Square Café

This is a very pleasant Café with plenty of seating indoors looking out on to the East side of Hindmarsh Square. The seating is comfortable and spacious and the piped music is soothing. The Café does a range of light meals and sandwiches.

The hot chocolate cost $4.00 for a standard hot chocolate and $4.30 for a Vienna hot chocolate. Merkel opted for the Vienna hot chocolate. The hot chocolate was topped with light whipped cream and sprinkled with cocoa. It also came with a marshmallow. This was a reasonable hot chocolate with a milky taste but the best part of the experience was the comfortable surroundings.

Merkel noticed while sipping his Vienna chocolate that Square Café also did a Jaffa hot chocolate. This situation demanded a return on the following day. The Jaffa is an Australian and New Zealand confectionary made by Allen's and Cadbury. It is a chocolate covered with an orange flavoured coating. The hot chocolate was finished with a tasty white froth with a sprinkle of chocolate in the shape of a star. The drink was the best orange hot chocolate that Merkel has tasted and beats the Chocolate Bean and the home made orange-hazelnut chocolate. The Jaffa hot chocolate probably cost about $4.80 and came in a generous ceramic mug with an Allen's Jaffa as an extra.

This venue seems to have closed and is now on the list of disappearing hot chocolate venues.
