Café Presto is in the Arkaba Shopping centre and has a good view through the big glass windows of leafy Parkside. The cafe serves breakfast, lunch and coffees. I had an iced chocolate there on a warm day. The drink came topped with a scoop of ice cream, a squirt of whipped cream, a sprinkle for chocolate powder and a squirt to chocolate syrup. Chocolate syrup had been used to make the drink and it looked decorative through the walls of the tall glass. While white milk looks better through the glass walls I prefer the taste of chocolate milk and it is difficult to stir in the chocolate until the cream and icecream on top has been dealt with. Still, the chocolate syrup was not sickly sweet like many types of syrup. It was a refreshing drink for $5.50.
