees (the iced coffee was huge and tasty), a friend enjoyed her chocolates. The Frog in a Big was ok, the 'bog' was very thick though, not mousse like I expected. Staff were lovely too. We are looking forward to returning for a proper breakfast when next in Forrest.More

Light-filled building with Stunning natural surfaces of wood and slate, set high amongst the trees. A unique and beautiful setting. Delicious hot chocolate made with their own chocolate, and optional flavour bombs. Very friendly and welcoming staff and lots of wonderful looking house made treats...in the cabinet. Great for all ages. Highly recommended.More
