This is a blog about drinking chocolate and follows the life of Merkel Marmaduke through the cafes of Adelaide, SA and elsewhere, while he searches for the ultimate hot chocolate. Check this blog out for hot chocolate reviews, hot chocolate news and a whole lot of nonsense about finding a good hot chocolate. This blog can be accessed from the ChocAdelaide Android app.

This is a new venue on at 25 O'Connell Street in North Adelaide specialising in hot chocolates and chocolate desserts. The Marmaduke family visited there one evening. They shared a tropical fruit chocolate fondue and enjoyed some wonderful beverages. This is a small venue in an old cottage. There are a few tables inside and a few in the back garden.
Merkel went for the dark Chocolate Nut which was a hot chocolate with praline for $6.50. It came in a big ceramic mug on a saucer with a marhsmallow. It was finished with a brown forth and sprinkle of chocolate and spices. The chocolate was a delicious rich Belgian chocolate the flavour from the praline was fairly incidental. The junior Marmadukes had iced chocolates that were topped with a scoop of iced cream and had chocolate patterns on the inside of the glass. Again these drinks were made with rich Belgian chocolate.
