Went for Mother's day- rainy and miserable, but this was the perfect place. The waitress was fantastically welcoming as well as being knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the chocolate.

We sat outside with the blankets provided and enjoyed a wonderful chili hot chocolate as well as some excellent puddings. Will definitely be coming back, and bringing our friends.

Thank you so much for your review and positive feedback during a busy Mother's Day service. Happy to hear the blankets provided helped in the cold weather and that you chose the Aztec spiced chilli hot chocolate which always warms from the inside!
We look forward to welcoming you back with your friends in toe as well!

Marcus and all the team at Red Cacao.

We were driving through the Adelaide hills and had heard about Red Cacao from a friend. So we decided to detour and go for a hot chocolate. It was a lousy and cold day. A beanie was a necessity.
It was an absolute pleasure. So many choices of chocolate. Superb hot chocolate. I selected the 100% cacao and added a touch of sugar. Also enjoyed a salted caramel and dark chocolate tart; only $4.
Lots of choices of chocolate to take home. All made there. Took home a bagful.
I highly recommend Red Cacao and will return when next visiting Stirling. The detour off the freeway makes it worthwhile.
They also serve coffee, but everyone seemed to be drinking hot chocolate.
Couples, young and old and the place is child friendly.
Yum!

Thank Robert S

So glad that you did stop off at our Chocolate Cafe while you were driving through the Adelaide Hills and that you enjoyed your experience with us. The 100% cacao hot chocolate has been a real winner with many people opting to try this intense chocolaty drink and i certainly dont blame you for wanting to add a touch of sugar! Thank you Robert for recommending us so highly and we hope that you will make us a regular stopping point while visiting the hills

Red Cacao is a warm and friendly cafe situated in the leafy suburb of Stirling, offering a choice of different coffees and a matching chocolate. The proprietor (Marcus) and his wife are always welcoming (as are their staff) and make you feel at home immediately you walk through the door. Marcus is the chocolatier and makes the best chocolate I have eaten. There is an amazing selection of his chocolate in many forms, I strongly recommend it. A taste sensation and makes for wonderful gifts. On Friday nights the cafe is open for dessert night.

Hello Jisaca.
Thank you immensely for your five star review and your kind words about myself, Yvi and all our wonderful staff. Feedback like this always warms our hearts and makes us smile and it is wonderful to know our efforts are appreciated. We really enjoy the Dessert Bar offering as well and its such a unique and different experience then anything else that is around. Gifts is something that we are very passionate about and we love coming up with new concepts and packaging ideas for all gift ideas and solutions.

We will surely see you soon.

The proprietor of this business is a young patisserie chef who has studied chocolate making in Belgium. Need I say more? We went to a chocolate dessert platter experience with 'out of this world' chocolate gastronomies, presented as a work of art! It felt like an unpardonable offence to touch them and then to mutilate them with my teeth was almost unthinkable - but I did anyway and I'm glad I let my lack of will-power take control!
Nestled into a side alcove off the Main Street in Stirling, this is definitely a MUST VISIT. Please enjoy.
