Brunelli is a huge Italian Café at the west end of Rundle Street with plenty of seating and a wide ranging menu. The menu on the wall advertised an Italian hot chocolate but on further enquiry the Café no longer makes this. Instead Merkel opted for the standard hot chocolate but he probably got some special treatment as a concession for Brunelli not having the thicker style drink. The hot chocolate was rich and delicious with a good chocolate flavour. It came with pink and white marshmallows and was topped with a froth and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. It was served in a Vittoria coffee glass with a wire handle and cost four dollars.
