BTS Cafe

Next to Butterflies at 33 Pirie Street is BTS Café specialising in cupcakes. A lovely reader suggested I visit BTS in an earlier posting. This Café has very feminine pink and mauve décor. The shop sells cupcakes so do not expect a meal, but they also sell some special beverages. Merkel and Myrtle grabbed some lunch over the road and then stopped at BTS for a cake and hot chocolate.

The cup of hot chocolate is made from 40grams of real Callebaut Belgian Chocolate. Merkel knew he was in for a treat. It was served in a plain white ceramic cup and saucer, complete with a pink and a white marshmallow. The froth was unpretentious, fairly thin and a light brown colour. The drink was special and unmistakably dark and Belgian. This is not a thick or creamy hot chocolate but the taste is remarkable for lovers of fine chocolate. The cup cost $3.95 and the mug cost $4.95.
